A Acadian Assurance and Brad Thibodaux and Associates was founded in 1965 by President Bradley Joseph Thibodaux.  In 1996, Cody Biggs joined the firm and continues to add to the products, solutions and strategies utilized to help our clients protect and grow their assets. 

Embarking on a career as an independent advisor is not necessarily out of the ordinary, but Cody’s intended path for his clients was anything but ordinary.  In 2004 the stock market was performing well, the housing and real estate markets were healthy, yet Cody passionately structured A Acadian Assurance to offer alternative safe investments to traditional investments that capitalize on the real estate or stock markets.  We are now providers of wholesale institutional asset classes directly to both qualified institutional investors, family offices and in certain instances accredited individual investment professionals.  

The result has been clients working with an independent boutique investment firm led by an independent financial advisor who delivers what our clients have come to view as a better financial plan.  Plans that offer investments that compete extremely well with traditional plans like 401Ks or IRAs, but frequently outperform the stock market over the long run. Plans that offer greater liquidity and decrease tax liability on the way to what, for many, can become a tax-free retirement.

Our team has a measurable advantage when presenting our truly alpha investments to our sophisticated clientele. Our team has proven through action our undying commitment to service.  Our focus is on presenting you with honest, reputable opportunities that have been time tested.


About Us


Cody Biggs, President of A Acadian Assurance and President of Brad Thibodaux and Associates is not your typical independent financial advisor.  The strategies that Cody has developed puts his clients on a path to a better financial plan and, for many, a tax free retirement. The seemingly unconventional wisdom from Cody or any independent financial advisor from A Better Financial Plan might include forgoing the traditional route of placing money into long term savings options like the company sponsored 401K, individual IRAs, or other tax qualified accounts. Most importantly, A Acadian Assurance will give you greater returns on your investments while decreasing investment risk.

 The key to our offering a better financial plan is ensuring that your money is working for you, a phrase that is overused yet under delivered.   Cody and A Acadian Assurance have developed an approach that helps make the desire for ‘hard working money’ a reality.  Delivering liquid investments that many times offer a tax-free retirement.

 A graduate of Baton Rouge Magnet, Cody began his career in Insurance.  After a short time, a natural enthusiasm and magnetic energy eventually led Cody to a successful sales career working with Brad Thibodaux, which allowed him to save and explore creative investment strategies for his own personal financial security.  His research leads him to the study of wealth management where he began enrolling in seminars, reading books and researching unorthodox money management tactics. Testing his unique ideas on his own accounts proved successful and excited Cody in a way his previous career path had not.  A Acadian Assurance has allowed him him to do for his client’s what he was able to achieve for himself.

 Touting his own matchless brand of unconventional investing, Cody continued to amass a significant client-base made up of smart investors who, like himself, could see there was a better way to achieve a financially satisfying and tax-free retirement.
