Business Segments Description

General Insurance Operations

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 primary domestic division is DBG. DBG’s business is derived from brokers in the United States and Canada and is conducted through its General Insurance subsidiaries including American Home, National Union, Lexington and certain other General Insurance company subsidiaries of AIG. The AIG Risk Management operation provides insurance and risk management programs for large corporate customers. The AIG Risk Finance division designs and implements risk financing alternatives using the insurance and financial services capabilities of AIG. Also included in DBG are the operations of AIG Environmental, which focuses specifically on providing specialty products to clients with environmental exposures.

DBG writes substantially all classes of business insurance accepting such business mainly from insurance brokers. This provides DBG the opportunity to select specialized markets and retain underwriting control. Any licensed broker is able to submit business to DBG without the traditional agent-company contractual relationship, but such broker usually has no authority to commit DBG to accept a risk.

In addition to writing substantially all classes of business insurance, including large commercial or industrial property insurance, excess liability, inland marine, environmental, workers’ compensation and excess and umbrella coverages, DBG offers many specialized forms of insurance such as equipment breakdown, directors and officers liability, difference-in-conditions, kidnap-ransom, export credit and political risk, and various types of professional errors and omissions coverages. Lexington writes surplus lines, those risks for which conventional insurance companies do not readily provide insurance coverage, either because of complexity or because the coverage does not lend itself to conventional contracts.

Transatlantic offers reinsurance capacity on both treaty and facultative basis. Transatlantic structures programs for a full range of property and casualty products with an emphasis on specialty risk.

AIG engages in mass marketing of personal lines coverages, primarily private passenger auto and personal umbrella coverages, principally through American International Insurance Company and 21st Century.

The business of UGC and its subsidiaries is also included in the domestic operations of AIG. The principal business of the UGC subsidiaries is the writing of residential mortgage loan insurance, which is guaranty insurance on conventional first mortgage loans on single-family dwellings and condominiums. Such insurance protects lenders against loss if borrowers default. UGC subsidiaries also write home equity and property improvement loan insurance on loans to finance residential property improvements, alterations and repairs and for other purposes not necessarily related to real estate.

AIG’s Foreign General insurance group accepts risks primarily underwritten through American International Underwriters (AIU), a marketing unit consisting of wholly owned agencies and insurance companies. The Foreign General insurance group also includes business written by AIG’s foreign-based insurance subsidiaries for their own accounts. The Foreign General group uses various marketing methods to write both business and personal lines insurance with certain refinements for local laws, customs and needs. AIU operates in Asia, the Pacific Rim, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Latin America.

AIG’s General Insurance company subsidiaries worldwide operate primarily by underwriting and accepting risks for their direct account and securing reinsurance on that portion of the risk in excess of the limit which they wish to retain. This operating policy differs from that of many insurance companies which will underwrite only up to their net retention limit, thereby requiring the broker or agent to secure commitments from other underwriters for the remainder of the gross risk amount.

The utilization of reinsurance is closely monitored by an internal reinsurance security committee, consisting of members of AIG’s senior management. No single reinsurer is a material reinsurer to AIG nor is AIG’s business substantially dependent upon any reinsurance contract.

The majority of AIG’s General Insurance business is in the casualty classes, which tend to involve longer periods of time for the reporting and settling of claims. This may increase the risk and uncertainty with respect to AIG’s loss reserve development.

Life Insurance Operations

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.

AIG operates overseas principally through ALICO, AIA and Nan Shan. ALICO is incorporated in Delaware and all of its business is written outside of the United States. ALICO has operations either directly or through subsidiaries in Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South Asia and the Far East, with Japan being the largest territory. AIG added significantly to its presence in Japan with the acquisition of GE Edison Life Insurance Company, (now known as AIG Edison Life Insurance Company) (AIG Edison Life), in 2003 and AIG Star Life in 2001, as a result of the reorganization of Chiyoda Mutual Life Insurance Company. AIA operates primarily in China (including Hong Kong), Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Nan Shan operates in Taiwan.

AIG’s principal domestic Life Insurance operations include AIG American General Life, AIG Annuity and SunAmerica Life. These companies utilize multiple distribution channels including brokerage and career and general agents to offer traditional life products as well as financial and investment products.

Traditional Life Insurance products such as whole life and endowment continue to be significant in the overseas companies, especially in Southeast Asia, while a mixture of traditional, accident and health and financial products are sold in Japan.

In addition to the above, AIG also has subsidiary operations in the Philippines, Canada, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland and Puerto Rico, and conducts life insurance business through AIUO subsidiary companies in Russia, Israel and in certain countries in Central and South America.

The foreign life companies have over 230,000 career agents and sell their products largely to indigenous persons in local currencies. In addition to the agency outlets, these companies also distribute their products through direct marketing channels, such as mass marketing, and through brokers and other distribution outlets such as financial institutions.

Insurance Investment Operations

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.

Financial Services Operations

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.

AGF provides a wide variety of consumer finance products, including real estate mortgages, consumer loans, retail sales finance and credit related insurance to customers in the United States.

AIGCFG, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in developing a multi-product consumer finance business with an emphasis on emerging markets.

Together Aircraft Finance, Capital Markets and AIG’s Consumer Finance operations comprise the vast majority of the commissions, transaction and other fees of AIG’s consolidated financial services operations.

Imperial A.I. Credit Companies also contribute to financial services income. This operation engages principally in insurance premium financing.

Retirement Services & Asset Management Operations

AIG’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.

AIG’s principal Retirement Services & Asset Management operations are conducted through AIG Retirement Services, Inc. and its subsidiaries (AIG SunAmerica), VALIC and its related marketing entities (AIG VALIC) and AIG Global Investment Group. AIG SunAmerica develops and sells variable annuities and other investment products, sells and manages mutual funds and provides financial services. AIG VALIC provides tax qualified annuities to the employees of educational, healthcare and governmental entities. AIG Global Investment Group manages third-party institutional, retail and private equity funds invested assets on a global basis, provides securities lending and custodial services and organizes and manages the invested assets of institutional private equity investment funds. Each of these subsidiary operations receives fees for investment products and services provided.
