AIG Pays Down a Few Bucks on Its Fed Credit Line

Thursday, August 05, 2010 , , , 1 Comments

Wow, if they keep up this pace they'll easily repay that $183 billion we gave them in no time!


American International Group Inc. reduced the debt it owes on a Federal Reserve credit line by about $3.5 billion in the last three months, signaling an improvement in liquidity at the bailed-out insurer.

AIG owed $23.4 billion as of July 28, down from about $27 billion at the end of April, according to Fed data. The draw has declined for 10 of the past 12 weeks, the first time that has happened since the facility was established in 2008 as part of New York-based AIG’s first rescue.

“The fact that this number is coming down is a positive indication that the solvency of the insurance entities is on the mend,” said David Havens, managing director at Nomura Securities International Inc. in New York. “Assuming the funds repaying the Fed line are coming from the insurers, that’s a strong signal that their balance sheets have been repaired.”

You know what they say about assuming...

Supposedly AIG is considering giving up its $6 billion stake in its own crap assets that are now basically Fed property (Maiden Lane II and III) in the hopes that the sale might help them pay back some of the money they owe from, well, needing the Fed to bail them out and take them in the first place. Totally logical. After they figure that part out, maybe the Treasury will see some of the $49 billion it floated AIG.

Let's not forget the Fed is expecting interest.

Most of AIG's payback cash has come from divesting foreign operations - at some point, it's obviously going to run out of subsidiaries to sell off. But at that point I'm sure AIG will be making the $8 billion a year required to pay back bailout funds. Suuuuuure.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Myself, Sonia has taken 3 general insurance policies in the name of my Spouse (Mrs. Rinkini Nath), Mother(Mrs. Anjana Nath) and Father (Mr. Biswanath Nath). The policy numbers are listed below,
I made the payment through my ICICI bank Credit Card as the Sales executive told me that six month emi facilites would be there but i have recieved the satement for this month from ICICI bank which includes the whole amount. That means the amount which i have spent for taking the policy is not splitted into six emi's.
I have discussed with the customer care executive regarding the same today and as per his given instruction i am sending the scanned copy of the credit card statement attached to this mail. The statement has been generated on 28 th of May and the last due date is 15 th of this month. Please look onto this and do the needful as soon as possible and I also register my complaint at but still not get any response. I will expect that the problem will be rectified before 15th of June 2010.
That was the mail i wrote to TATA AIG team but they have suggested to take fresh policies with paying 1000 INR for each which is absolutely rediculas. dont take any policies from them they are existing to make their customer fool and earn money.
