The Modern-Day Handshake

“Our industry is a successful one. And much of its success is based on the power of relationships, summed up in a handshake – for centuries a symbol of trust, respect and the closing of a deal.”
One thing is clear, technology is never going to create trust by itself. It’s purely there to enable trust to be built more efficiently and potentially amplify trust that may otherwise go unnoticed.
