U.S. Consumer Bureau Probes AIG Over Mortgage Insurance Business

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is investigating American International Group Inc. over issues related to mortgage insurance, the company said in an Aug. 2 regulatory filing.

AIG said the CFPB issued a civil investigative demand, an early step in a probe, in June. On July 24, the bureau suspended the deadlines for complying with the demand “pending discussions that could resolve the investigation,” AIG said.
