February 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

Essent Group Ltd. announced that it has entered into an agreement through its subsidiary Essent US Holdings, Inc. to acquire Agents National Title Holding Company and Boston National Holdings LLC from Incenter LLC, a subsidiary of Finance of America Companies Inc. for $100 million.

A spokesperson said, “Agents National Title, based in Missouri, is a title insurance underwriter with 44 state licenses, and issues title insurance products through a network of title insurance agents. Boston National Title is an independent title agency based in North Carolina that provides title and settlement services, with licenses in 40 states and the District of Columbia.”

“Title insurance is a natural complement to our MI business with relatively low and stable loss ratios historically,” said Mark Casale, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Essent. “The acquisitions of Agents National Title and Boston National Title add a team of seasoned title professionals to Essent and provide a platform to leverage our capital position, lender network and operational expertise across an adjacent real estate sector as we continue to expand our franchise.”

The spokesperson said, “The closing of this transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC is acting as financial advisor to Essent.”
