Ten years after RateStar transformed the way lenders select MI coverage, weve launched the next generation of RateStar, which incorporates both our decade of risk-based pricing experience and feedback from our customers. With updated RateStars advanced capabilities, loan officers can compete effectively for loans by offering a real point of difference.

We are excited to add Arch MIs RateStar MI quote to our suite of mortgage insurance offerings, said Nancy Pollard, Managing Director of Pricing Technologies, Compass Analytics.
