Japan Real Estate Insight: Are Japanese More Risk Averse Than Other Nationalities?
This Real Estate Japan Insight segment is with Timothy Langley, President and Managing Director of Langley Esquire. In this week’s audio clip, Timothy talks about the role of an escrow agent in covering risk and ironically, why Japanese almost never use escrow. He argues that Japanese are some of the most risk-averse people in the world. Listen to the audio clip below and see if you agree!
Timothy was our February 2012 webinar speaker. He spoke about “ESCROW and Japan Real Estate“.
