The International Division of First American Financial Corporation is the leading provider of title insurance and a broad range of related property and financial services to both corporate clients and consumers around the world.

We have direct operations and a physical presence in 7 different countries covering Canada, Asia Pacific, and the UK & Europe. Additionally our division has effectively partnered with leading local companies in specific countries to offer our range of solutions to those markets. With a proven track record of being first to market, we have secured a strong market share position in each region.

Our range of products are designed to enhance a client’s risk profile and reduce operating costs through operational efficiencies. Seizing opportunities to streamline existing mortgage and conveyancing processes, primarily in British Commonwealth countries, title insurance combines with unique processing offerings to enhance the speed and efficiencies of established markets. Financial institutions around the world rely on us to insure their residential and commercial loan transactions (of all sizes) against a range of legal and property risks as well as providing innovative end to end processing solutions. The International Division’s global experience and expertise enables the insurance coverage to be customised to the individual risks associated with a particular jurisdiction or transaction as well as covering process improvement related risk – resulting in comprehensive tailored solutions and services.

We are continually cross leveraging the broad range of property related technologies, products and services developed within the group to add value across its international client base. The harmonisation of these services has revolutionised many of the local technologies and processes in these new markets. International scale and experience coupled with the off-shoring/outsourced processing capabilities and significant IT assets has entrenched the International Division as a core service provider in the property and finance sectors.

Because of its expertise in the industry, its financial strength, its existing international licences and its contacts around the world, our division will continue to expand on its position as a leader in business, by creating efficiency, the continuous innovation of new technologies, products and services, and through the development and growth of new international markets.
