About Us

In 1919, Cornelius Vander Starr stepped off a steamship in Shanghai determined to make his mark in the world. Working from a two-room office, he established American Asiatic Underwriters, an insurance agency to which we trace our roots. Starr believed in making the world a better place and with other early company pioneers, his organization grew across the world. Today, AIG is a global insurance company headquartered in New York with operations in approximately 70 countries and jurisdictions. AIG companies serve commercial, institutional, and individual customers through one of the most extensive worldwide property-casualty networks of any insurer. 

AIG Commercial Insurance is a leading provider of products and services for the full spectrum of enterprises – from large, multinational and mid-sized companies and institutions to small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations across the globe. We are focused on being our clients’ most valued insurer through an unwavering commitment to our customers, our strong capital position, extensive risk management and claims experience, and our ability to be a market leader in critical lines of business insurance.

AIG’s Facultative Desk was established in Miami in early 2019 to offer our clients reinsurance solutions with Property, Casualty, Environmental, Marine, Financial Lines, Cyber, Energy, and Political Violence risks in Latin America and the Caribbean.  AIG’s global expertise combined with our regional market knowledge and backed by a highly experienced team of underwriting, claims, and risk control professionals positions AIG’s FAC Desk as a meaningful partner in providing reinsurance solutions to our clients. Our closeness to the Latin America and the Caribbean markets and our understanding of how external factors impact each line of business enable us to recognize trends in the risk landscape and develop innovative reinsurance solutions for each client.
