American International Group (AIG) has integrated Talbot’s regional facultative underwriting platforms with its regional underwriting team in Miami and Santiago to introduce AIG Facultative Desk, Latin America.

AIG´s Facultative Desk, Latin America will provide facultative reinsurance solutions through a single access point.

The new desk will continue to write property, construction, political violence, marine cargo, downstream energy, fine arts and species, and ports and terminals businesses, which were earlier written by Talbot.

Additionally, the AIG Facultative Desk, Latin America will launch financial lines, surety and casualty under its new line of offering.

The integration follows the takeover of Validus by AIG in 2018. As part of Validus takeover, AIG also acquired Talbot, Validus Re, insurance-linked securities (ILS) asset manager AlphaCat, and Western World, as well as Crop Risk Services.

Talbot operated as a Lloyd’s of London syndicate focused on short-tail specialty lines whereas Western World is a specialist small commercial excess and surplus underwriting in US.
