About RGA France
In just four years, RGA France has become a well-respected life reinsurer in France and Belgium. We opened our doors in 2007 and since then we have experienced significant growth. Today we have more than 150 treaties in place and serve more than 50 clients.
Comprehensive Products and Services
We offer a comprehensive line of products and services including individual life reinsurance, individual living benefits reinsurance, group reinsurance and non-proportional (per life and catastrophic) reinsurance. In addition, RGA pioneered the use of reinsurance as a financial management tool and we can bring our financial solutions expertise to you to help you manage your risk and capital through capital-motivated reinsurance. We also provide product development expertise in addition to underwriting and actuarial support.
In 2008, we launched a French version of the Global Underwriting Manual (GUM) and one year later we entered the BCAC (Bureau Commun des Assurances Collectives) substandard risk pool.
RGA offers innovative e-Underwriting Solutions developed by our underwriting, business and technology experts designed to help your organization underwrite better, faster and with greater consistency. In October 2010, we launched the first demonstration of AURA in French. AURA has the strongest underwriting rules engine on the market, with thousands of underwriting rules covering impairments, medications, sports, prescription drug histories, avocations and treatments.
