The decline in 2023 net income was mainly attributed to net realised losses largely related to Fortitude Re funds withheld embedded derivative at life & retirement as well as derivative activity.

Commenting on the numbers, AIG chair and chief executive Peter Zaffino said in a release: “In 2023, AIG delivered outstanding financial results, highlighted by excellent underwriting performance and the successful execution of multiple complex initiatives, while delivering exceptional value for our clients and stakeholders.

“Our substantial progress reflects the dedication and teamwork of our AIG colleagues around the world who have delivered on our objectives. The full-year adjusted after-tax income per diluted share increased 33% from the prior year to US$6.79.

“We have further repositioned AIG for the future with the divestitures of Validus Re and Crop Risk Services, and we enter 2024 with significant momentum.”
