Our Boards

The Radian Group Combined Board is a joint meeting of several Boards with overlapping membership.

This Board meets at least five times per year and considers all aspects of strategy, performance and compliance for the Group as a whole.

There are a number of smaller companies within Radian Group, some of which currently provide services outside of the Group, or own housing, or employ staff. Each has its own Board whose members come from Radian’s Executive Team and from the Combined Board membership.
