2021 Is A Record-Breaking Year For Alliant National Title Insurance Company

Company closes out the year riding a wave of dramatic growth.

Longmont, Colo. – (January 25, 2022) – Alliant National Title Insurance Company, a unique title insurance underwriter that partners with independent agents to improve their competitive position, is proud to have closed out 2021 on a high note, having enjoyed record-breaking growth and strong financials during the past 12 months. 

Since its founding 16 years ago, Alliant National has risen to become the leading independent underwriter for the independent agent. The company has experienced significant year-over-year growth as agents increasingly respond to Alliant National’s promise to partner with them and never compete against them.

In 2021 alone, Alliant National brought in 107 new agents, increasing the total number to a company record 627.

Through the strength of these agent partnerships, Alliant National has been able to help more individuals achieve the American Dream and protect their real-estate investments.

As agents increasingly choose Alliant National, the company has leveraged its comprehensive knowledge of regional communities – growing its services and revenues as a result. Over the past five years, the number of policies issued by Alliant National has increased from 173,549 in 2016 to a company record of 287,509 in 2021 – amounting to a $101 million increase in revenue.

The ongoing development of Alliant National’s staff and geographic reach has played a strong role in achieving these results. Five years ago, Alliant National had a team of 66 and was licensed in 21 states. Today, its staff sits at just under 100 members and it has a presence in 30 states and the District of Columbia. New states added in recent years include Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

“As I reflect on the past year, I couldn’t be prouder of how our company has grown in terms of agents, footprint and profitability,” said David Sinclair, President and CEO of Alliant National. “I’m humbled by the number of agents who choose to put their trust in us, and I’m confident that our team is well positioned to help our agents achieve even greater success in 2022.”   

Alliant National distinguishes itself from competitors by combining strong underwriting capability with independent agents’ in-depth knowledge of local markets. The result is a nationwide network with deep roots in local communities, and a wealth of expertise that is flexible, nuanced and continuously growing.
