New Service Streamlines Purchase of Global Excess Liability Insurance

NEW YORK--May 1, 2007--The AIG Companies today introduced AIG Passport(SM) for Excess Casualty, a service created for multinational companies to facilitate purchasing locally admitted excess casualty liability insurance to cover their international operations and subsidiaries.

AIG Passport for Excess Casualty provides U.S. multinational companies the opportunity to request excess limits atop existing foreign general liability primary policies. AIG Passport for Excess Casualty policies are issued by the AIG Companies and are compliant with local laws and regulations. Claims will be handled by local AIG claims examiners supported by a New York-based management team that can liaise with the subsidiary’s parent company legal team. AIG Passport service is available at inception or renewal for AIG Excess Casualty customers.

“Multinationals are looking for a streamlined way to purchase locally admitted liability coverage for their operations around the globe,” said Tim McAuliffe, President AIG Excess Casualty. “AIG Passport can meet this demand by helping corporations acquire policies that adhere to local customs, laws and regulatory guidelines.”

AIG Passport for Excess Casualty is the second Passport-branded product introduced by the AIG companies. In September of 2006, AIG Passport for Directors and Officers (D&O) was introduced, a service to facilitate the purchase of global directors and officers’ liability insurance. AIG’s unique global franchise and financial strength enables the company to consistently deliver products to meet evolving insurance coverage needs worldwide.
