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. For example, RGA provided the product and pricing expertise to the very first contemporary critical illness product launched in the Korean market.

As a testament to our ability to form mutually successful partnerships, our office now counts the majority of Korea’s life and non-life insurance companies as clients. We have a portfolio of more than 7 million reinsured policies – a remarkable achievement in just a decade of operating in Korea.

In 2009 and 2015, 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.

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 RGA’s Global Underwriting Learning Framework (GULF). We also share our insight and expertise through newsletters, white papers and articles. 

Strong Client Focus Commitment

​To demonstrate RGA Korea’s commitment to being your business partner, we deliver “360° Commitment Service,” an approach that provides advanced services that go beyond providing products and services. Our 360° Commitment Service is an ongoing business process that features planning a product design workshop, developing marketing plans to increase sales and tracking product performance per channel. We analyze successful and not-so-successful factors after the launch, using these findings to either refine the existing product or plan the next version.
Insurance is a service based on trust and a promise to customers. RGA understands that promise and knows that future growth starts with a trusted-advisor relationship with our clients. Through our distinctive 360° Commitment Service, we will strive to continuously grow our clients’ faith in RGA and consistently improve our services for clients.

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.
