ARCADIA Settlements Group is the nation’s preeminent structured settlement company, employing professionals in 54 offices throughout the nation. Our consultants have an average of more than 15 years of structured settlement experience and each has developed a diverse knowledge base that enables them to address virtually any settlement situation. The roots of ARCADIA Settlements Group date back to 1972 when the firm structured its first settlement. Since that time, ARCADIA has partnered with clients to settle more than 300,000 claims involving structured settlement funding of over $30 Billion.
Clients have made the decision to work with ARCADIA Settlements Group based on a variety of differentiators which distinguish ARCADIA from other structured settlement companies: access to all structured settlement annuity providers; state of the art proprietary management reporting and case tracking systems, a robust quality control department to assure accuracy of case design, rates and documentation, consultant expertise, superior training programs, advanced underwriting capabilities to provide expertise on complex cases, highly qualified consultants, case managers and corporate office support staff.
What Makes Us Unique
Employee Model: All ARCADIA consultants are employees of the firm. This employment model contrasts with the more common industry model of loosely organized independent contractors who, generally speaking, are more challenged to follow consistent processes and procedures. Clients tell us our employment model allows for easier back up services, more consistency related to service, and a stronger team commitment to their needs. Furthermore, having all structured settlement consultants as employees allows ARCADIA much greater quality control for the benefit of clients.
Quality Assurance: Clients are able to reduce the risk of settlement language mistakes by relying on ARCADIA’s centralized document Quality Assurance (QA) team – reviewing all details of a completed transaction prior to distribution to the client. The QA team double checks the work of the consultants and their case managers in the field. Clients tell us this is unique in the industry as most structured settlement consultants only have their case manager check their work, while we have two rounds of settlement language review – at the local level and by our QA team in Denver.
Highly Experienced Consultants and Case Managers: The average experience level of an ARCADIA Consultant is 15 years, while the average experience level of an ARCADIA Case Manager is 11 years.
Proprietary Case Management System: ARCADIA owns a proprietary case management system, (EDISON™), developed specifically for our industry providing enhanced case tracking, document preparation and client reporting. Clients are able to quickly gain visibility into how our services are adding value for them.
Proprietary Quoting Software: ARCADIA developed and launched a proprietary trademarked quoting software known as Integrated Quoting™. IQ™ allows ARCADIA employees to quote multiple life companies simultaneously for a specific target benefit stream, freeing their time to better serve their clients. This revolutionary tool greatly reduces errors in the quoting process while increasing the speed at which our brokers can generate settlement illustrations under time constraints at settlement conferences.
