AIG’s General Insurance subsidiaries are multiple line companies writing substantially all lines of property and casualty insurance. Domestic General Insurance operations are comprised of the Domestic Brokerage Group (DBG), which includes the operations of HSB; Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (Transatlantic); Personal Lines, including 21st Century Insurance Group (21st Century); and United Guaranty Corporation (UGC).

AIG’s Life Insurance subsidiaries offer a wide range of traditional insurance and financial and investment products both domestically and abroad. Traditional products consist of individual and group life, annuity, endowment and accident and health policies. Financial and investment products consist of fixed and variable annuities, guaranteed investment contracts and pensions.

A significant portion of AIG’s general and life operating revenues are derived from AIG’s insurance investment operations.

AIG’s worldwide insurance investment policy places primary emphasis on investments in high quality, fixed income securities in all of its portfolios and, to a lesser extent, investments in marketable common stocks, in order to preserve policyholders’ surplus and generate net investment income. The ability to implement this policy is somewhat limited in certain territories as there may be a lack of qualified long term investments or investment restrictions may be imposed by the local regulatory authorities.

AIG’s Financial Services subsidiaries engage in diversified financial products and services including aircraft leasing, capital market transactions, and consumer and insurance premium financing.

AIG’s Aircraft Finance Operations represent the operations of ILFC which engages primarily in the acquisition of commercial jet aircraft and the leasing and remarketing of such aircraft to airlines around the world. Also, ILFC provides, for a fee, fleet management services to certain third-party operators.

AIGFP engages as principal in standard and customized interest rate, currency, equity, and credit products with top tier corporations, financial institutions, governments, agencies, institutional investors, and high net worth individuals throughout the world. AIGFP also raises funds through municipal re-investment contracts and other private and public security offerings, investing the proceeds in a diversified portfolio of high grade securities and derivative transactions. AIGTG engages in various commodity and foreign exchange trading and market making activities.

IG’s Retirement Services & Asset Management operations offer a wide variety of investment products, including variable annuities and mutual funds, as well as investment services, such as investment asset management. Such products and services are offered to individuals and institutions both domestically and overseas.

The insurance industry is highly competitive. Within the United States, AIG’s General Insurance subsidiaries compete with approximately 3,000 other stock companies, specialty insurance organizations, mutual companies and other underwriting organizations. AIG’s subsidiaries offering Life Insurance and Retirement Services compete in the United States with approximately 1,800 life insurance companies and other participants in related financial service fields. Overseas, AIG subsidiaries compete for business with foreign insurance operations of the larger U.S. insurers and local companies in particular areas in which they are active.

AIG’s Insurance, Financial Services and Asset Management operations operate in a highly competitive and increasingly regulated environment, both domestically and overseas. Principal sources of competition are banks, investment banks and other non-bank financial institutions. The focus of AIG’s operations has also become more consumer-oriented, thereby increasing the risks of regulatory supervision and intervention.
