May 15 (Bloomberg) -- John Doyle, the chief executive officer of American International Group Inc.’s Chartis Global Commercial Insurance unit, said low interest rates are contributing to higher prices for some coverage.

“I don’t think much has changed in the supply-demand balance, or maybe imbalance at the moment, around the world, and yet prices are up,” Doyle said at the Goldman Sachs Insurance Symposium in New York today. “What did change in that period of time was that the Fed did come out and say that interest rates are going to be low for an extended period of time. I do think that’s a factor in the market.”
