Benmosche Says Chartis Business May Be Renamed AIG

American International Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Robert Benmosche said the insurer’s Chartis property-casualty unit may be renamed with the AIG brand as the company emerges from a U.S. government rescue.

“When I got to AIG, they said AIG is gone, it’s finished, the brand will never come back,” Benmosche, 68, said today in a speech at a Korea Society dinner in New York, where AIG is based. “We are considering being just AIG, being proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

Benmosche delivered the keynote address at the dinner marking the 55th anniversary of the New York-based nonprofit, which promotes cooperation between the U.S. and Korea. He said the insurer would continue to invest in Korea.
