JGW is the nation’s leading purchaser of illiquid annuity payments directly from consumers. JGW has developed its market leading position through its multi-channel, direct-to-consumer marketing platform and two highly recognizable brands: JG Wentworth and Peachtree. Since 1992, JGW subsidiary companies and their predecessors have purchased over $8 billion of future payment obligations from consumers. J.G. Wentworth’s leadership in the structured settlement industry is substantiated by volume of transactions, AAA Ratings on its securitizations and the innovation it has added to the structured settlements sector. The Company is headquartered in Radnor, Pennsylvania.
Since the capital injection in 2009, the JLL team has worked closely with JGW management to improve the Company. J.G. Wentworth has since emerged as the nation’s number one purchaser of structured settlements. Its leading market position was further strengthened in 2011 by the acquisition of Peachtree Financial, the nation’s second largest player in the sector. This transaction created significant strategic value as the two companies maintained highly complementary services with minimal customer overlap.
Strong Growth Potential: The JGW platform is in a unique position to leverage its financial strength in structured settlements to increase market penetration and also leverage its strong consumer brands to fuel growth in other product lines and sectors.
