In this video, Matt Koppenheffer gives three reasons to sell AIG:

  • The company's core businesses may not be that good. AIG's property and casualty insurance business hasn't been underwriting profitably of late.
  • CEO Robert Benmosche has done well, but he's made it clear he's not staying on forever. Who will replace him?
  • AIG may have suffered significant brand damage from the past financial crisis.
