The firm will look to further develop its presence in the market using its Active Care strategy, which tailors to the needs of targeted customer segments.

A deeper focus on understanding customers and their needs across all product lines will see the merged business “expand on traditional insurance products” by utilising risk awareness and prevention services.

AIG confirmed that there would be no impact on in-force policies from both AIU and Fuji Fire and Marine either pre or post-merger.

The merger is subject to regulatory approval.
