Yardi Acquires Multifamily Insurance Group


SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Aug. 16, 2011 – Yardi announced today that it has acquired Multifamily Insurance Group (MIG), allowing the company to provide ResidentShield renters insurance products to its clients.

Yardi will now offer insurance coverage through ResidentShield for personal liability, personal property and living expenses for losses caused by fire, theft and other unexpected events.

“Our goal is to provide our clients with a full-business solution — including dynamic rental pricing, online resident services, utility billing and resident screening — using a single platform. That integrated offering now includes the reduced insurance risk for property owners and the peace of mind for renters that ResidentShield makes possible,” said Gordon Morrell, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Yardi.

MIG principals Trip Stanford and Mike Composono have joined Yardi’s newly formed insurance division.

“The acquisition combines two organizations whose focus is on providing the best possible experience for our clients and their residents. We believe our ResidentShield renters insurance platform is the most ‘user friendly’ system in the marketplace and that Yardi’s wide range of integrated solutions will enhance it,” said Stanford.

“Joining Yardi will enable us to offer our clients a fully integrated insurance solution, allowing users to easily manage the process from enrollment to compliance,” said Composono.
