French term or phrase: compte gage-espèces
Is this the same as an "escrow account"? I have been unable to find a translation. "XXX a reçu notification de la part du (bank) que le prix TTC de l'Assignment avait été effectivement versé sur le compte gage-espèces".

cash collateral account (?)
Explanation:
Would that fit?

<<CASH COLLATERAL ACCOUNT - An account in the name of a borrower that serves as a clearing account with its bank, usually for the purpose of securing and servicing an indebtedness. With a cash collateral account, money is deposited in a lockbox account; when the funds are collected and the deposits have cleared, the debt served by the account is reduced. A cash collateral account cannot be drawn upon like a checking account and essentially is considered a zero balance account. >>
