As we move forward, we will continue to be prepared for a variety of economic scenarios in our business. We will continue to execute diligently against our plans to further build a resilient portfolio, strengthen our financial position, and maximize long-term shareholder value.
March 28, 2023
Dear Stockholder,
You are invited to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Enact Holdings, Inc. (“Enact”) to be held virtually at 11:00am Eastern Time on Friday, May 12, 2023.
The Annual Meeting will include voting on the matters set forth in the accompanying Notice of 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and Proxy Statement, and discussion and/or voting on any other business matters properly brought before the meeting.
Whether or not you plan to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, you can ensure that your shares are represented at the meeting by promptly submitting your proxy by telephone, Internet or by completing, signing, dating, and returning your proxy card or voting instruction form.
Continued strong performance
We are very pleased with Enact’s strong operating results in 2022, especially as the economy continued to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and the housing market absorbed rising interest rates. Enact delivered net income of $704 million (adjusted operating income of $708 million) and Return on Equity of 17.2% for the full year. We generated a large new insurance written book, and our insurance-in-force grew 10% year-over-year reaching an all-time high of $248 billion. Given the strength of the U.S. consumer, ever-to-date home price appreciation and our loss mitigation efforts, we delivered a loss ratio of negative 10%. Additionally, in the fourth quarter of 2022, we reported total equity of $4.1 billion, a consolidated risk to capital ratio of 12.8:1, and our PMIERs sufficiency was 165% or $2.05 billion above the Private Mortgage Insurer Eligibility Requirements (“PMIERs”) requirements.
Continued progress against our strategy
2022 was a complex and dynamic year for the housing and mortgage markets. In addition to the Federal Reserve’s actions and cascading impact on mortgage rates, we continued to operate in an environment with several factors in play, including but not limited to broader inflation for consumers, tight housing supply, the continued impact of the Great Resignation, and a hybrid workforce.
Following our IPO in September 2021, our flagship operating subsidiary received upgrades to its credit ratings from Fitch, Moody’s, and S&P. Enact received a second ratings upgrade from Moody’s in 2022, and 2023 is off to a good start with additional upgrades from S&P and Moody’s. Improved credit ratings make us a stronger counterparty for our customers and the Government Sponsored Entities (“GSEs”) and create greater opportunity for us to pursue new business opportunities. 2022 also saw the initiation of a quarterly dividend, the declaration and payment of our second special cash dividend (of $183 million, or $1.12 per common share), the announcement of our first share repurchase program, and entry into Enact’s first revolving credit facility.
Thank you to Enact employees
2022 has been another successful year for Enact, but it would not have been possible without the outstanding efforts of our employees. Through their agility, dedication, and willingness to support each other and provide excellent service to our customers, we were able to successfully navigate our first full year as a publicly traded company. Please join us in extending our sincerest thanks to each of them for their focus and commitment to getting people into homes and helping them stay there.
As we move forward, we continue to prepare for a variety of economic scenarios in our business. We will also continue to execute diligently against our plans to further build a resilient portfolio, strengthen our financial position and maximize long-term stockholder value. We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress and thank you for your investment in and support of Enact.

In accordance with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rule, we are furnishing this Proxy Statement and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (“2022 Annual Report”) to many of our stockholders solely over the Internet.

We encourage you to participate in the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. You may vote by telephone, through the Internet, or by mailing your completed and signed proxy card (or voting instruction form, if you hold your shares through a broker, bank, or other nominee). Each share of common stock issued and outstanding as of the record date is entitled to one vote on each matter to be voted upon at our 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Your vote is important and we encourage you to vote.

Enact Holdings, Inc. (the “Corporation,” “Enact,” “we,” “our” and “us”), through our operating subsidiaries, is a leading private mortgage insurance provider serving the United States housing finance market with a mission to help people buy a house and keep it their home. We operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, have long-tenured customer relationships with mortgage lenders, and are focused on underwriting excellence and prudent risk and capital management practices. We believe our operating and technological capabilities ensure a superior customer experience and drive new business volume at attractive risk-adjusted returns. For the full year ended December 31, 2022, we generated new insurance written (“NIW”) of $66 billion and our 2022 market share was approximately 16%. As previously stated, our mission is to help those who might otherwise not be able to achieve the dream of homeownership, and in 2022, we helped approximately 192,000 families achieve homeownership and create a path to building wealth.
Our 2022 strategic priorities were to 1) Maintain and prudently manage capital and credit risk; 2) Differentiate Enact from its competitors; and 3) Deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns.

Maintain and prudently manage capital and credit risk
Differentiate Enact from its competitors
Deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns

Invested to increase differentiation, drive efficiencies and enhance decision-making including improved underwriting efficiency and deepened understanding of layered risks.
• Served over 1,800 active customers including all of the top 20 mortgage originators.
• Activated or increased our new business share with 80% of our target customers since our IPO.
• Insurance in force rose to a record $248 billion on $66 billion of NIW.
Delivered a Return on Equity of 17.2% while new business pricing continued to yield attractive risk-adjusted returns and value for shareholders.

• Initiated a $75 million share repurchase program.

Enact Business Overview
Sustainability Initiatives: Our ESG Commitment
Enact has a longstanding history of good corporate citizenship. We are proud of the role we play in the communities we serve and the processes we have put in place to facilitate a sustainable business. We have long been focused on Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) issues. They have been a key component of our values and are also increasingly integrated within our business strategy to enhance long-term value creation for our stakeholders. As such, we formed a diverse, cross-functional team to drive our ESG efforts, with oversight from our CEO and CFO, along with the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors (“Board”). This team includes representatives from key functions across the organization, including investor relations, legal, human resources, risk, and operations. We bring a thoughtful and intentional approach to our ESG efforts, and we performed our first ESG-related materiality assessment this year to more formally determine the ESG issues most important to our stakeholders – including conversations with policyholders, consumers, employees and stockholders. We detailed this effort in our recently released ESG Roadmap which can be found on our website.
We provide a high-level summary of our ESG priorities below with more detailed information forthcoming in our inaugural ESG report. We have organized our ESG priorities into three “pillars” upon which we are building our ESG strategy, focusing on the areas most germane to our business:
https://cdn.kscope.io/43b3ec782a31556fab43a14186b977ea-act-20230328_g21.jpg
Strengthening Our Communities
Enact is deeply engaged with the communities it serves by enabling more families to achieve the dream of sustainable homeownership and create wealth, while also delivering on our commitments to employee volunteerism, philanthropy, and environmental responsibility. We believe our mission to help families buy—and stay in—homes has a positive impact on the communities we serve. This inspires us to go the extra mile. We look at the bigger picture, always considering our customers’ processes and their borrowers’ experiences. In this way, we seek to strengthen not just our customers’ business, but the neighborhoods where we live and which we serve.
Enabling Home Ownership
In 2022, our insurance products helped approximately 192,000 individuals and families either achieve the dream of homeownership or refinance a home. We also provided homeowners with access to Home Suite Home® coverage, a product designed to (1) help borrowers defray costs associated with owning a home, and (2) mitigate losses due to an unexpected financial event.
Our Homeowners Assistance group helped more than 19,600 individuals and families, particularly those financially impacted by COVID-19, to avoid foreclosure and remain in their homes. Further, we delegated all nationwide COVID-19 loss mitigation programs to servicers to enable assistance to families in need more quickly.
To assist first time home buyers, we provided First-Time Homebuyer materials to help lenders effectively educate these buyers on the purchase process and the demands of homeownership.
Volunteerism
Employee volunteerism is deeply embedded in our corporate culture. Enact provides every employee up to 40 hours of paid time off annually to volunteer in their community. Over half of our employees took advantage of volunteer time off in 2022, contributing thousands of hours of their time to build bookshelves, tables, and chairs for The Green Chair Project, raised funds hosting a 5K run for Note in the Pocket, packaged meals with Rise Against Hunger, and fulfilled our Adopt-a-Shoreline commitment at Jordan Lake. Additionally, our Executive Leadership Team took on a special local project with Rebuilding Together of the Triangle to replace the windows on a house, ensuring its senior resident could stay safely in their home.
Managing Our Carbon Footprint Responsibly
Enact’s Raleigh-based headquarters building is Gold LEED certified and uses 30% less water than buildings of similar size. Our building also includes occupancy sensors in all offices and conference rooms and lighting timers for all common areas that collectively help reduce energy usage by 25%, and incorporates a Building Management System to optimize our HVAC system and reduce our CO2 output. In 2022, we transitioned to 100% LED lighting. We also provide preferential parking to fuel efficient vehicles, along with complementary electric vehicle charging stations in our parking deck.

