Applications of Title Insurance as a practical risk-management solution for real estate related transactions

First American is proud to be a sponsor of HKIB Management Luncheon Series "Applications of Title Insurance as a practical risk-management solution for real estate related transactions". Risk management is always an important topic in the banking industry. Bankers may have to make a choice between revenue and risk from time to time. Title Insurance is a practical tool that helps bankers to strike a balance between revenue and risk. It is a new concept in Hong Kong although it has long been established elsewhere including USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and Korea.

Fundamentally, title insurance is a legal indemnity insurance that provides cover against loss suffered by the insured (e.g. lender or owner) because of defects in title or registered encumbrances. It is a new solution in Hong Kong for use by bankers in property loan and securities transactions.

This event will cover:

  • Introduction to title insurance
  • Why is it important?
  • Application of title insurance in
    • Mortgage transaction
    • Commercial loan with real estate as collateral
    • Structured debt transaction with real estate as core element
