American International Group (AIG) is to launch AIG Facultative Desk, Latin America after successfully integrating Talbot’s regional facultative underwriting platforms in Miami and Santiago with its regional underwriting team.

This unification of operations and increased product offering will allow AIG to better serve the needs of regional cedents and reinsurance brokers in the region,” commented Paride Della Rosa, Chief Executive Officer for Latin America and the Caribbean.
