AIG General Insurance And Retirement Returns

Last year, global insurers endured a marked increase in reimbursements concerning the global health recession, just as the investment opportunities they depend on to cover losses started to deteriorate.

As vaccination implementations help most markets stabilize, investment gains have strengthened, and many companies saw a drop in coronavirus-related claims.

In the quarter ended March 31, consolidated after-tax profits allocated to AIG bondholders increased to $923 million, up from $105 million a year ago.

According to Refinitiv IBES, AIG turned a profit of $1.05 per unit, beating analysts’ expectations of 97 cents.

The insurance company’s life insurance incident year cumulative rate, which includes disaster damages, was 92.4 in the third quarter, down from 95.5 in the previous report.

A percentage less than 100 indicates that the insurer receives more in payments than it reimbursed in claims.

The insurer’s North America and international commercial paths drove a 6% rise in revenue premiums to $10.73 billion in the general insurance sector.

AIG’s insurance and retirement unit increased consolidated pre-tax revenue by 57% to $941 million, owing in part to better-leveraged buyout revenues.

On the other hand, the insurer suffered an estimated pre-tax deficit of $40 million, owing to further casualties caused by the pandemic.
