Randy Dyer, former executive vice president of NSSTA and industry expert on structured settlements joins Mark Wahlstrom on this weeks Speaking of Settlements. Mark and Randy discuss the recent slump in structured settlement premium, the political implications of the 2008 elections on litigation and claims as well as the future of the structured settlement industry and profession.
One of the great things about being over 50 and independent is having the freedom to say what you think with out a lot of repercussions and Mark and Randy will be doing a three part series of conversations about the structure settlement profession from the perspective of their combined 50 plus years of experience. Part one is centering on the legal and political trends, as well as economic factors, that point to a coming golden age in settlements, while at the same time seeing the contradiction of a serious slump in the first two quarters of 2009 in annuity premium written.
This interview is longer then our typical 10 minute piece, but it's a very interesting conversation as to the current state of the industry and lays the foundation for future segments looking at ways to grow the structured settlement profession in the coming years.
