At RGA South Korea, we have a strong track record of helping our clients succeed, especially when it comes to introducing innovative new products to the market.

As a testament to our ability to form mutually successful partnerships, our office now counts the majority of Korea’s life insurance companies as clients, and we have a portfolio of more than 3 million reinsured policies – a remarkable achievement in less than a decade of operating in Korea.

In 2009, RGA South Korea was ranked #1 in new individual reinsurance business by NMG Consulting. We are now widely considered the leading life reinsurer in Korea.
