Research Notes on Mortgage Insurance
The company has good relations with the public sector. It offers financial guarantee for public finance. RDN is the third largest mortgage insurer in the U.S.
 
RDN’s CFO states the following:
"We are seeing some improvement in the macroeconomic environment and housing market, which in turn has begun to stabilize the performance of our mortgage insurance legacy book," stated Quint. "While we believe the recovery to a more normal economic environment will be slow, there are many signs that the worst is behind us." (2)
* Approximately one third of RDN’s net income from non-mortage insurance. (1)
* Capital ratio (16.9:1) is among the lowest in the industry (2)
