American International Group, Inc. (AIG), also known as AIU Holdings, Inc., is an American insurance corporation. According to the 2008 Forbes Global 2000 list, AIG was once the 18th-largest public company in the world.
AIG history dates back to 1919, when Cornelius Vander Starr established an insurance agency in Shanghai, China. Starr was the first Westerner in Shanghai to sell insurance to the Chinese, which he continued to do until AIG left China in early 1949 — as Mao Zedong led the advance of the Communist People's Liberation Army on Shanghai. Starr then moved the company headquarters to its current home in New York City. The company went on to expand, often through subsidiaries, into other markets, including other parts of Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.
American International Group Home Insurance Says
A homeowners insurance plan with AIG guards a policyholder’s physical residence and its contents against loss or damage from perils such as fire, flood, vandalism, hurricane, hail and lightning. It also covers an individual’s legal responsibility (liability) for any injuries people might suffer while on the covered property.
