About Portfolio

One of the nation’s leading reinsurance management companies dedicated to automotive dealers, Portfolio was founded in 1989.

Portfolio pioneered reinsurance for dealers. One of our signature accomplishments was securing two IRS TAMs (Technical Advice Memoranda) that acknowledged the legitimate business purpose of dealer reinsurance managed correctly and in accordance with US tax laws. These TAMs cleared the way for dealer reinsurance to be the important part the retail automotive business that it is now.

Over 1,350,000 vehicle service contracts, warranties, and ancillary products were sold by Portfolio dealers in 2016.
