Terry Taylor, an experienced professional in structured settlements whose credentials include serving as president of the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA), says that while he is generally in favor of structured settlements, he knows that sometimes a bad situation can cause a client to want to sell their payments. Taylor cautions, though, that many factoring companies are not to be trusted. Yet, Taylor says, “There are companies out there that are concerned more with the person selling their structured settlement than the profit they can make from the sale. I was fortunate enough to find one of those companies in Strategic Capital. When I first started referring business to them I was shocked to find that they actually talked one of my referrals out of selling his structure before filing bankruptcy, when I could not convince him to do that.” This quote by Taylor highlights the importance of you doing your research and finding a caring company, like Strategic Capital, to sell your payments to, not just going with the one that advertises the most or gives you the hard sell.