Driving Diversity and Inclusion & Supporting Our People
Enact recognizes that promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is not only the right thing to do, but also vital to our continued success and growth. We believe that by encouraging and incorporating varied perspectives at every level of the organization in a supportive and inclusive environment, we may create products and services that are innovative and responsive to the diverse needs of customers and prospective homeowners. In 2022, we were honored with awards recognizing our work in diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”), including the Residential DEI Leadership Award by the Mortgage Bankers of America. We foster and benefit from an inclusive culture and aid our employees by:
Management Focusing on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
This year, Enact transitioned from six employee resource groups to one Diversity & Inclusion Council (“D&I Council”), a significant change aimed at increasing collaboration and people power to ensure all voices and communities are represented, seen, heard, and celebrated. The D&I Council is employee-led and championed by our General Counsel, Evan Stolove. Their goal is to share the culture and highlight the talents and contributions of diverse populations within Enact to foster a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, while promoting education, continuous improvement, and a commitment to enhance the communities we serve.
In partnership with Genworth Financial, Inc. (“Genworth”), employees receive a weekly newsletter featuring relevant DEI topics and trainings. Employees also participated in 20 different discussions and/or learning experiences related to DEI through company-facilitated trainings. In the community, Enact sponsored and participated in two DEI conferences through the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.
Enact’s employee population is approximately 500 employees and is made up of 58% women, which has remained consistent over the last five years, and 25% people of color, which has grown from 18% over the last five years. In the last three years, Enact has significantly increased recruiting at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for our internship and early career programs. Enact has built relationships with eight HBCUs (and counting). As of the end of 2022, 20% of our executive leadership team are women, and 20% are ethnic or racial minorities. With respect to our Board, 27% of our members are women, and 27% are racially or ethnically diverse. In addition, 80% of our Board committee chairpersons are women; and 20% are ethnically diverse. We are focused on representing diverse perspectives at the executive and Board levels and recognize that we have work to do in this important area.
Developing the Next Generation of Diverse Industry Leaders
We believe it’s critical for our industry to reflect the diverse communities we serve. For the second consecutive year, Enact facilitated the Mortgage Insurance Development Program (“MIDP”) to educate students at HBCUs on mortgage finance roles. We’re proud to have created awareness of the mortgage industry for over 65 students. We also significantly increased recruiting at HBCUs for our internship and early career programs.
We became the first mortgage insurer to partner with the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, with a goal of continuing to learn about the challenges the LGBTQ+ community faces in housing, driving acceptance through education, and serving as a resource for the Alliance in their mission.
In 2022, we also joined the HBCU Partnership Challenge, created by Congresswoman Alma Adams in 2017, to promote success among HBCU students by connecting with diversity-minded companies and creating opportunities for those companies to invest in HBCUs.
Human Capital Management
We are committed to helping families and employees become more financially secure, self-reliant, and prepared for the future. We take a holistic approach to human capital management, including attracting and retaining talent with comprehensive benefits and compensation packages, providing professional development and learning opportunities, facilitating access to dedicated resources that foster an equitable and inclusive environment, and encouraging a sincere commitment to community service and involvement. Of our employees, 46% work in our Raleigh, North Carolina office and the remaining 54% are in the field, predominantly working in sales and underwriting. None of our employees are subject to collective bargaining agreements.

ENACT

Enact Business Overview
Some of our key areas of focus include:
Our compensation package, including salary, incentive bonus and long-term incentives, aligns employee and stockholder interests, as well as rewards our employees for serving all of our current and future customers.
In addition to a competitive compensation program, we offer our employees benefits such as life and health insurance, paid time off, paid parental leave, childcare subsidies, retirement savings plans, financial planning services, an Employee Assistance Program (“EAP”), and a broad fitness reimbursement program to support physical and mental health.
We offer a multitude of professional development and career enrichment courses, including in the areas of leadership, professional skills, and industry-specific matters, as well as a mentor program and an extensive training program for future senior leaders. We also offer tuition reimbursement benefits and student loan repayment options to aid career progression. We routinely assess talent, engage in deep succession planning at all levels of the organization, and provide feedback through a performance review process.
Our employee-led Diversity & Inclusion Council helps to build an inclusive culture through company-wide events, participation in our recruitment efforts and by educating our employees on the experiences and perspectives of others. We continue to focus on building a pipeline of talent to create more opportunities for workplace diversity and to support greater representation within Enact. In addition to our internally focused efforts, we have a number of employee-led externally focused DEI initiatives.
We champion civic engagement through paid volunteer time for employees, event sponsorship programs, employee-directed charitable gifts with a 100% company match, and through our commitment to environmental sustainability.
We empower employees to share their unique perspectives by promoting initiatives that increase access to our Senior Leadership Team and fostering open-door policies. We value the voice of our employees and, in 2022, we initiated a three-year process with a best-in class third party to measure and enhance employee engagement.
We celebrate our talent by showcasing employee achievements and expertise in industry publications, at events and conferences, and on social media. By amplifying their reach and ours, in 2022, 10 employees were recognized as award winners by external industry organizations, and Enact was recognized as an organization on three separate occasions.
Pandemic Response
In March 2022, we safely reopened our office and welcomed employees back on a hybrid work schedule.
We continued to provide unlimited time off for either illness (personal or family) or to address special circumstances arising from COVID-19 (childcare and virtual learning), and we provided a monthly stipend to employees for internet service.
Additionally, we provided access to COVID-19 medical resources, including free telemedicine visits and testing, and mental health and wellness webinars through our EAP.

https://cdn.kscope.io/43b3ec782a31556fab43a14186b977ea-act-20230328_g23.jpg
Focusing on Responsible Business Practices & Corporate Governance
Enact focuses on underwriting excellence, prudent risk and capital management, data privacy and cybersecurity, and regulatory compliance—all overseen by a diverse, experienced, and predominantly independent Board.
Sustainability Governance
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of Enact’s Board oversees ESG practices and periodically reviews our corporate social responsibility efforts. In 2022, we revised the Compensation Committee Charter to clarify that human capital, culture, and DEI initiatives fall under its scope. Oversight of our enterprise risk management practices has been delegated to the Board’s Risk Committee, while oversight of compliance with relevant legal and regulatory requirements has been delegated to the Board’s Risk and Audit Committees. These controls are foundational components of our sustainability platform.
See also the “Enact Corporate Governance” section later in this document.
The investment portfolios of our insurance subsidiaries are directed by the Enact Investment Committee, a management-level committee, with Genworth serving as the investment manager. The investments of our holding company, Enact Holdings, Inc., have been delegated to a third-party investment manager.
Our approach to managing investments is aligned with our fiduciary responsibility to strive to fulfill promises to our policyholders to be there when they need us most – a core tenet of our sustainability platform.
We have integrated ESG considerations into our overall investment strategy. Among other things, the Enact Investment Committee reviews ESG-related investment risks, governance, market developments and regulatory requirements to inform ultimate decisioning by the Enact Investment Committee. Enact holds more than $157 million of green, social, and sustainability-linked bonds.
Data Security
Enact utilizes a suite of information technology (“IT”) security controls that are fully functional whether work is performed within Enact facilities or from alternate locations, including from the homes of our employees. These IT security controls include, but are not limited to, “always on” Virtual Private Network (VPN) access, full-disk encryption, multi-factor authentication, screensaver timeouts, Data Loss Prevention (DLP), antivirus/anti-malware, personal firewalls, and routine patch management. These initiatives are augmented by monthly IT Security Awareness training.
For additional protection, we have instituted a Limited Access Protocol to Data, which ensures that only designated personnel with demonstrated business needs are able to access sensitive borrower information. As a further precaution, this access is closely monitored and reviewed at regular intervals. In addition, data is regularly deleted in compliance with our Data Retention Policies, to lessen the risk in the unlikely event of a data breach. Enact engages in annual cyber incident tabletop exercises to test our policies and procedures.
Our security controls are reviewed regularly both by internal and external parties, including commercial/ institutional customers, regulators, and penetration testers. In addition, our Risk Committee is responsible for overseeing cybersecurity risk and is regularly updated by Enact management.

ENACT

Enact Board of Directors
How We Select Our Directors
Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee recommends candidates for election to the Board, then the Board nominates the director candidates and makes recommendations to our stockholders. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider all stockholder recommendations for candidates for the Board, which should be sent to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, c/o Corporate Secretary, Enact Holdings, Inc., 8325 Six Forks Rd. Raleigh, NC 27615. Any stockholder recommendations for director are evaluated in the same manner as other candidates considered by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes all director nominees should meet certain qualifications and possess certain qualities, experience, or skills that would assist the Board in overseeing our operations and developing and pursuing its strategic objectives. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes each director nominee should at a minimum:
possess the highest personal and professional ethics, integrity, and values;
be committed to representing the long-term interests of all of our stockholders;
have an inquisitive and objective perspective, practical wisdom, and mature judgment;
bring a distinct skill set to the Board and the Corporation when viewed alone and in combination with other directors;
be willing and able to devote sufficient time to carrying out their duties and responsibilities effectively; and
be committed to serve on the Board for an extended period of time.
We endeavor to have a board representing diverse experience at policymaking levels in business and government, and in areas that are relevant to Enact’s business. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers diversity attributes when evaluating potential director nominees. The Board has adopted a policy relative to its commitment to Board diversity, which states the qualifications, attributes, and skills desired and is set forth in Section 3 of Enact’s Governance Principles, which is available on our investor relations website. Specifically, the Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee actively seek to achieve a diversity of occupational and personal backgrounds, viewpoints, education, and skills on the Board, including diversity with respect to demographics such as gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, and age. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers all potential candidates and determines whether potential candidates meet our qualifications, attributes, and skills for directors. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s review of potential candidates is multi-faceted and typically includes engagement of a director search firm, due diligence performed internally and externally, a review of a completed candidate questionnaire, and interviews with members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Board Chairperson. Genworth also has certain nomination rights as described in greater detail below under “—Certain Relationships and Transactions—Relationship with Genworth—Master Agreement—Board Rights
Board Composition
The number of authorized directors of our Corporation is influenced by the Amended and Restated Master Agreement executed with Genworth and Enact, dated March 20, 2023 (the “Master Agreement”) and fixed from time to time by a resolution adopted by our Board with Genworth’s consent. Currently, the size of our Board is set at eleven members. The Master Agreement also provides for certain director nomination rights as summarized below under “—Certain Relationships and Transactions—Relationship with Genworth—Master Agreement—Board Rights.” Each of Messrs. McInerney and Upton has been appointed to the Board in accordance with Genworth’s nomination rights under the Master Agreement.
Each director elected by the holders of our common stock at the 2023 Annual Meeting will serve until the 2024 Annual Meeting and until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified, or until the earlier of their resignation or removal in a manner provided for in the certificate of incorporation and our Bylaws, subject to the Master Agreement. The holders of our common stock do not have cumulative voting rights in the election of directors.
We believe our director nominees are a talented group of individuals with a variety of relevant qualifications, skill sets, and professional backgrounds, as reflected in their biographies beginning on page 15 and posted on our investor relations website. We believe our Board benefits significantly from this diversity of experience, as well as the racial/ethnic and gender diversity of its members.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT

