In an effort to address changes occurring in the industry, a regional underwriter has initiated its first "Lunchtime Updates: Alliant National Educational Series." Read on to see what topic was tackled first.
Alliant National Title Insurance Co., a title insurance underwriter that partners with independent agents, launched the company's continuing education series, "Lunchtime Updates: Alliant National Educational Series" for the organization's 40-plus agents.
Approximately 125 industry professionals participated in the telephone conference in August titled "Making Sense of Capital Market Turmoil."
Two experts in mortgages and investment banking presented at the conference, providing insight into the global capital market volatility and underlying causes, including the quality of collateral supporting mortgage-backed securities.
"Alliant National Title Insurance took the 'bull by the horns' and addressed some very serious and timely changes happening today in our industry and in our day-to-day professional lives," said John Martin, president of Lone Star Title Co. in El Paso, Texas, an Alliant independent agent. "It is critical to our clients and to the integrity of our industry to have all of the issues understood, even as the changes are unfolding. As an independent agent, these opportunities allow everyone in our offices to feel better equipped and more knowledgeable than most title insurance agents."
The educational series was proposed by Phyllis Mulder, Alliant senior vice president and counsel.
"It's proving to be a valuable vehicle," said Alliant Chief Executive Officer Robert Grubb. "Our job, as a company, is to provide tools and information to our Independent Agents that they may not otherwise have access to, so that they can improve and protect their business."
The "Lunchtime Updates: Alliant National Educational Series" will be held quarterly, with the next forum scheduled for December 2007. For more information, call Dave Ginger, Alliant National Title Insurance president, at 303-682-9800, ext. 200.
