SEG Client, Multifamily Insurance Partners, Acquired by MRI Software

November 21, 2019 -- Software Equity Group (SEG) announces its client, Multifamily Insurance Partners, a leader in resident insurance programs for the US multifamily rental market, has been acquired by MRI Software, a global leader in real estate software solutions. SEG served as exclusive advisor to Multifamily Insurance Partners.

The acquisition will enable property owners and operators to close insurance gaps and minimize loss by implementing resident insurance compliance programs for apartment renters. The new offering, MRI Multifamily Insurance, further streamlines the leasing and onboarding process for property owners and operators and is available through MRI Living, the company’s end-to-end suite of residential solutions.

“Acquiring Multifamily Insurance Partners enhances MRI’s comprehensive residential offering,” says David Carner, Senior Vice President of Residential Solutions for MRI Software. “It enables MRI to make resident insurance available as part of a single, fluid leasing and onboarding process that protects both property owners and residents. Offering renters insurance via online portals gives MRI clients more options for creating a fully automated system that addresses the preferences and habits of modern renters; and a tightly integrated and intuitive insurance compliance program is crucial for property owners and managers to know their buildings are protected from any risk.”

The launch of MRI Multifamily Insurance gives property managers more choice when it comes to insurance. By giving clients the flexibility to either select MRI Software’s insurance compliance program or select a provider from its extensive Partner Connect program, MRI maintains its commitment to offering clients an open and connected ecosystem where they can choose the solution that works best for them.

Jim Sweeney, Multifamily Insurance Partners Chief Executive Officer, says: “Joining a PropTech industry leader in MRI helps Multifamily Insurance Partners reach new markets and leverage the latest in leasing and onboarding technology to provide the enhanced customer experience that property managers demand. Our clients will still benefit from our longstanding expertise and industry relationships, with the added benefit of MRI’s innovation, end-to-end offering and trusted position in the market.”
