​About RGA Italy

RGA Italy has become a market leader in the life reinsurance industry. In the 2012 NMG Consulting studies, we ranked #1 on NMG’s Business Capability Index. This is a testament to how well we are viewed by insurers for providing quality service and support to our clients.

We opened as a representative office in 2007 and became a branch office in 2009. We continuously focus on how to better serve our clients, and our commitment to competitive pricing and timely service has strengthened our position in the Italian marketplace.

Comprehensive Products and Services
We offer a comprehensive line of products and services including individual life reinsurance, individual living benefits reinsurance, individual health reinsurance and group reinsurance. We have quickly become known for our expertise in product development, including mortality, preferred risk, critical illness, creditor protection and long-term care reinsurance. We also support bancassurance.
