In Brief
RGA Group Reinsurance conducted a survey of Canadian insurers on group optional products to assess the growth in premium in the past five years.

Thirteen carriers participated in the survey, providing feedback on group optional products for employees and dependents between 2015 and 2019.

Contributing factors to these trends may offer insurers insights into strategies for future product development.
