ATLANTA – Integrated Financial Settlements, Inc. (IFS) is proud to announce the launch of Structures, a new company in the settlements industry that is committed to creating innovative and dynamic settlement solutions for stakeholders in the settlement process.
Structures was formed out of a desire to expand the structured settlements marketplace, and to address the ever-changing needs of its clients by offering a broad range of tax-efficient settlement solutions for stakeholders in the settlement process. The IFS companies are the largest writers of structured settlement annuities in the United States, holding a 41% market share through its four structured settlement agencies, which produce approximately $2.4 billion in structured settlement annuity sales annually. The IFS companies have provided structured settlement services to their clients for over four decades and are widely recognized for the knowledge and expertise their consultants possess in resolving the most challenging issues that arise for stakeholders in the settlement process.
Structures offers a complimentary array of proprietary insurance programs and market-based solutions for the settlement of disputes. “Traditional structured settlement annuities continue to be ideal programs for providing guaranteed fixed-income for many personal injury clients, but through the exclusive programs we’ve developed we are now able to supplement these annuity programs with market-based, tax efficient income solutions to meet specific client needs,” said Structures partner Kyle Bollman. “All parties working to reach a financial settlement should be educated about how and why structured settlements are different today. They are no longer one-size-fits-all, but comprehensive solutions to address the needs of each case, using traditional fixed income annuities and innovative, market-based, tax efficient solutions. Over the past seven years, we have successfully designed the most cost-effective and tax advantageous solutions for the settlement of physical and non-physical injury cases.” Structures has developed proprietary, tax efficient settlement solutions and contingency fee arrangements utilizing a flexible platform that can accommodate third party financial advisors.
Structures provides full-service operations and support to settlement industry veterans dedicated to providing superior service to their customers throughout North America. The Structures leadership team is comprised of tax, financial, legal, operations and customer service professionals who possess unparalleled experience and success within the settlements industry. Their knowledge and ability to create comprehensive and tailor-made solutions makes them invaluable to all parties in the settlement process. “We believe these new settlement solutions will be embraced by plaintiffs and defendants alike, since they will bring valuable tools to settlement discussions more frequently,” says Structures partner Sean Coleman.
Structures, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the leading innovator and designer of cutting-edge settlement solutions for stakeholders in the settlement process. The flexibility of these programs allows their use in many different settlement situations, such as physical injury, non-physical injury, worker’s compensation, employment, environmental, construction defect, sports and celebrity endorsements, and any type of contingency-related attorney fees. In addition to annuity and market-based structured settlements, the Structures team offers post-settlement annuities, a Foreign Wire Program and a full array of comprehensive trust services.
