Essent Business Update

The safety and well-being of Essent employees, clients and communities remains our primary concern. However, in this “uncertain” time we think it is incumbent upon all business leaders — ourselves included — to treat the situation with the highest level of priority and concern.

Consistent with advice from the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO) and local governments, Essent has enacted a mandatory work-from-home policy effective March 16, 2020.

We are well prepared to support our lenders during this challenging time and will continue to maintain our 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET hours.
