Given the news that broke recently concerning GSE cutoffs, I was concerned. I'm an Old Republic agent and I don't like the brand which I so respect being tarnished. Placing the mortgage guaranty business in run off mode is the logical step given market conditions but a failure to take that step and bruise the brand name with a GSE cutoff was disturbing.
I expressed my concern to my OR agency rep and she moved it up the chain. This morning I received a call from regional management who assured me that the mortgage guaranty business is operating in run off mode. I'm not sure how I missed that news but I was happy to hear it. ;)
