Add capabilities and capital to support clients in reaching their goals.
How does RGA perform acquisitions?
RGA works with clients to help achieve three types of opportunities:
- Total divestiture of an entity.
- Reinsurance with transfer of direct policy administration.
- Block reinsurance: coinsure (a portion of an) in-force block through an Asset Intensive transaction.
RGA's Global Financial Solutions Acquisitions team supports our clients in the acquisition and / or disposition of business by assisting with diligence, co-investing, reinsuring the whole or aspects of the risks to facilitate transactions (including assuming responsibility for direct policy administration), and providing cash and regulatory financing.

Most transactions are long-tailed, and so are RGA's partnerships with counterparties. RGA delivers a long record of execution certainty, from demonstrating commitment as a buyer to arranging financing contingencies and regulatory approvals to delivering sufficient capital and capacity to complete a transaction. We are able to tailor each solution to meet the client's unique objective.
RGA can structure reinsurance, stock purchase, and swap solutions as well as partnership approaches. We demonstrate:
Strong ability to assume operational as well as financial risks, including:
- The assumption of legacy systems and DPA ability
- Experience working with third party administrators to reduce operating expenses
Decades of actuarial and management experience that can:
- Reduce the risk of last-minute surprises
- Empower counterparties to better navigate regulatory and tax issues
- More seamlessly integrate blocks of business
It is imperative to choose a well-regarded counterparty among relevant regulators or there is a risk that the transaction is not approved. RGA offers real value and competitive pricing, as well as other tangible benefits:
- Residual liability (e.g., IBNR)
- Ongoing obligations (e.g., direct policy administration)
- Counterparty exposure (e.g., financial strength, collateral, credit for reinsurance)
- Ease of execution / transition
- Ongoing relationship with the buyer
