BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

AIG sells runoff reinsurer for $1.8 billion


American International Group Inc. has sold a 76.6% stake in runoff reinsurer Fortitude Group Holdings to a private equity investor and life insurer for $1.8 billion, the insurer announced late Monday.

The Carlyle Group, which bought a 19.9% stake in the Bermuda-based company last year, formed a new fund to acquire Fortitude, which operates Fortitude Re, with life insurer T&D Holdings Inc., AIG, Carlyle and T&D said in a joint statement.

After the closing of the deal, which is expected in mid-2020, Washington-based Carlyle will own 71.5% of Fortitude, Tokyo-based T&D will own 25% and AIG 3.5%. AIG will receive a $500 million distribution or additional payments related to the sale, the statement said.

The sale “is another important step in our strategy to efficiently manage our legacy liabilities by further preparing Fortitude Re for independence,” Brian Duperreault, president and CEO of AIG, said in a statement.

Fortitude Re was established in 2018 out of DSA Re, which previously handled AIG’s runoff liabilities.
