17:10 EDTAIGA.M. Best places AIG and subsidiaries' ratings under review
A.M. Best has placed under review with negative implications the issuer credit rating of American International Group and the financial strength ratings and ICRs of its insurance subsidiaries. The under review status reflects the strengthening of loss reserves in AIG's non-life business by $3.6 billion during the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily reflecting adverse development on prior accident years in longer-tailed lines of business. While the reserve actions are spread across a number of accident years, A.M. Best is concerned that approximately 41% of the strengthening relates to 2011-2013 accident years, for which either favorable or modestly adverse development had been previously reported, and the 2014 accident year. The total amount of the deficiency reported exceeds A.M. Best's assumptions of loss reserve deficiency, excluding the reversal of statutory discounts of reserves for workers' compensation. The under review status also considers the potential impact on the business profile and future earnings capacity of AIG of the strategic actions being taken by management to improve profitability and efficiency and maximize shareholder value.

06:59 EDTAIG, TRVAIG goals look too optimistic, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Joshua Shanker says that if AIG (AIG) hits its stated goal of 600 basis point reduction in Commercial P&C loss ratio through 2017, its core loss ratio would be better than both Travelers (TRV) and the new Chubb (CB). Shanker views the goal as too optimistic and is not modeling for it entirely in his model. He keeps a Hold rating on AIG with a $60 price target.