Enact Board of Directors
Retirement and Resignation Policies
The Board does not believe that arbitrary term limits on directors’ service are appropriate, nor does it believe that directors should expect to be renominated annually until they reach the mandatory retirement age. Directors generally will not be nominated for re-election to the Board after their 76th birthday, although the Board may nominate candidates over 76 under special circumstances.
In addition, directors must be willing to devote sufficient time to carrying out their duties and responsibilities and should be committed to serve on the Board for an extended period of time. Directors must offer to tender their resignation in the event of any significant change in their personal circumstances, including a change in their principal job responsibilities, for consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will then consider the matter and recommend to the Board the appropriate course of action.
Director Independence
Although we qualify as a “controlled company” under the Nasdaq Listing Rules due to Genworth indirectly owning more than a majority of the voting power for the election of directors, our Board currently consists of eleven directors, eight of whom are independent (as defined under Nasdaq Listing Rules). For a director to be independent, the Board must determine that the director has no relationship with Enact, its subsidiaries and/or Genworth, which would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out director responsibilities. In making independence determinations, the Board considers all relevant facts and circumstances. The Board has determined that each of Mr. Addesso, Mr. Bless, Mr. Fisk, Ms. Hooda, Mr. Restrepo, Ms. Still, Mr. Thompson, and Ms. Waleski satisfies the Nasdaq’s independence requirements.
In addition to the independence requirements discussed above, members of the Audit Committee must satisfy additional heightened independence requirements established by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and Nasdaq. Specifically, they may not accept, directly or indirectly, consulting, advisory or other compensatory fee from Enact or any of its subsidiaries other than their directors’ compensation and they may not be affiliated with Enact or any of its subsidiaries under applicable Nasdaq and SEC Rules. The Board has determined that all of the current members of the Audit Committee (Ms. Hooda, Mr. Restrepo, and Ms. Waleski) satisfy the relevant SEC and Nasdaq independence requirements.
Further, in affirmatively determining the independence of any director who will serve on the Compensation Committee, the Board has determined that it will avail itself of the exceptions provided to controlled companies under SEC and Nasdaq independence standards, as the Compensation Committee is currently composed of a majority of independent members and is not completely independent. Specifically, Ms. Still and Mr. Thompson qualify as independent members of the Compensation Committee, and
Mr. McInerney is not independent due to his position as President and CEO of Genworth. Due to the Compensation Committee not being completely independent, all grants of equity awards are referred by the Compensation Committee to the Board for approval, except where authority has been delegated to our CEO for small off-cycle grants.
Overboarding
Our Governance Principles provide that directors who serve as chief executive officers or in equivalent positions for other public companies should not serve on more than two other boards of public companies in addition to the Enact Board and other directors should not serve on more than four other boards of public companies in addition to the Enact Board.

Governance Principles
Our Governance Principles are published on Enact’s investor relations website, as are our other corporate governance materials, including the charters adopted by the Board for each of our standing committees. To view these materials, go to www.enactmi.com, select “Investors” and then select “Corporate Governance.” The Board regularly reviews corporate governance developments, trends, and may modify these principles, charters, and governing documents as warranted. Any modifications will be reflected in the documents on Enact’s website.
Board Oversight of Strategy
The business of Enact is conducted by its employees and officers, under the direction of its CEO and the oversight of the Board, to enhance the long-term value of Enact to its stockholders. The Board is elected by the stockholders of the Corporation to oversee management and to protect the long-term interests of the stockholders. Specifically, the Board reviews, monitors and, where appropriate, approves fundamental financial and business strategies and major corporate actions. The Board reviews and evaluates Enact’s strategy at each regularly scheduled meeting and frequently engages with management regarding the competitive landscape, regulatory environment, operational challenges and opportunities, and strategic alternatives to ensure Enact pursues and makes progress on its strategic plan.
Board Leadership Structure
Our Board of Directors emphasizes active participation and leadership by all of its members. Our Board determines who to appoint as its chairperson and CEO based on the knowledge and experience of the people then serving on our Board, and chooses the individuals whom it believes best meets the needs of our Corporation and our stockholders at that time. Our Board has determined that having Rohit Gupta serve as our CEO and a director and Dominic Addesso serve as our independent Chairperson of the Board is the appropriate leadership structure for our Corporation at this time.
As more fully set forth in our Governance Principles, available on our website (to view, go to www.enactmi.com, select “Investors,” then select “Corporate Governance” and then select “Governance Principles”), the independent Board Chairperson’s responsibilities and authority include:
presiding at all meetings of the Board, stockholders, and non-management and independent directors;
facilitating efficient Board operations through regular engagement with standing committees of the Board and individual directors;
regularly communicating with the CEO to provide him or her with advice and counsel, serving as a liaison between the CEO and independent directors;
consulting on meeting agendas;
working with management to assure that meeting materials are fulfilling the needs of directors;
consulting on the meeting calendar and meeting schedules to assure there is sufficient time to discuss all agenda items;
periodically calling meetings of the independent directors, including at the request of such directors;
working with the CEO to respond to stockholder inquiries involving the Board; and
fulfilling other responsibilities as determined by the Board.

Meetings of Independent Directors
A substantial majority of our current directors are independent (as determined in accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules) and our independent directors meet regularly in executive sessions without management present, as provided in our Governance Principles. Mr. Gupta, our CEO, is currently the only employee of the Corporation who serves on our Board. In addition, Mr. McInerney and Mr. Upton, are the CEO and CFO, respectively, of Genworth, and are not considered independent according to Nasdaq Listing Rules and our Governance Principles. Our Governance Principles provide that the independent Board Chairperson, currently Mr. Addesso, will preside at the meetings of the independent directors. The independent Board Chairperson, may periodically call meetings of the independent directors, including at the request of the independent directors.
Meeting Attendance
In 2022, our Board of Directors, including committee meetings, held 35 meetings in the aggregate including Committees. Each of our director nominees who served in 2022 attended more than 75% of the aggregate of (1) the total number of meetings of the Board (held during the period for which they served as a director) and (2) the total number of meetings held by all committees of the Board on which they served (during the periods that they served). Eleven of our directors attended the 2022 Annual Stockholder Meeting, and as set forth in the Governance Principles, directors are expected to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
Board Responsibilities
Board Committees
The five standing committees of the Board are the Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, Independent Capital Committee, and Risk Committee. Our Board may also establish various other committees to assist it in carrying out its responsibilities.
The Board has established written charters for each of its five standing committees. Each Committee’s responsibilities are more fully set forth in its charter, which can be found in the corporate governance section of our website.

Compensation Committee
The principal purpose of the Compensation Committee is to carry out the Board’s overall responsibility relating to executive compensation, succession planning, and human capital management, including diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Compensation Committee’s Charter and the Corporation’s Governance Principles provide that each member of the Compensation Committee shall meet all applicable Nasdaq requirements for committee membership, except as required by the Master Agreement or any applicable exemptions, including with respect to “controlled companies” under Nasdaq rules. Furthermore, the Compensation Committee’s Charter states that at such time when the Corporation ceases to qualify as a “controlled company” under Nasdaq rules and following the applicable Nasdaq transition rules, members of the Compensation Committee shall also qualify as “non-employee directors” within the meaning of SEC Rule 16b-3. Until such time that all members of the Compensation Committee are “non-employee directors” within the meaning of SEC Rule 16b-3, all equity awards for officers and directors shall be approved by the full Board. Currently, the Corporation is taking advantage of the “controlled company” exemption and is, therefore, not required to have a fully independent Compensation Committee. Ms. Still and Mr. Thompson qualify as independent directors under the Nasdaq rules for purposes of serving on the Compensation Committee.

Enact Corporate Governance
Board Oversight of Risk
While our Board recognizes that risk management is primarily the responsibility of Enact’s management, the Board plays a critical role in the oversight of risk. As a mortgage insurance company, the very nature of our business involves the underwriting, management, and assumption of risks on behalf of our customers. The Board believes it is an important part of its responsibilities to oversee the Corporation’s overall risk assessment processes and management thereof.
Board
Our Board established the Risk Committee to be specifically responsible for overseeing Enact’s enterprise risk management policies and risk appetite.
The Board also utilizes its other committees to oversee specific risks and receives regular reports from the committees on the areas of risk for which they have oversight.

Risk Committee
Other Committees
The Risk Committee is responsible for overseeing Enact’s enterprise risk management policies and related risk profile, including but not limited to the following major risk exposures: credit risks, market risks, insurance risks, housing risks, operational risks, model risks, information technology/cybersecurity risks, and any other risk that may pose a material threat to the viability of Enact.
In connection with reviewing and overseeing the control, management and mitigation processes relating to Enact’s enterprise management policies and risk appetite, the Risk Committee recommends annually for Board approval: (i) enterprise risk management policies; (ii) the risk appetite of the Corporation; and (iii) delegations of authority regarding deviations from risk appetite limits. The Risk Committee oversees the implementation and maintenance of such policies, appetite, and delegations of authority deviating from risk appetite limits.
The majority of the members of the Risk Committee are independent, as discussed above, and Enact’s Chief Risk Officer and Chief Compliance Officer each also have a direct reporting obligation to the Risk Committee.
The Audit Committee has responsibility for oversight of risks associated with financial accounting and reporting, including the Corporation’s system of internal controls and relationship with its external independent auditor.
The Compensation Committee oversees the risks relating to compensation plans and programs, as well as management development and leadership succession.
Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for the oversight of some risks relating to ESG, director independence, and director qualifications.
The Independent Capital Committee is responsible for the oversight of risks related to debt or equity issuances, declaration of dividends, and capital contributions by the Corporation to any of its subsidiaries, other than EMICO.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
All of our directors, officers, and employees must act ethically at all times and in accordance with the policies comprising our code of business conduct and ethics set forth in our Code of Ethics (“Code of Ethics”). If an actual or potential conflict of interest arises for a director, the director shall promptly inform the Chairperson of the Board and the Corporation’s CEO. To view our Code of Ethics, go to www.enactmi.com, select “About Us”, select “Investors,” then select “Corporate Governance,” then select “Code of Ethics.” Section 13 of our Governance Principles, which are also available on our website, more fully addresses the application or our Code of Ethics by our directors.

