Fitch Publishes U.S. Title Insurance Industry Dashboard


CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--

Fitch Ratings has published its Dashboard Report for the U.S. Title Insurance sector.

The U.S. Title Insurance Dashboard discusses Fitch's Rating Outlook for title insurance, and highlights the industry's solid profitability and capitalization tied to an improved housing market. Favorable trends were led by strength in purchase originations and commercial markets along with rising real estate prices in 2013. Fitch expects lower refinance activity and a slowing trend in home price appreciation and home sales to lead to a modest decline in title premiums in 2014.

Favorably, title insurers' expense structures are in a considerably better position today to remain profitable and withstand a decline in market activity relative to the downturn of 2007-2009.

In addition, the report discusses title insurance market share and variations in performance among leading companies in this sector.

The 'U.S. Title Insurance Dashboard' is available on Fitch's website at 'wwwfitchratings.com' or by clicking on the link.

Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.
