Executives Flee! Sign of Future Trouble?

In addition to JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM  ) recently losing its co-COO, AIG (NYSE: AIG  )  has announced four of its insurance executives are headed to rival Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B  ) .

Both companies have experienced a fair amount of turmoil over the past several years. AIG was infamously bailed out by the U.S. government during the financial crisis, and JPMorgan's management team has been in flux since the London Whale trading fiasco in early 2012. Does the departure of more executives signal that the future is bleak for these embattled companies?

In this video, Motley Fool financials analyst David Hanson tells investors why they shouldn't worry about the departures. He also cites one company that saw its share price skyrocket after some high-level executives were shown the door. 

At the end of last year, AIG was the favorite stock among hedge fund managers. Have they identified the next big multi-bagger, or are the risks facing the insurance giant still too great? In The Motley Fool's premium report on AIG, Financials Bureau Chief Matt Koppenheffer breaks down the key issues that you need to know about if you want to successfully invest in this stock.

    Sorry, I disagree completely with the premise of this article. If you had a chance go to Berkshire, that's a no-brainer. Not a knock on AIG. Berkshire hired these guys because they're good. There's plenty of ammo in AIG talent to replace them.
