About RGA France

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.

Major Milestones
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 service on the market, with thousands of underwriting rules covering impairments, medications, sports, prescription drug histories, avocations and treatments.

World’s Leading Facultative Underwriter
When it comes to facultative reinsurance, RGA is the worldwide leader. As a global organization, RGA has received nearly 5 million cases since 1979.

A Global In-Force Leader
RGA also manages one of the largest in-force blocks in the life reinsurance industry with approximately $3.0 trillion of life reinsurance in force. Our mortality and morbidity databases are among the largest worldwide.

Hands-On Training for Client Underwriters and Actuaries
At RGA, we believe in the power of shared knowledge. When you partner with us, we will help your underwriters and actuaries stay abreast of the latest knowledge, research and trends through conferences and training opportunities including the Global Underwriting Learning Framework (GULF). We also share our insight and expertise through newsletters, white papers and articles.

Advancing the France Insurance Industry
We have a strong commitment to the growth and success of the French insurance industry. Our experts are members of numerous French insurance and finance organizations including the French Institute of Actuaries (IA), APREF (Association des Professionnels de la Réassurance en France) and l’Institut Silverlife.

We invite you to contact us to learn more about how we can meet your reinsurance needs—whether you want to bring a new product to market, improve the performance of an existing product or better manage your risk and capital through financial solutions.
