Genworth MI Canada Inc.(MIC-TSX) has been a leading Canadian private residential mortgage insurer since 1995, providing mortgage insurance services to Canadian chartered banks, trust companies and other lending institutions. Genworth Canada is 40% owned by Genworth Financial (GNW-NYSE) in the US. Federally regulated lenders in Canada are required to purchase transactional mortgage insurance in respect of a residential mortgage loan whenever the loan-to-value ratio exceeds 80%. They also provide portfolio mortgage insurance to lenders for loans with loan-to-value ratios of 80% or less. Transaction mortgage insurance comprises about 90% of revenues. Funds held in an investment portfolio pending possible claims payouts, contributes approximately 40% of income before tax, the balance primarily from transactional insurance. Profits are earned from insurance fees, and the investment portfolio after operating expenses, regulatory reserves, interest and costs of foreclosures are paid.

Their mortgage business focuses primarily on high ratio (transactional) mortgages. Approximately 87% of mortgages in Canada are originated with a loan-to-value ratio of greater than 80%, considered high loan-to-value mortgages. Lenders may also obtain mortgage insurance for mortgages with loan-to-value ratios of 80% or less, known as low loan-to-value or portfolio mortgages. High loan-to-value mortgages typically represent about 90% of the gross premiums written, and low loan-to-value mortgage insurance represents 10%. To the extent that home prices appreciate over time and/or the principal amount of the loan is paid down, the effective loan-to-value of the insurance written in a given year decreases. The value of mortgages to total home value is estimated at 60%. High loan-to-value new insurance written is comprised of approximately 65% of five year fixed rate mortgages or terms of longer duration and 35% are variable rate mortgages.
