Radian Group Inc., headquartered in Philadelphia, announced that ValuAmerica, a Radian subsidiary offering settlement and appraisal products and services, has been renamed Radian Settlement Services Inc.
The name change follows the debut of Radian’s new brand identity in October. At that time, Radian also announced its plan to unite all of its subsidiaries under its new brand.
“Changing ValuAmerica to Radian Settlement Services is a key next step in Radian’s evolution as a broad spectrum solutions provider to the mortgage and real estate industries,” noted Rick Thornberry, Radian CEO. “With every integration, we further strengthen our company and enhance our ability to deliver more of what our customers need to successfully manage and transact risk across the mortgage and real estate spectrum.”
Radian currently operates as a family of companies that includes Radian Guaranty, Radian Reinsurance, Clayton Holdings, Green River Capital, EnTitle Insurance Company, Red Bell Real Estate, LLC, Independent Settlement Services and the former ValuAmerica, now known as Radian Settlement Services.
“The need for efficiency and the demand for speed has never been greater than it is today in the title industry,” noted Eric Ray, Senior EVP, Technology and Transaction Services. “Through Radian Settlement Services, we are in a unique position to leverage expertise, technology and data across all of our businesses in order to deliver value-driven solutions for our customers.”
Collectively, Radian offers a full range of residential mortgage and real estate products and services, including mortgage and title insurance, appraisal products, non-agency securitization reviews, secondary marketing support, and custom insurance products for investors seeking to participate in emerging risk-sharing opportunities.
