The company previously stated that it was moving away from unprofitable business.

Overall, Chartis' net written premiums declined 2.6% for the year, to $29.87 billion, and fell 3.3% for the quarter, to $6.7 billion. AIG’s fourth quarter 2010 results are available here.

AIG said its results reflect $4.2 billion of reserve strengthening in the fourth quarter for its Chartis Inc. property/casualty operations. About 80% of the reserve charges were for asbestos, excess casualty, excess work comp, and primary work comp lines.
