Bentzen Financial is committed to professionalism, ethics and integrity. Our four decades of combined experience in the structured settlement industry affects how we approach the factoring business. We bring the same financial planning approach to factoring as we did with structured settlements. Our goal is to give annuitants the information and options they require to make informed decisions.
Rhonda Bentzen, CSSC
Rhonda entered the structured settlement business as a broker in 1988 and she received her Certified Structured Settlement Consultant designation in 1999. After IRC 5891 was implemented, Rhonda saw a unique opportunity to work with her fellow brokers to effect change in the factoring business. In 2002, she became the first structured settlement professional to enter the factoring arena. Her goal then, as it is now, was to bring professionalism and integrity to an industry renowned for marginal ethics and high pressure sales.
W. Campbell Mears, Jr., CPA, CSSC
Cam entered the structured settlement industry in 1993 and held sales and management positions on both the broker and insurer sides, as well as with Medicare compliance and information technology companies serving the industry. He was active in the National Structured Settlement Trade Association, chairing the Technology and Marketing Committees.
Cam joined the factoring industry in 2010 due to his concern and distaste for conventional factoring company sales tactics. Knowing that some people do need factoring, namely those whose needs have changed post-settlement, but also knowing that most factoring companies care for their profits at the expense of the needs of annuitants, Cam entered the industry as a referral only professional; exactly the opposite of the norm.
