American International Group (AIG) has been named the official insurance partner of the PGA of America, as well as some of the golf organisation’s most prestigious championships. These include the PGA Championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
The new partnership expands on the existing relationship between AIG Life & Retirement and the PGA of America. VALIC, an AIG company and part of AIG Life & Retirement, is the PGA Golf Retirement Plus program’s exclusive retirement plan provider.
“We’re very pleased to have AIG as the official insurance partner of the PGA of America and several of our major championships,” said Jeff Price, PGA of America chief commercial officer. “VALIC is already an important part of the financial lives of many PGA professionals, and we’re delighted to strengthen our partnership with AIG.”
Kevin Hogan, CEO of AIG Life & Retirement, commented: “AIG Life & Retirement and the team at VALIC are proud of our efforts to help PGA professionals achieve financial security, and we are excited to extend this relationship. AIG’s partnership with the PGA of America highlights the shared core values of both organisations, each grounded in a history of 100 years of leadership, expertise and innovation.”