Certain Relationships and Transactions
Our Board has stated in its Governance Principles, that the Corporation shall not consummate any transactions with related persons, unless such transactions are reviewed and approved in accordance with the Related Person Transactions Policy, which states that Enact will not enter into a transaction with a “related person” except in circumstances where there is a verifiable Enact business interest supporting the transaction and the transaction otherwise meets Enact’s standards that apply to similar transactions with unaffiliated entities or persons. Our policy is in writing and states that a “related person” means any of our executive officers, directors, nominees for director, any persons known by us to beneficially own in excess of 5% of any class of our voting securities, any person who is an immediate family member of the foregoing and any firm, corporation, or other entity in which any of the foregoing persons is an executive officer, general partner, principal or in a similar position or in which such person is deemed to have a 10% or greater beneficial ownership interest. Our policy applies to all transactions with “related persons,” including any proposed material changes to previously approved transactions, other than: (1) transactions available to all employees generally; and (2) transactions involving the payment of compensation or the entry into compensatory agreements or arrangements that are approved by the Board or the Compensation Committee or paid pursuant to an agreement, plan, or arrangement approved by the Board or the Compensation Committee. The Board has delegated to the Audit Committee the responsibility of establishing policies and procedures for the review and approval of transactions with related persons.
Relationship with Genworth
We were an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Genworth from 2004 until our IPO, during which time we have been part of Genworth’s consolidated business operations. Historically, Genworth and certain of its other subsidiaries have provided a variety of services to us, and we have provided a variety of services to Genworth and certain of its other subsidiaries and former subsidiaries. These arrangements are described below under “Other Related Party Transactions.”
Master Agreement
On September 15, 2021, we initially entered into the Master Agreement with Genworth, with subsequent amendments and restatements in January and March of 2023, that governs certain aspects of our continuing relationship with Genworth and includes certain customary stockholder rights of Genworth, as summarized immediately below.
Board Rights
Genworth has the right (but not the obligation) to designate the below number of persons as nominees to our Board of Directors:
six persons, so long as Genworth beneficially owns more than 50% of our outstanding common stock;
five persons, so long as Genworth beneficially owns 50% or less but 40% or more of our outstanding common stock;
four persons, so long as Genworth beneficially owns less than 40% but 30% or more of our outstanding common stock;
three persons, so long as Genworth beneficially owns less than 30% but 20% or more of our outstanding common stock; and
two persons, so long as Genworth beneficially owns less than 20% but 10% or more of our outstanding common stock.
The Master Agreement also provides that:
for so long as the Master Agreement shall remain in effect, in addition to the director nomination rights of Genworth described above, we and our Genworth have agreed to use best efforts to obtain the necessary approvals for the CEO to serve on the Board;
until Genworth ceases to beneficially own less than 20% of our outstanding common stock, except as required by applicable law or Nasdaq listing standards, we may not, without the prior written consent of Genworth, take any action to change the size of our Board;
for so long as Genworth beneficially owns more than 50% of our outstanding common stock, Genworth will also be entitled to designate at least two members to the Compensation Committee;
for so long as Genworth beneficially owns more than 30% of our outstanding common stock, Genworth shall be entitled to designate at least one member to each of the other board committees other than the Independent Capital Committee;
until Genworth ceases to beneficially own more than 30% of our outstanding common stock, except as required by applicable law or Nasdaq Listing Rules, we may not, without the prior written consent of Genworth, take any action to increase the size of any of our board committees;
in the event that the size of any committee of our Board is increased with Genworth’s prior written approval, Genworth will have the right to designate a proportional number of additional directors to serve on such committee (rounded up to the nearest whole number); and
for so long as Genworth beneficially owns 10% or more of our outstanding common stock, Genworth will also be entitled to designate one observer to attend any meetings of our Board.

Approval Rights
For so long as Genworth beneficially owns more than 50% of our outstanding common stock, we are required to obtain the prior written consent of Genworth to take any of the following actions, whether directly or indirectly through a subsidiary, subject to limited exceptions:
adopt any plan or proposal for a complete or partial liquidation, dissolution or winding up of us or any of our subsidiaries or commence any case, proceeding or action seeking relief under any existing or future laws relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, conservatorship or relief of debtors;
repurchase any of our stock, reduce or reorganize our capital or the capital of any of our subsidiaries;
issue new debt securities or incur indebtedness or guarantees;
issue our common stock or other equity securities or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for our common stock or other equity securities, including any issuances or grants pursuant to any stock plan;
enter into any merger, amalgamation, consolidation or similar transaction with a non-affiliate;
acquire assets, securities or businesses involving consideration of $50 million or more (or book value of $100 million or more with respect to acquisitions effected through reinsurance transactions), other than transactions involving assets invested in our consolidated general account and approved in accordance with our established policies and procedures to monitor invested assets;
dispose of assets, securities or businesses involving consideration of $50 million or more (or book value of $100 million or more with respect to dispositions effected through reinsurance transactions), other than transactions involving assets invested in our consolidated general account and approved in accordance with our established policies and procedures to monitor invested assets; and
adopt or implement any stockholder rights plan or similar takeover defense measure; and
dismiss or effect a change in our current independent registered public accounting firm or engage an independent registered public accounting firm for the Corporation that is different from the independent public accounting firm for Genworth.
For so long as Genworth beneficially owns at least 20% of our common stock, we are required to consult with Genworth with respect to the foregoing matters; however, Genworth will no longer have consent rights with respect to such matters other than as described above.
Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation
The Master Agreement contains non-competition and non-solicitation covenants that prohibit competition between us and our subsidiaries, on the one hand, and Genworth and its other subsidiaries, on the other hand, for employees and in certain businesses and geographic areas during the period beginning on the date of such agreement and ending on the date that is one year after the date on which Genworth ceases to beneficially own, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of our outstanding common stock (the “Restricted Period”).
The Master Agreement provides that we and our subsidiaries will not, during the Restricted Period, directly or indirectly, solicit employees or engage in any businesses of Genworth (other than the mortgage insurance business in the United States) (the “Genworth Covered Business”). The Master Agreement provides that Genworth and its other subsidiaries (for so long as they are subsidiaries of Genworth) will not, during the Restricted Period, directly or indirectly, engage in any business that directly or indirectly competes with our current businesses or our terminated, divested or discontinued businesses within the last two years which are or should be included as our historical operations (the “Corporation Covered Business”).
The foregoing non-competition and non-solicitation covenants are subject to exceptions in the case of certain transactions by us or Genworth and our respective subsidiaries that involve a de minimis business or another business activity so long as within two years after such a purchase or acquisition, we or Genworth or our respective subsidiaries sign a definitive agreement to dispose of the relevant portion of the business or securities of the acquired business or Corporation or, at the end of the two year period, the acquired business or Corporation complies with these non-competition and non-solicitation provisions.
Information Sharing
The Master Agreement also provides for other arrangements with respect to the mutual sharing of information between us and Genworth and its affiliates in order to comply with reporting, filing, audit, insurance regulatory or tax requirements, for use in judicial proceedings, and in order to comply with our respective obligations after the completion of the IPO. We and Genworth and its affiliates have also agreed to provide mutual access to historical business records.

