Coverage Highlights


Mortgage impairment insurance covers a lender’s interest if a borrower failed to adequately insure a property. Real estate-owned (REO) policies cover banks and other mortgage lenders on repossessed property portfolios, while forced placed insurance allows mortgage providers to cover their interests when borrowers fail to purchase their own insurance.

ArgoGlobal’s clients for these types of coverage range from small community banks through to large multinational institutions.

Some 95 percent of ArgoGlobal’s business is U.S.-based, with incidental coverage worldwide.
