Continued strong NIW, movement in quarterly market share among insurers, improvements in IIF performance, and an update on MILN issuances to-date
The Private Mortgage Insurer (PMI) landscape has grown more competitive in recent years; “Black-box” risk-based pricing engines – largely adopted industry-wide in late-2018/early-2019 – have made pricing and business mix differences amongst the 6 MIs more opaque than ever. Over this time Milliman has been tracking the PMIs’ New Insurance Written (NIW) and Insurance In Force (IIF) performance to keep our finger on the pulse of the market. The linked publication provides information and context regarding trends and differences amongst the PMIs’ businesses for 1Q 2021.
The data used to compile this report includes publicly available PMIs’ disclosures (Earnings Releases, Financial Supplements, and 10-K/Qs) as well as additional aggregated industry data extracted from Milliman’s M-PIRe platform.
