OLDWICK - MAY 22, 2020 09:00 AM (EDT)
AM Best has assigned a Financial Strength Rating of B++ (Good) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bbb+” to Title Resources Guaranty Company (TRG) (Dallas, TX). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable. TRG is ultimately owned by Realogy Holdings Corp. (Realogy) [NYSE: RLGY], a publicly traded company and real estate brokerage provider that franchises and owns several of the industry’s leading real estate brands and brokerage services firms.

The ratings reflect TRG’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management (ERM).

These rating factors are derived from TRG’s favorable level of risk-adjusted capitalization, and its consistently profitable underwriting and investment results. In addition, TRG is a monoline writer of title insurance, with premium concentration in Texas. TRG benefits from its market position as the seventh-largest title insurance writer in the United States, writing business in 42 states and Washington, D.C., as well as having physical locations in 20 states and Washington, D.C. and holding a 2% market share. Finally, TRG has a formalized ERM program, with Realogy’s board playing an active role in overseeing the company’s risk management and mitigation practices.
