Mission Rationale

To provide market-responsive, real estate transfer products and services...

Old Republic Title will continue to identify, enter and remain in markets that can be profitably served. We will focus on markets, business opportunities and customers that represent the greatest potential for profits and growth.

Being market-responsive involves every employee in the Company. Each of our employees has the responsibility to recognize and attend to our customer's needs, whether they are internal customers or external customers.

Our service and product development process must be market-responsive. We must develop new products and services and profitably bring them to the marketplace.

...for individuals, businesses, and government...

Our products and services are provided to a broad spectrum of customers who in some manner participate in the real estate transfer process.

Our customers include individuals, businesses and government entities, as follows:

  • Residential and Commercial real estate buyers and sellers
  • Attorneys
  • Real estate brokers and agents
  • Appraisers
  • Surveyors
  • Investors
  • Mortgage brokers and bankers

...through direct operations and independent title agencies...

Our customers must realize a distinct value that cannot be obtained from our competitors. We must strive to offer the highest quality products and services through our network of direct operations and independent title agencies.

...resulting in planned, profitable growth...

All our direct operations and agency relationships must be profitable. We will control our growth by making informed decisions and taking managed risks in all areas of Old Republic Title. We can never be satisfied by providing minimal services or competing on price alone. Instead, we will strive to deliver what is needed, valued and deserved by our customers. Continuing profitability will provide us with the needed resources and support to weather downturns in business conditions, fund our growth and reward our employees.

We must contribute earnings to increase stockholder equity and to further ORI's long-term objective of being the leading provider of specialized insurance and related services.

...recognition as a title industry leader...

We will position the Old Republic Title as a financially strong, viable participant in the real estate transfer process. We will continue to be an advocate for financial integrity in the title insurance industry.
