AIG Unloads Wealth Management Business

American International Group (AIG - Get Report) just announced a deal to sell its wealth management arm AIG Private Bank Ltd. to Aabar Investments PJSC of Abu Dhabi. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The AIG Private Bank will conduct business under a new name, and its headquarters will be in Switzerland. AIG says that the bank's senior management is expected to remain with the bank. The sale comes as part of the company's promise to sell off a number of business units to pay off a $85 billion government loan.

It appears the company will attempt to get back to its focus on U.S. property and casualty and foreign general insurance businesses. We'll track the progress of the sales, but it will be interesting to see if the assets get sold at prices that can keep the company afloat. We would look elsewhere for better investment opportunities.

American International Group is not recommended at this time, holding a Rating of 1.5 out of 5 stars.
