Financial report summary

  • Our business, results of operations and financial condition have been, and will likely continue to be, adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the response thereto.
  • We utilize assumptions, estimates and models to evaluate the potential impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the response thereto. If actual events differ materially from those assumptions, estimates or models, our potential exposure to mortality claims and investment portfolio losses could be materially higher than those reflected in our capital plans, and our business, financial condition, and results of operations could be materially adversely affected.
  • We make assumptions when pricing our products relating to mortality, morbidity, lapsation, investment returns and expenses, and significant deviations in experience could negatively affect our financial condition and results of operations.
  • Changes in accounting standards may adversely affect our reported results of operations and financial condition.
  • Our reinsurance subsidiaries are highly regulated, and changes in these regulations could negatively affect our business.
  • A downgrade in our ratings or in the ratings of our reinsurance subsidiaries could adversely affect our ability to compete.
  • The availability and cost of collateral, including letters of credit, asset trusts and other credit facilities, as well as regulatory changes relating to the use of captive insurance companies, could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.
  • Changes in the equity markets, interest rates and volatility affect the profitability of variable annuities with guaranteed living benefits that we reinsure, which may have a material adverse effect on our business and profitability.
  • RGA is an insurance holding company, and our ability to pay principal, interest and dividends on securities is limited.
  • We are exposed to foreign currency risk.
  • Our international operations involve inherent risks.
  • We depend on the performance of others, and their failure to perform in a satisfactory manner would negatively affect us.
  • Epidemics and pandemics, natural and man-made disasters, catastrophes and events, including terrorist attacks, could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • We operate in a highly competitive and dynamic industry and competition, tax law changes, an economic downturn and other factors could adversely affect our business.
  • Acquisitions and significant transactions involve varying degrees of risk that could affect our profitability.
  • Our risk management policies and procedures could leave us exposed to unidentified or unanticipated risk, which could negatively affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.
  • The failure in cyber or other information security systems, including a failure to maintain the security, confidentiality, integrity or privacy of sensitive data residing on such systems, as well as the occurrence of unanticipated events affecting our disaster recovery systems and business continuity planning, could impair our ability to conduct business effectively.
  • Failure to protect the confidentiality of information could adversely affect our reputation and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Managing key employee attraction, retention and succession is critical to our success.
  • Litigation and regulatory investigations and actions may result in financial losses or harm our reputation.
  • Adverse capital and credit market conditions and access to credit facilities may significantly affect our ability to meet liquidity needs, access to capital and cost of capital.
  • Difficult conditions in the global capital markets and the economy generally may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • If our investment strategy is unsuccessful, we could suffer losses.
  • Interest rate fluctuations could negatively affect the income we derive from the difference between the interest rates we earn on our investments and interest we pay under our reinsurance contracts.
  • The liquidity and value of some of our investments may become significantly diminished.
  • We could be forced to sell investments at a loss to cover policyholder withdrawals, recaptures of reinsurance treaties or other events.
  • Defaults, downgrades or other events impairing the value of our fixed maturity securities portfolio may reduce our earnings.
  • The defaults or deteriorating credit of other financial institutions could adversely affect us.
  • Defaults on our mortgage loans or the mortgage loans underlying our investments in mortgage-backed securities and volatility in performance of our investments in real-estate related assets may adversely affect our profitability.
  • Our valuation of fixed maturity and equity securities and derivatives include methodologies, estimations and assumptions that are subject to differing interpretations and could result in changes to investment valuations that may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.
  • The determination of the amount of allowances and impairments taken on our investments is highly subjective and could materially affect our financial condition or results of operations.
  • Our investments are reflected within the consolidated financial statements utilizing different accounting bases and accordingly we may not have recognized differences, which may be significant, between cost and fair value in our consolidated financial statements.
  • Phasing out of London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) after 2021 may adversely affect the value of certain of our LIBOR-based assets and liabilities.
  • We may not pay dividends on our common stock.
  • Certain provisions in our articles of incorporation and bylaws, in Missouri law and in applicable insurance laws, may delay or prevent a change in control, which could adversely affect the price of our common stock.
  • Issuing additional shares may dilute the value or affect the price of our common stock.
  • The occurrence of various events may adversely affect the ability of RGA and its subsidiaries to fully utilize any net operating losses (“NOLs”) and other tax attributes.
