About AIG

American International Group (AIG) was founded in 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 — when 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 expanded, often through subsidiaries, into other markets including Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.
