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.
