Ivan had an idea when he conceived Settlement Giant. He set out to change how our industry works and for whom it works, with a simple and common-sense idea – People should be able to access what they rightfully own, without having to navigate a murky, swampy minefield of high fees, low payouts that in many cases end with an unexpected outcome. Settlement Giant was born from a desire to build upon steadfast principals that change the way people do business.
Over the last decade, Ivan has worked closely with some of the nation’s largest secondary market buyers & sellers of structured settlement and related receivables – he brings a decade of valuable industry experience that will help Settlement Giant become the standard.
Ivan has been involved in building short and long-term capital solutions for clients for over 2 decades, providing strategic and innovative financial ideas and strategies and looks forward to continuing to build upon this legacy at Settlement Giant.
A California native who now lives in New York and established and manages Settlement Giant’s New York offices, Robert has more than a decade of experience in business development, sales training, and consulting, predominantly in the mortgage banking and specialty financial services sectors. Robert cut his teeth in the mortgage banking field, as a loan officer with various California-based mortgage brokerage outfits, typically the organization’s top volume producer or leader of the top performing team, managing teams of more than a dozen sales representatives at a time.
With an emphasis on transparency, honesty, and empathy both in dealing with clients and his approach to training, management, and oversight, and a keen ability to resolve emerging issues and problems, Robert is able to earn, secure, and maintain unfaltering trust from clients, demonstrating throughout the relationship why that is deserved.
But, the art of the deal isn’t the only art at which Robert excels: he is a bona fide artist, selling out in exhibitions dating back to his pre-teen years, his career direction of choice before venturing into the financial services world which he decided never to leave while still maintaining the heart and soul of an artist. To this day, in fact, it is not unusual for Robert to be commissioned to develop individual works for celebrities known the world over.
