Mortgage Impairment/Real Estate Owned
ArgoGlobal writes mortgage impairment, real estate owned and forced placed insurance policies. It’s been a leader in this niche for more than a decade.
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.
