Backed by a solid capital base, we offer expert risk management and financial services to help mortgage lenders protect their investments and expand their origination opportunities. We employ more than 800 professionals and support staff at our headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina, and in locations throughout the country. An industry-leading sales force with deep relationships gives us unparalleled insight into market challenges, coupled with the maturity and experience to offer solutions. Arch MI is a marketing term for Arch Mortgage Insurance Company and United Guaranty Residential Insurance Company.

Mortgage insurance, or simply “MI,” helps people buy a house with only a modest down payment. This is because MI protects lenders against the increased risk of borrower default related to mortgages with high loan-to-value (LTV) ratios.
