UVE’s primary insurance company subsidiaries (The “Insurance Entities”), Universal Property and Casualty Insurance Company (UPCIC) and American Platinum Property and Casualty Insurance Company (APPCIC), provide insurance for personal residential: homeowners, renters/tenants, condo unit owners, and other related coverages. In addition to the above coverages, APPCIC also writes to a much lesser degree, commercial residential multi-peril insurance.

UVE, through it’s primary insurance company subsidiaries are proven leaders, particularly under harsh conditions, taking a disciplined approach to writing policies. These units seek to consistently produce an underwriting profit, to maintain a conservative balance sheet for years in which UVE is not able to achieve an underwriting profit and to generate investment income.
UVE’s service company subsidiaries provide critical support to our primary insurance companies, generating operational efficiencies as well as inversely-correlated fee income.
