Financial Warranties & Lender Protection

AmTrust Specialty Risk underwrites a variety of innovative
insurance products for financial institutions that give your borrowers peace of mind and lender protection you need.

Financial Institutions Warranty Coverage

Even with the best preparation, unexpected life events can have a significant impact on an individual’s financial well-being. Becoming unemployed, suffering a disability or even death can make it difficult for borrowers or their family members to pay back loans or other debts from lending institutions.

Innovative Financial Protection for Borrowers’ Peace of Mind

AmTrust Specialty Risk underwrites a variety of innovative insurance products that give your borrowers peace of mind about their ability to make loan payments when unforeseen events happen. We provide banks, credit unions and other types of lending institutions with warranties and debt protection products that generate revenue, manage risk, provide customer/member peace of mind and differentiate the institutions from their competition. These products include:

Lender’s Protection Program (LPP)

Built by AmTrust’s partner, Open Lending, LPP is an automated risk management software platform that enables lending institutions to approve a broader range of near-prime and non-prime auto loans while being protected by AmTrust’s auto loan default insurance. The benefits include:
  • You can confidently approve loan applications you’re declining today
  • Improves the profitability of your lending operations
  • Mitigates risk while still allowing your institution to offer attractive rates

For credit unions serving law enforcement officers, KILOD waives a member’s outstanding loans if the member dies while engaged in work-related activities as a full-time peace officer.

Lenders Single Interest/Vendor Single Interest

Protects lenders from loss or damage to personal property that is the collateral for loans, such as cars, light trucks, watercraft, RVs, mobile homes and powersports.
