A global provider of life reinsurance, Reinsurance Group of America, is building a new $140 million, 405,000 square-foot, global headquarters in St. Louis County, Missouri. The new headquarters will support RGA's continued expansion in the area that is expected to create 300 jobs over the next several years.
"It is always exciting when a long-time Missouri company increases its investment into our state, which is what RGA is doing with its plans to build a new global headquarters in St. Louis County," Gov. Jay Nixon said. "RGA's significant expansion will include a capital investment of $140 million and create 300 new jobs, both of which will provide a strong boost to our state's economy.”
“Here in Missouri, we have successfully fostered a stable, predictable, pro-business environment that is encouraging companies of all sizes to invest and create jobs for our outstanding workforce, and to ensure that Missouri remains an attractive place to live and work.
RGA's expansion is just the latest evidence that our efforts are paying off,” he added. RGA is among the largest global providers of life reinsurance with operations in Australia, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.