Tax Matters
The Master Agreement provides that Genworth will compensate us for any reduction in the deferred tax attributes (or increase to deferred tax liabilities) of Enact Mortgage Holdings, LLC (“EMH”) and its subsidiaries (other than a reduction solely in the basis of stock of EMH) that may occur as a result of the application of the “unified loss rules” contained in Treas. Reg. Section 1.1502-36 to the IPO.
The Master Agreement also provides that, we will not take any action (or fail to take any action) that would cause us to no longer be a member of the entities filing a United States consolidated income tax return of which Genworth is the common parent (the “Genworth Consolidated Group”), or to no longer be subject to the Tax Allocation Agreement (described below), without Genworth’s prior written consent.
Registration Rights Agreement
On September 15, 2021, we entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with Genworth, pursuant to which Genworth is able to require us to file one or more registration statements with the SEC covering the public resale of registrable securities beneficially owned by Genworth or to effect shelf takedown offerings. We are required to bear the registration expenses, other than the underwriting discount and transfer taxes, associated with any registration of stock pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement. The Registration Rights Agreement includes customary indemnification provisions in favor of Genworth, any person who is or might be deemed a control person (within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act) and related parties against certain losses and liabilities (including reasonable costs of investigation and legal expenses) arising out of or based upon any filing or other disclosure made by us under the securities laws relating to any such registration. Genworth has piggyback registration rights, pursuant to which Genworth is entitled to participate in certain registrations or offerings we may undertake, subject to “cutback” in certain cases.
Shared Services Agreement
On August 4, 2021, we entered into a shared services agreement with Genworth (amended on February 24, 2023) (the “Shared Services Agreement”) in order to (i) provide to one another (and to certain of our respective affiliates or subsidiaries) administrative and support services and other assistance and (ii) ensure certain services received prior to the completion of the IPO will continue to be provided. The principal services that Genworth and certain of Genworth’s other subsidiaries provide to us include: information technology services and certain administrative services (such as finance, human resources, and employee benefit administration).
Service charges are generally calculated in a manner consistent with past practice, but are subject to annual caps on charges going forward as follows: $15 million in 2023; $12.5 million in 2024; and $10 million in 2025.
The Shared Services Agreement requires each party to perform services that meet a standard of care consistent with such party’s most recent past practices. Neither we nor Genworth or any of our respective affiliates or subsidiaries are or will be liable to each other in respect of the services either party provides, except in respect of a contractual claim for direct losses or where such liability arises from the provider party’s fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, or willful misconduct, subject to certain specified exceptions and limitations.
Services will continue to be provided under the Shared Services Agreement until the last service provided under the Agreement is terminated or expires, or until 12 months after the date Genworth no longer holds a controlling interest in the Corporation. Specific services provided under the Shared Services Agreement may be terminated by either party for convenience with at least one hundred eighty (180) days’ prior written notice provided to the other party in accordance with the terms of the Shared Services Agreement.
Intellectual Property Cross License Agreement
On September 15, 2021, we entered into an Intellectual Property Cross License Agreement with Genworth (the “IP Cross License Agreement”) in order to provide to one another and certain of each of our affiliates or subsidiaries a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid up, perpetual right and license of specified intellectual property (other than trademarks). The license is for specified purposes to assist each party in conducting its business following the IPO and it allows us, Genworth and certain of each of our affiliates or subsidiaries to: (i) enable employees, directors and officers to use and practice the licensed intellectual property rights for internal purposes, (ii) make, have made, use, sell, have sold, import and otherwise commercialize certain products and services and (iii) create certain improvements to such licensed intellectual property. Each party and its affiliates or subsidiaries have limitations on their ability to grant sublicenses. With respect to any third-party intellectual property licensed under the IP Cross License Agreement, we and Genworth have granted each other sublicenses that are subject to the terms and conditions of existing agreements between us and any applicable third party and Genworth and any applicable third party, and such sublicenses will not include rights in excess of those under such agreements.
The term of the IP Cross License Agreement is perpetual, but may be terminated upon mutual written agreement by the parties. In addition to the permitted assignments described in the Master Agreement, any party may assign the IP Cross License Agreement to any of its affiliates without any other party’s consent, but the assigning party will continue to be liable for the performance by the assignee.

Transitional Trademark License Agreement
On September 15, 2021, we entered into a Transitional Trademark License Agreement (the “Trademark Agreement”) with Genworth and EMH pursuant to which Genworth and EMH will grant us and our affiliates a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use certain specified trademark applications and registrations, names and brands (including trademarks, logos and domain names) of Genworth and EMH with limited rights to sublicense.
The Trademark Agreement, unless terminated earlier, is effective until two years following the date on which Genworth ceases to own more than 50% of our outstanding common stock; provided, that, with the consent of Genworth and EMH, we and our affiliates or subsidiaries, as applicable, may use certain licensed marks for a transition period of up to one year following such date to the extent required by applicable law.
The Trademark Agreement will automatically terminate with respect to us or our affiliates or subsidiaries, as applicable, upon notice to us by Genworth or EMH, in the event of (i) a merger or consolidation with an unrelated-third party, (ii) a sale of substantially all of the applicable party’s assets to an unrelated-third party or (iii) a change of control whereby an unrelated third party acquires 50% or more of the applicable party’s outstanding voting securities or the power to direct or cause the direction of management or policies.
The Trademark Agreement will also automatically terminate, without notice to us by Genworth or EMH, in the event that we or a permitted sublicensee makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, ceases operations or is liquidated or dissolved. The Trademark Agreement may also be terminated by Genworth or EMH if there is a material breach by us or a permitted sublicense, as applicable, that is uncured.
Investment Management Agreements
In 2022, the Enact Board delegated the oversight for Enact’s investments to newly formed, management-level committees. On May 3, 2022, the Enact subsidiaries, EMICO and Enact Mortgage Insurance Corporation of North Carolina, entered into investment management agreements with Genworth for the management of their investment portfolios. Under the terms of these investment management agreements, Enact is charged an investment management fee by Genworth. The total investment expenses paid to Genworth were $5.5 million and $5.2 million for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Separately, Enact Holdings, Inc. entered into an investment management agreement for its investments with an independent third party.
Other Related Person Transactions
Tax Allocation Agreement
On May 14, 2021, we entered into a Tax Allocation Agreement with Genworth. We currently join in the filing of a United States consolidated income tax return with the Genworth Consolidated Group and are party to a Tax Allocation Agreement between Genworth and certain of Genworth’s subsidiaries, which allocates the consolidated tax liability of the Genworth Consolidated Group among its members, including us, in addition to certain other matters. The tax allocation methodology is based on the separate return liabilities with offsets for losses and credits utilized to reduce the current consolidated tax liability of Genworth as allowed by applicable law and regulation. We settle intercompany tax balances quarterly after the filing of Genworth’s federal consolidated United States corporation income tax return.
If the taxable income, special deductions, or credits reported in the Genworth Consolidated Group income tax return for any taxable year or periods is changed or otherwise adjusted, payments required to be made under the Tax Allocation Agreement may be recalculated, and we could be required to pay material amounts to Genworth. However, Genworth will be responsible for any taxes for which we are jointly and severally liable solely by reason of filing a combined, consolidated or unitary return with Genworth.
In the event that Genworth were to hold less than 80% of our common stock by either voting power or value, we would cease to be a member of the Genworth Consolidated Group and may be required to make a payment to Genworth in respect of tax benefits for which we received credit under the Tax Allocation Agreement, but which had not been utilized by the Genworth Consolidated Group at such time. These tax benefits would be available to reduce our tax liabilities in periods after we leave the Genworth Consolidated Group, subject to any applicable limitation that may apply with respect to such period or tax benefit.
Compensation and Other Arrangements Concerning Employees
Prior to the completion of the IPO, our employees participated in certain benefit plans administered by Genworth and certain stock-based compensation plans that utilize Genworth’s common stock. Since the IPO, Enact has transitioned to its own compensation plans, including granting equity awards that relate to its own common stock, but these plans and other employee benefits are still administered by Genworth. See “Compensation Discussion and Analysis.”

Compensation of Directors
The Compensation Committee has the responsibility for annually reviewing and recommending to the Board compensation and benefits for “independent directors.” Independent directors are those directors who are not executive officers of Enact, Genworth, or their affiliates. Accordingly, all directors, other than Mr. Gupta, Mr. McInerney, Mr. Sheehan (during his period of service), and Mr. Upton, are independent directors. Mr. Gupta, Mr. McInerney, and Mr. Upton do not receive any additional compensation for serving as a director. Mr. Sheehan resigned from the Board and Mr. Upton was appointed to the Board on March 1, 2023.
The components of our independent directors’ compensation were reviewed by the Compensation Committee in 2022. During the review, a change to the timing of the payment of deferred stock units (“DSUs”), from quarterly to annual for the Corporation’s non-management, to align with typical market practice of an annual equity grant was recommended and approved. Compensation amounts were not increased from levels set in connection with our IPO in 2021.
In 2022, the Corporation’s compensation components for non-management directors were as follows:
CashDSUsTotal
Annual Retainer
$100,000 $150,000 $250,000 
Annual Additional Retainer for Board Chairperson$80,000 $120,000 $200,000 
Annual Additional Retainer for Lead Director$20,000 
Annual Additional Retainer for Committee Chairpersons
Audit$25,000 
Compensation$20,000 
Other Committees$15,000 
Annual Retainer. Each independent director is paid an annual retainer of $250,000 in quarterly installments, following the end of each quarter of service. Of this amount, $100,000 is paid in cash and $150,000 is paid in DSUs granted as an annual award under our 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”).
Annual Additional Retainer for Board Chairperson. As additional compensation for service as Board Chairperson, the Board Chairperson receives a $200,000 annual retainer in addition to the regular annual retainer. Such cash amount, $80,000, is paid in quarterly installments, following the end of each quarter of service. The DSU amount, $120,000, is paid as an annual award.
Additional Retainer for Lead Director. If a Lead Director is appointed in the absence of an independent Chairperson, the Lead Director would receive an annual cash retainer of $20,000 payable in quarterly installments, as additional compensation for service as Lead Director. Currently Enact does not maintain a Lead Director.
Additional Retainer for Committee Chairpersons. As additional compensation for service as chairperson of a committee, each chairperson will receive an additional annual cash retainer payable in quarterly installments, as follows: Audit Committee Chairperson, $25,000; Compensation Committee Chairperson, $20,000; and each other standing committee chairperson, $15,000.
Deferred Stock Units. The number of DSUs granted is determined by dividing the DSU target award value above by the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant. Each DSU represents the right to receive one share of our common stock in the future, following the recipient’s separation from service as a director. DSUs accumulate regular quarterly dividends, if any, which are reinvested in additional DSUs. The DSUs will be settled in shares of common stock on a one-for-one basis one year after the director leaves the Board in a single installment or immediately upon the death of an independent director.
Reimbursement of Certain Expenses. Directors are also reimbursed for reasonable travel and other Board-related expenses, including expenses to attend Board and committee meetings, other business-related events, and director education seminars, in accordance with policies approved from time to time.

