Working at RGA

Overview

RGA’s culture is a magnet for a certain type of person – an individual who embraces collaboration, who is intellectually curious, who is energized by challenges, and who is driven to work on big problems and develop the best solutions.

RGA offers an environment where you can be challenged as you learn, grow, and collaborate with exceptional people from around the world.

Put simply, an insurance company, also known as a ceding company, purchases reinsurance to help manage and reduce the financial impact of claims. Reinsurance spreads this risk, enabling insurers to avoid large variations in claims experience and maintain financial stability. Other forms of reinsurance, such as capital-motivated reinsurance, are focused on helping ceding companies efficiently manage capital, reserving requirements, and other issues.

Since its launch in 1973, RGA has steadily grown to become one of the world’s largest and most respected life and health reinsurers, recognized for its superior risk management expertise, innovative product design, and dedicated client focus. Today, at RGA, you can be part of an industry-leading team that finds fresh opportunities and solutions to support a changing industry. 

At the forefront of RGA’s culture is collaboration. It's what every employee must embrace to succeed. Through collaboration, RGA has created an environment where innovation and intellectual thinking drives us to develop client-focused solutions. Hear from Tim Besmer, RGA Vice President, Global Audit Services, about how working at RGA helped him deliver beyond expectations.
