EMERYVILLE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/27/17 -- National Mortgage Insurance Corporation (National MI), the primary operating subsidiary of NMI Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: NMIH) was today named to Fortune Magazine's list of the "Best Workplaces in the Bay Area," coming in at #2 out of 25 small and medium-sized companies.

Fortune Magazine partners with Great Place to Work® to develop a comprehensive survey to identify the best workplaces in the Bay area.
