RGA Global Reinsurance Company, Ltd., Labuan Branch
Malaysian Life Reinsurance Group Berhad (MLRe)

RGA has had a presence in the Malaysian market for many years through its affiliation with Malaysian Life Reinsurance Group Berhad (MLRe). In addition, RGA opened the RGA Global Reinsurance Company Limited, Labuan Branch (RGA Labuan) in 2008 and a Kuala Lumpur co-located office in 2014 to better support clients in Malaysia. The co-located office provides access to RGA's extensive global underwriting and actuarial expertise, product development and consulting services, and traditional life reinsurance and financially motivated reinsurance products.

In 2009, RGA received approval to operate a Retakaful Window in Labuan, permitting us to provide Shariah-compliant solutions to takaful operators. RGA is committed to serving the family Takaful market. We adopted the Wakalah-Mudharabah operating model and offer:

  • Traditional family retakaful in life and health risk pooling
  • Takaful product development
  • Retakaful-related financial solutions
  • Facultative underwriting, including impaired risk and large cases
Established in 1997, MLRe was the first life reinsurer in Malaysia. It was founded as a joint venture partnership between RGA and the Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM). RGA has a 30% ownership of MLRe. By 2007, MLRe had the largest life reinsurance market share in Malaysia and today conducts business with all Malaysian life insurance companies, exporting its services to clients in neighboring countries in Southeast Asia (ASEAN).
 
MLRe is an innovator in the life reinsurance industry, bringing a wide variety of new opportunities to clients. The company offers individual life reinsurance, individual living benefits reinsurance, group reinsurance, and financial solutions. MLRe also helps clients initiate simplified underwriting for the bancassurance channel and to design innovative plans, such as early-pay critical illness coverage, and guaranteed-issued credit life plans.
