American International Group Inc. (AIG) Chief Executive Robert Benmosche said the company will sell its remaining shares of Asian life insurer AIA Group Ltd. (1299.HK) after the lock-up period expires in September, Reuters reported Wednesday.
Benmosche said the sale will reduce AIG's earnings volatility.
AIG sold two-thirds of AIA in a Hong Kong initial public offering in October 2010 and sold about $6 billion of stock earlier this year, leaving it with a stake of about 18.6%.
