History of Omnilife

The business was founded in Cyprus in 1988 as a specialist insurer and moved to the UK in 1994 to provide life assurance protection for UK business employees, commonly known as ‘Group Risk Insurance’. The business soon established a track record as specialist expert in its own field, both in the UK and overseas markets.

In February 2019, following continued success in the UK, the business was acquired by Reinsurance Group of America “RGA”. With the backing of RGA, the business remains today as a specialist insurer, now focused on acquiring and managing the liabilities of closed life insurance portfolios.
