Business Description

Industry: Insurance - Specialty » Insurance - Specialty
Compare:SAXPY, MSADY, FNF, AGO, LCSHF » details
Investors Title Company was incorporated in the state of North Carolina in 1973. The Company is a holding company that operates through its subsidiaries. The Company's main business activity, and its only reportable operating segment, is the issuance of residential and commercial title insurance through ITIC and NITIC. The Company underwrites land title insurance for owners and mortgagees as a primary insurer. ITIC and NITIC offers primary title insurance coverage to owners and mortgagees of real estate and reinsurance of title insurance risks to other title insurance companies. Title insurance protects against loss or damage resulting from title defects affecting real property. The commitments and policies are predominantly issued using standard forms approved by the American Land Title Association ("ALTA"). ITIC and NITIC issues title insurance through branch operations, or through partially owned or independent title insurance agents. The Company's title insurance subsidiaries determine the terms and conditions upon which they will insure title to the real property according to their underwriting standards, policies and procedures. Title insurance premiums written reflect a one-time premium payment, with no recurring premiums. Additionally, the Company provides tax-deferred real property exchange services through its subsidiaries, Investors Title Exchange Corporation ("ITEC") and Investors Title Accommodation Corporation ("ITAC"); investment management and trust services to individuals, trusts and other entities through its subsidiaries Investors Trust Company ("Investors Trust") and Investors Capital Management Company ("ICMC"); and management services to title insurance agencies through its subsidiary, Investors Title Management Services ("ITMS"). The Company markets its title insurance services to a range of customers in the residential and commercial market sectors of the real estate industry. Issuing agents are typically real estate attorneys or subsidiaries of community and regional mortgage lending institutions, depending on local customs and regulations and the Company's marketing strategy in a particular territory. The Company is an insurance holding company and therefore it is subject to regulation in the states in which its insurance subsidiaries do business.
