The company operates through three core businesses:

  • General Insurance, which includes Commercial, Personal Insurance, U.S., and international field operations.
  • Life & Retirement with Group Retirement, Individual Retirement, Life, and Institutional Markets in it.
  • Technology-enabled subsidiary.

AIG was founded December 19, 1919, and was initially operating in China and Southeast Asia, including Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. In 1926 the company opened its first office in the US and started its expansion on a brand new market.  During the financial crisis of 2008, the Federal Reserve bailed the company out for $180 billion and assumed control, with the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission correlating AIG's failure with the mass sales of unhedged insurance. AIG repaid $205 billion to the United States government in 2012.