Advisory Vote to Approve Named Executive Officer Compensation
Pursuant to Section 14A of the Exchange Act, we are required to provide our stockholders with the opportunity to vote to approve, on an advisory, non-binding basis, the compensation of our NEOs as disclosed in this Proxy Statement in accordance with the SEC’s rules.
As described in detail in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis section below, our executive compensation programs are designed to attract, retain, and motivate executives of superior ability who are dedicated to the long-term interests of our stockholders. Under these programs, our NEOs are rewarded for the achievement of specific annual, long-term, and strategic goals, corporate goals, and the realization of increased stockholder value. Highlights of our executive compensation program, as described in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis section, include:
compensation programs that are performance-based and align executive officer incentives with stockholder interests over multiple timeframes;
annual incentives that are earned based on performance measured against specific financial and strategic objectives for an executive’s area of responsibility, together with a qualitative assessment of performance;
at-risk pay and compensation design that reflect an executive officer’s impact on the Corporation’s performance over time; and
appropriate risk management practices, including a clawback policy, anti-hedging policy, anti-pledging policy, stock ownership requirements, net share retention ratio, and net hold requirements with respect to equity grants.
We are asking our stockholders to indicate their support for our NEO compensation as described in this Proxy Statement. This proposal, commonly known as a “say-on-pay” proposal, gives our stockholders the opportunity to express their views on our NEOs’ compensation. This vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather the overall compensation of our NEOs and the philosophy, policies, and practices described in this Proxy Statement. Accordingly, we ask our stockholders to vote FOR the approval, on an advisory basis, of the compensation of our NEOs, as disclosed in this Proxy Statement, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis section, the 2022 Summary Compensation Table, and the other related tables and narrative discussion.
Though the say-on-pay vote is advisory, and therefore not binding, our Board of Directors and the Compensation Committee value the opinions of our stockholders, and the Compensation Committee will consider the voting results when making future decisions regarding executive compensation as it deems appropriate. In 2022, our stockholders cast an advisory vote recommending that future say-on-pay votes be held every year. We expect to hold our next say-on-pay vote following the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2024.

2022 Corporation Performance
In 2022, we aligned NEO incentives with the achievement of financial and strategic initiatives designed to improve our operating performance. We met or exceeded key operational, strategic, and financial objectives for 2022 primarily due to our strong execution and performance of our business.
Our operating performance in 2022 has directly impacted our NEOs’ compensation, as follows:
Key Annual Financial Objectives
Key Annual Strategic Objectives
The business exceeded goals for adjusted operating income and adjusted operating return on equity (“ROE”)
The business exceeded goals for operational excellence, risk & pricing management, and capital & liquidity

Long-Term Financial Objectives
Equity awards granted to our NEOs in 2022 include a 50% portion that will vest based on the Corporation’s Book Value per Share Growth over a three-year performance period from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024.
Compensation Philosophy
Our objectives in compensating executive officers are to attract, retain, and motivate executives of superior ability who are dedicated to the long-term interests of our stockholders.
The following principles guide our compensation program design and individual compensation decisions. Additionally, we have highlighted below key elements of our compensation programs or policies for NEOs that illustrate how we support these principles in practice:
Our Guiding Principles
Examples of Programs or Policies That Support Our Principles
Compensation should be primarily performance-based and align executive officer incentives with stockholder interests across multiple timeframes
Annual cash incentives (short-term performance-based awards)
The 2022 annual grants of long-term incentives, which include equity-based Performance Stock Units (“PSUs”) (vesting based on the Corporation’s Book Value per Share growth over a three-year performance period) and Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) (rewards long-term stock appreciation with an emphasis on retention)
Prior to the 2021 IPO, certain executive officers received long-term incentive grants under Genworth’s long-term incentive program. These grants remain outstanding and continue to vest in accordance with their terms
Total compensation opportunities should be competitive within the relevant marketplace
Our compensation benchmarking approach, as described below, and annual review of the composition of our peer group
We generally target our pay to the median of the market, utilizing a combination of benchmark data, importance of the role to the Corporation and individual skill sets in setting compensation
Our incentive compensation should reward financial and operational performance and allow for qualitative assessment
In determining annual incentive awards, the Compensation Committee measures performance against specific financial objectives for the executive’s area of responsibility, together with a qualitative assessment of operational performance and other results
We utilize long-term equity grants to reward achievement of specific longer-term Corporation objectives
Plan designs and incentives should support appropriate risk management practices
We maintain clawback, anti-hedging, and anti-pledging policies applicable to all executive officers

Compensation Decision-Making Process
How We Determine Program Design
Role of the Compensation Committee
The Compensation Committee undertakes a collaborative process with management when determining executive compensation programs and performance. The Compensation Committee performs an annual review process of CEO performance and compensation decisions, with input from the Board. The Compensation Committee regularly meets in executive session with and without management present and retains the final authority to approve all compensation policies, programs, and amounts paid to our NEOs, excluding equity awards that are approved by our full Board.
Role of Management
Our CEO and Senior Vice President—Human Resources attend meetings of the Compensation Committee to provide analysis, details, and recommendations regarding the Corporation’s executive compensation programs and plan designs. During full Board meetings, members of the Compensation Committee also receive business performance and strategy updates from other members of management, which the Compensation Committee uses to align with compensation incentive goals. Our CEO provides the Compensation Committee with performance assessments and compensation recommendations for each of the NEOs (other than himself). The Compensation Committee, typically in the first quarter of each year, determines and approves annual incentive award payouts for the prior year, any adjustments to base salary, target annual incentives for the upcoming year, and awards of long-term incentives to executive officers to recommend to the Board for approval. For more information on the compensation decisions made for 2022, see the Key Compensation Program Elements section below.
Role of Compensation Consultants
In 2022, the Compensation Committee retained FW Cook as its independent compensation consultant. The independent compensation consultant regularly attends Compensation Committee meetings and meets with the Compensation Committee in executive session without management present. The Compensation Committee occasionally requests special studies, assessments of market trends and education regarding changing laws and regulations from the compensation consultant to assist the Compensation Committee in its decision-making processes for the CEO and other executive officers. The compensation consultant provides the Compensation Committee with advice, but does not determine the amount or form of compensation for our NEOs. In 2022, the Compensation Committee assessed the independence of the compensation consultant pursuant to SEC rules and concluded that no conflict of interest exists with respect to their engagement.
Benchmarking
We generally evaluate the market competitiveness of our programs as an input into the process of designing plans and setting target compensation levels for NEOs. We review each component of compensation for our NEOs separately and in the aggregate, and we also consider the internal responsibilities of the NEOs to help determine appropriate pay levels. With respect to individual NEOs, we compare the total target compensation opportunities for our NEOs to the target opportunities for similar positions at comparable companies. These benchmarks are a gauge for evaluating market competitiveness, but they are not given greater weight than other key factors when making compensation decisions. For example, individual NEOs may have higher or lower target compensation levels compared to market medians based on level of responsibility, individual experience and skills, performance trends, competitive dynamics, retention needs, and internal equity considerations.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT

Executive Compensation
For 2022, pay decisions were made by the Compensation Committee and guided by publicly available information for the below list of 14 peer companies (the “Peer Group”), as well as information available through market compensation surveys to provide a broad perspective of market practice. Additionally, the Compensation Committee will from time to time place more emphasis on reviewing the compensation programs of the four other mortgage insurance companies (Essent Group LTD, MGIC Investment Corporation, NMI Holdings Inc., and Radian Group Inc) in the Peer Group. due to their close correlation with our business makeup and strategy. The companies included in market surveys are not individually identifiable for a particular executive
position (and therefore we are not benchmarking against any particular company within the survey), and also they may change from year-to-year based on voluntary participation in the market surveys used, mergers and divestitures, or changes in corporate structure.
To the extent we make changes to our business portfolio, or as peer companies adjust their own business lines or distribution channels, the Compensation Committee will consider adding peers, or removing peers that no longer have revenue sources and talent demands similar to ours. The Compensation Committee removed Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd., State Auto Financial Corporation, Inc., and White Mountains Insurance Group. Ltd. from the Peer Group for 2021 to more closely correlate the Peer Group to the business of the Corporation.
The Peer Group used when considering 2022 compensation actions was composed of the following companies:
Arch Capital Group Ltd.
Assured Guaranty Ltd.
Axos Financial, Inc.
Employers Holdings, Inc.
Essent Group Ltd
First American Financial Corporation.
Flagstar Bancorp, Inc.
Guild Holdings Company
MGIC Investment Corporation
Mr. Cooper Group, Inc.
NMI Holdings, Inc.
Radian Group, Inc.
RLI Corp.
Walker & Dunlap, Inc.
Consideration of 2022 Say-on-Pay Vote
Annual advisory votes to approve named executive officer compensation serve as a tool to help the Compensation Committee evaluate the alignment of our executive compensation programs with the interest of the Corporation and our stockholders. Due to the strong support of our stockholders on our 2022 say-on-pay vote, which received approval from approximately 98% of the votes cast, we did not make any changes to our 2022 compensation program specifically in response to this vote.
Key Compensation Program Elements
Our 2022 annual compensation program for named executive officers consists of the following key elements: base salary, annual incentive, and annual long-term incentive grants (including PSUs and RSUs).
Base Salary
Base salaries are generally intended to reflect the scope of an executive officer’s responsibilities and experience, reward sustained performance over time, and be competitive with the market. In February 2022, the Compensation Committee undertook its annual review of executive officer base salaries, in conjunction with benchmarking data and advice provided by its compensation consultant. Mr. Gupta and Mr. Stolove received a base salary increase to maintain market competitiveness. For the other executive officers, their base salaries were considered competitive for their roles within the marketplace and remained unchanged from 2021 levels.

Annual Incentive
Our annual incentive program rewards performance against financial objectives, together with a qualitative assessment of our achievement of operational objectives, and other accomplishments toward strategic priorities, which are not necessarily reflected in annual financial results.

