AIG to form HNW MGA

AIG is in discussions with private equity firm Stone Point Capital to form an independent Managing General Agency (MGA) to serve the High Net Worth and Ultra High Net Worth markets.

AIG’s Private Client Group (PCG) business will move to this new independent platform and be rebranded as Private Client Select Insurance Services (PCS).

“As previously disclosed, AIG has been exploring structures that, over time, will allow PCG to be supported by third-party capital providers, including AIG and its innovative syndicate at Lloyd’s, referred to as Syndicate 2019. By partnering with a world-class private equity firm like Stone Point, we can maximize the strengths of this business and improve product offerings to better serve the High and Ultra High Net Worth markets.” – Peter Zaffino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AIG.

PCG personnel will transfer to the MGA once it is formed.

“We are excited to be entering this partnership and look forward to building a top performing MGA committed to excellence in the attractive High and Ultra High Net Worth markets. I am confident that Stone Point’s experience in the insurance industry, coupled with AIG’s risk management expertise and product knowledge, will create significant value for all stakeholders.” – Jim Carey, Managing Director Stone Point.

Completion of the proposed transactions among AIG and Stone Point is subject to negotiation of definitive agreements, obtaining required permits and regulatory approvals. The terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
