Gifty very much believes in structured settlements: “I also believe that those with normal work life expectancies can well afford to take on market risk. If they lose, they will just work harder or longer. However, those without a work life expectancy are very different; if they lose, they are liable to rely on social assistance, which is something no person would want.”