ENACT

Executive Compensation
Our annual incentive program, which is closely aligned with our annual business operating plan for 2022, was approved by our Compensation Committee. Generally, the Compensation Committee sets performance targets for the annual incentive program that align with achievement of the business operating plan, with above target payouts for exceeding the plan and below target or no payouts for not meeting the plan. When setting the annual business operating plan, many factors and assumptions are considered, such as the competitive landscape, the global economic environment, market trends, interest rates, and regulatory considerations. As a result, performance targets within our annual incentive plan may not increase on a yearly basis, and they may even be set below the previous year’s targets or actual results.
For 2022, each NEO had an annual incentive target, expressed as a percentage of base salary. After review, the Compensation Committee approved an annual incentive target increase from 150% to 160% for Mr. Gupta based on peer group data and his role on the senior leadership team. For the other executive officers, their annual incentive targets were considered competitive for their roles within the marketplace and remained unchanged from 2021 levels. The 2022 target annual incentive opportunities for our named executive officers ranged from 55% to 160% of base salary, and payout opportunities for 2022 ranged from zero to 200% of their individual target amount. Individual annual incentive targets are reported in the 2022 Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table.
Final awards under our annual incentive program for 2022 were determined based on a scorecard approach that considered the Corporation’s achievement of the following financial and strategic objectives as well as each NEO’s individual performance.

In February of 2023, our Compensation Committee reviewed overall performance results against the applicable objectives in the scorecard and also considered the performance of each NEO in their respective area of responsibility in determining the actual 2022 annual incentive payouts. Enact delivered strong performance in what remained a volatile and uncertain market throughout the year. Execution successes include: (i) the strong underlying credit quality of our business portfolio; and (ii) maintaining strong capital positions in our business to ensure their resilience across a wide range of potential scenarios.
Amounts paid for 2022 are reported under the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation—Annual Incentive column of the 2022 Summary Compensation Table.

Executive Compensation
Long-Term Incentive Award Design
Enact’s long-term incentive awards to executive officers include PSUs and RSUs. Taken together, we believe our annual long-term incentive grants provide our NEOs with effective retention value and appropriate incentives to achieve long-term company performance objectives, while aligning our executive officer compensation program with the long-term interests of our stockholders.
To determine annual long-term equity grant awards for the NEOs, the Compensation Committee works with its independent compensation consultant. In addition, when determining long-term equity award values for each executive officer (including our CEO), the Compensation Committee considers competitive pay levels, alignment of total pay at risk with the individual’s ability to impact long-term company performance, the individual’s sustained performance over time, and retention needs.
2022 Enact Long-Term Incentives
In February 2022, during the annual review of executive officer pay, in conjunction with benchmarking data and advice provided by its compensation consultant, the Committee approved increases to all NEO annual long-term incentive intended values. The increase brings 2022 target annual long-term incentive intended values for our named executive officers to an average of 44% of target compensation and is a reflection of the continued progression of pay alignment with the long-term interests of our stockholders for a public company officer.
The intended value of the annual long-term incentive awards made in 2022 to our NEOs were as follows:
Name
Approximate Compensation Value Intended to be Delivered ($)
# of RSUs Awarded
# of PSUs Awarded
Mr. Gupta4,000,000 92,679 92,679 
Mr. Mitchell850,000 19,695 19,695 
Mr. Stolove400,000 9,268 9,268 
Mr. Derstine325,000 7,531 7,531 
Mr. Gould325,000 7,531 7,531 
For 2022, the Board approved annual grants under the Plan in the form of 50% PSUs and 50% RSUs for our NEOs. Taken together, we believe our annual long-term incentive grants provide our named executive officers with effective retention value and appropriate incentives to achieve long-term company performance objectives, while aligning our executive compensation program with the long-term interest of our stockholders. The 2022 PSU design continues to have a total of 0 to 200% of the target level of PSUs granted eligible to vest based on the Corporation’s Book Value per Share Growth over a three-year performance period from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024.
Additional Information Regarding Awards of Restricted Stock Units
RSUs vest 33% per year, beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date.
Additional Information Regarding Awards of Performance Stock
Payout for performance is interpolated on a straight-line basis between each of threshold and target payouts and between target and maximum payouts levels.
No payout is earned for performance below threshold level for the performance period.
In evaluating performance, the Compensation Committee shall exclude the impact, if any, on reported financial results of any of the following events that occur during the performance period: a) acquisitions and divestitures, b) stockholder dividends or common stock repurchases and c) changes in accounting principles or other laws or provisions.
Notwithstanding the level of achievement of the performance goals, the Compensation Committee may exercise negative discretion to pay out a lesser amount, or no amount at all, based on such considerations as the Compensation Committee deems appropriate.
Additional Information Regarding Long-Term Incentive Awards
Outstanding long-term incentive awards are generally forfeited upon the NEO’s termination of employment with the Corporation prior to vesting, except for limited instances as described in the Executive Compensation—Potential Payments upon Termination or Change of Control section below.

Enact IPO Grants
Upon completion of the 2021 IPO, and to immediately build ownership interest and financial alignment with our stockholders, each NEO was awarded an IPO grant in the form of RSUs, which will vest and convert to shares of Enact stock on the third anniversary of the IPO, subject to continued employment through such vesting date. If the Corporation pays dividends on its common stock, dividend equivalents accrue with respect to the RSUs and will be reinvested in additional RSUs at the time that the corresponding RSUs vest. Details about these IPO grants can be found in the 2021 Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table.
Genworth Awards
As a reminder, due to our IPO in 2021, our NEOs maintain outstanding Genworth long-term incentives, details of which are outlined below.
Genworth Performance Stock Units
Genworth PSUs granted to our CEO in 2021 vest based on the achievement of performance goals relating to certain financial metrics that are key drivers of Genworth’s multi-year business operating plan, a significant component of which is Enact’s adjusted operating income, measured over one cumulative three-year performance period ending on December 31, 2023. No payout is earned for performance below the threshold performance level for a given performance measurement period, while performance at the threshold performance level would result in 50% of the target PSUs vesting, and performance at the maximum performance level would result in 200% of the target PSUs vesting. With the exception of certain qualifying termination events, Genworth PSUs are generally subject to forfeiture upon termination of employment prior to vesting, as described in greater detail below under “Potential Payments upon Termination or Change of Control.” Please see the “Stock Awards” column in the 2022 Summary Compensation Table for the grant date fair value of the Genworth PSUs granted to our CEO in 2021.
Genworth Restricted Stock Units
Genworth RSUs granted to our CEO in 2021 vest in three equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date, subject to his continued employment through the applicable vesting date. With the exception of certain qualifying termination events, Genworth RSUs are generally forfeited upon a termination of employment prior to vesting, as described in greater detail below under “Potential Payment upon Termination or Change of Control.” Please see the “Stock Awards” column in the 2022 Summary Compensation Table for the grant date fair value of the Genworth RSUs granted to our CEO in 2021.
Genworth Deferred Cash Awards
Genworth deferred cash (“Deferred Cash”) awards were previously granted to the NEOs other than our CEO in 2021 and generally vest in three equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date, subject to the participant’s continued employment through the applicable vesting date. Except for certain qualifying termination events, Genworth Deferred Cash awards are generally forfeited upon a termination of employment prior to vesting, as described in greater detail below under “Potential Payment upon Termination or Change of Control.” Please see the “Bonus” column in the 2022 Summary Compensation Table for the amount of the payouts in 2022 of Genworth Deferred Cash awards granted in prior years that became vested in 2022 based on continued service through the applicable vesting date.
Our Compensation Committee intends to utilize equity-based vehicles for all NEOs in future years to ensure all executive officers of Enact receive compensation directly linked to stockholder return.
Other Benefit Programs
Severance Benefits
In February 2022, our Compensation Committee adopted the Enact Holdings, Inc. Senior Executive Severance Plan (the “Enact Executive Severance Plan”) and the Enact Holdings, Inc. Change of Control Severance Plan (the “Enact CofC Severance Plan”). Each of our NEOs is eligible to participate in each of the plans.

ENACT

Executive Compensation
Under the Enact Executive Severance Plan, each executive is eligible to receive the following payments and benefits in the event of a termination by the Corporation without “cause” or a resignation by the officer with “good reason” (each as defined in the Enact Executive Severance Plan):
a lump sum cash payment equal to 1.0 times (or 2.0 times for Mr. Gupta) the sum of the executive’s annual base salary and target annual bonus amount;
a pro-rata annual bonus for the year of termination based on actual results for the year;
a lump sum cash payment equal to 12 months’ COBRA premiums for continued medical, dental, vision and prescription drug benefits for the executive and his eligible dependents; and
full and immediate vesting of any unvested nonqualified pension, retirement or deferred compensation plan benefits.
Under the Enact CofC Severance Plan, each executive is eligible to receive similar payments and benefits in the event of a termination by the Corporation without “cause” or a resignation by the officer with “good reason” (each as defined in the Enact CofC Severance Plan), in either case that occurs within 24 months following a Change of Control (as defined in the Enact CofC Severance Plan), except that (1) the lump sum cash payment multiplier increases to 2.0 for all executives, other than Mr. Gupta, and to 2.5 for Mr. Gupta; (2) the pro-rata annual bonus is calculated based on actual results if such can be assessed at the time of termination, or otherwise based on target performance; and (3) the lump sum for COBRA premiums increases from 12 to 18 months.
Benefits under each of the plans is conditioned upon the executive’s execution of a release of claims that includes customary confidentiality, non-disparagement, non-competition and non-solicitation provisions.
The potential payments and benefits upon a termination of employment without “cause” or by the executive for “good reason” for each of our NEOs are described more fully in the Executive Compensation—Potential Payments upon Termination or Change of Control section below.
Retirement Benefits
Retirement benefits also fulfill an important role within our overall executive compensation program because they provide a competitive financial security component that supports attraction and retention of talent. Our employees currently participate in Genworth’s retirement programs. Genworth’s Retirement and Savings Plan has two features: the “401(k) Savings Feature,” in which participants can defer savings on a pre-tax basis and receive Corporation matching contributions, subject to certain Internal Revenue Service limits, and a “Retirement Account Feature,” which includes only annual Corporation contributions. In addition, Genworth offers the following non-qualified retirement plans:
Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (the “SERP”), which is a defined benefit plan that was closed to new participants after December 31, 2009, and for which benefit accruals were frozen as of December 31, 2020; and
Retirement and Savings Restoration Plan (the “Restoration Plan”), which is a defined contribution plan.
It is important to us to keep our benefit design and costs competitive with our peers so that we can continue to attract and retain talent while managing our expenses. Each of the above non-qualified retirement plans is described in more detail in the Executive Compensation—Pension Benefits and Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation sections below.
Other Benefits and Perquisites
The Compensation Committee regularly reviews the benefits and perquisites provided to our NEOs to ensure that our programs align with our overall principles of providing competitive compensation and benefits that maximize the interests of our stockholders. We provide executive officers with an individually-owned universal life insurance policy (the “Leadership Life Program”), maintained by Genworth and a limited number of perquisites intended to keep executive officers healthy and focused on segment business with minimal distraction. The perquisites provided to executive officers include the opportunity to receive financial counseling and annual physical examinations. The CEO is also eligible for an enhanced company-owned life insurance program (the “Executive Life Program”) offered by Genworth. The costs of certain perquisites provided to our NEOs are included in the Summary Compensation Table below.
We also provide certain benefits in the event of death, total disability or change of control. Amounts payable to NEOs are described in more detail in the Executive Compensation—Potential Payments upon Termination or Change of Control section below.

Executive Compensation
Other Key Compensation Governance Policies
In addition to our compensation programs described above, the Corporation maintains the following policies and practices intended to strengthen the overall long-term stockholder alignment and governance of our compensation programs.
Anti-Hedging and Anti-Pledging Policies for Directors and Executive Officers
The Corporation maintains an anti-hedging restriction within its Insider Trading Policy, which prohibits executive officers and directors from buying or selling options (puts or calls) on Enact securities on an exchange or in any other organized market, and it also prohibits certain forms of hedging or monetization transactions with respect to Enact securities, such as prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars, forward sale contracts and exchange funds. The restrictions under the Insider Trading Policy related to anti-hedging and anti-pledging only apply to statutory insiders. The Corporation maintains this policy because hedging transactions, which might be considered short-term bets on the movement of the Corporation’s securities, could create the appearance that the person is trading based on inside information. In addition, transactions in options may also focus the person’s attention on short-term performance at the expense of our long-term objectives.
The Corporation also maintains anti-pledging restrictions within its Inside Trading Policy, which prohibits its executive officers and directors from holding Enact securities in a margin account or otherwise pledging enact securities as collateral for a loan. Securities held in a margin account as collateral for a margin loan may be sold by the broker without the customer’s consent if the customer fails to meet a margin call. Similarly, securities pledged as collateral for a loan may be sold in foreclosure if the borrower defaults on the loan. The Corporation maintains this policy because a margin sale or foreclosure sale may occur at a time when the pledger is aware of material nonpublic information or otherwise is not permitted to trade in Enact securities and the margin sale or foreclosure sale of Enact securities during such time could also create the appearance that the person is trading based on inside information.
Clawback Policy
The Corporation maintains a clawback policy under which the Corporation will seek to recover, at the discretion and direction of the Compensation Committee, and after it has considered the costs and benefits of doing so, incentive compensation earned by, awarded, or paid to a covered officer for performance periods beginning after September 15, 2021, if the result of a performance measure upon which the award was based or paid is subsequently restated or otherwise adjusted in a manner that would reduce the size of the award or payment (other than a restatement or adjustment due to a change in applicable accounting principles, rules or interpretations). In addition, if a covered officer engaged in fraud or intentional misconduct that contributed to an award or payment of incentive compensation to him or her that is greater than would have been paid or awarded in the absence of the misconduct, the Corporation may take other remedial and recovery actions, as determined by the Compensation Committee. We intend to amend our clawback policy consistent with the requirements of Rule 10D-1 and the Nasdaq listing standards adopted thereunder.
Evaluation of Compensation Program Risks
The Compensation Committee annually reviews a report prepared by management, led by the Corporation’s Risk Department, regarding the design and operation of our compensation arrangements for employees, including executive officers, for the purpose of determining whether such programs might encourage inappropriate risk-taking that could have a material adverse effect on the Corporation. Following that review for 2022 compensation, the Compensation Committee agreed with management’s conclusion that the Corporation’s compensation plans, programs, and policies do not encourage employees to take risks that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Corporation.
Report of the Compensation Committee
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors oversees the compensation programs of Enact Holdings, Inc. on behalf of the Board. In fulfilling its oversight responsibilities, the committee reviewed and discussed with management the Compensation Discussion and Analysis included in this document.
In reliance on the review and discussion referred to above, the Compensation Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the Compensation Discussion and Analysis be included in Enact’s Annual Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A to be filed in connection with Enact’s 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and incorporated by reference in Enact’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the Fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.
This report shall not be deemed to otherwise be incorporated by reference by any general statement incorporating by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shall not otherwise be deemed filed under such acts. This report is provided by the following directors, who constitute the committee:

(1)Amounts reported in this column for 2022 reflect the value of Genworth Deferred Cash awards that were originally granted in prior years and vested in 2022.
(2)Amounts reported in this column reflect the aggregate grant date fair value of the RSUs and PSUs awarded during the year, determined in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. The grant date fair value for the RSUs granted in 2022 is based on the stock price of a share of our common stock on the date of grant. The grant date fair value of the PSUs granted in 2022 is based on the stock price of our common stock on the date of grant and the probable achievement level of the performance goals at the time of grant. Assuming achievement of the PSU performance conditions at the highest level (rather than at the target attainment level reflected in the table), the aggregate grant date fair value of the 2022 PSUs reflected in this column for 2022 would be higher by the following amounts: Gupta, $2,052,840, Mitchell $436,244, Stolove, $205,286, Derstine, $166,812 and Gould, $1,66,812. Please reference the Key compensation Program Elements- Long-Term Incentives section of the CD&A for further details. For RSUs and PSUs granted by Genworth in 2021 and 2020, the grant date fair value is based on the stock price of a share of Genworth’s common stock.
(3)Reflects the annual change in actuarial present values of Mr. Gupta’s accumulated benefits under the SERP provided by Genworth. The SERP was closed to new participants effective January 1, 2010. A description of the SERP precedes the 2022 Pension Benefits Table below. For 2022, such change was negative and thus reported as $0 pursuant to SEC regulations.

Grants of Plan-Based Awards
The table below provides information on the following plan-based awards that were made in 2022:
Annual Incentive. Annual incentive opportunities awarded to our NEOs are earned based on Corporation performance measured against one-year financial objectives and key strategic priorities, together with a qualitative assessment of performance, including individual performance objectives. Additional information regarding the design of the annual incentive program may be found in Key Compensation Program Elements- Annual Incentive section above. Annual incentives are identified as “AI” in the Award Type column of the following table. Actual amounts paid are included in the Summary Compensation Table “Non-equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column above.
Restricted Stock Units. Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of our common stock in the future. If the Corporation pays dividends on its common stock, dividend equivalents accrue with respect to the RSUs and will be reinvested in additional RSUs and paid at the time that the corresponding RSUs vest. Additional information regarding RSUs is included in the Key Compensation Program Elements- Long-Term Incentives- Restricted Stock Units section above.
Performance Stock Units. PSUs granted may convert to shares of our common stock following the end of the performance period based on achievement of certain pre-established performance goals. PSUs are granted with respect to a target number of shares, will be forfeited if performance falls below a designated threshold level of performance, and may be earned up to 200% of the target number of shares for exceeding a designated maximum level of performance. If the Corporation pays dividends on its common stock, dividend equivalents accrue with respect to the PSUs and will be reinvested in additional PSUs at the time that the corresponding PSUs vest. Additional information regarding PSUs is included in the Key Compensation Program Elements- Long-Term Incentives- Performance Stock Units section above.

Pension Benefits
The SERP is a non-qualified, defined benefit plan maintained by Genworth to provide eligible executives with additional retirement benefits. Mr. Gupta is the only Enact NEO eligible for this plan, as the SERP was closed to new participants after December 31, 2009. The annual SERP benefit is a life annuity equal to a fixed percentage multiplied by the participant’s years of benefit service, and the participant’s average annual compensation (based on the highest consecutive 36-month period within the last 120-month period prior to separation from service) with the resulting benefit not to exceed 40% of the participant’s average annual compensation. Benefit service is defined as service with Genworth and its subsidiaries from the plan’s inception date (September 27, 2005) or date of SERP participation. The SERP benefit is then reduced by the value of the participant’s account balance under the Retirement Account Feature of our Retirement and Savings Plan as converted to an equivalent annual annuity. Compensation for SERP purposes generally includes only base salary and annual cash incentive (each whether or not deferred).
The annual SERP benefit is calculated as described below:

Account Feature
Each participant in the SERP will partially vest with regard to their benefit when they reach age 55 and have earned five years of “future service” (i.e. service occurring after December 31, 2015). Once a SERP participant has earned five years of “future service” and has reached at least age 55, the participant will become partially vested based on a scale ranging from 50% at age 55 and increasing by 10% each year until the participant reaches full vesting at age 60. If a participant resigns before vesting, then his or her SERP benefit will be forfeited. Only in certain circumstances will the SERP become fully vested upon termination prior to age 60, as described in the Executive Compensation-Potential Payments upon Termination or Change of Control section below. Benefit payments under the SERP will begin following a participant’s qualifying separation from service, but not earlier than age 60. The SERP has no provisions for acceleration of payout before age 60. There are also no provisions for the granting of extra years of service.
