Any worries about large fixed income portfolio in inflationary times? I know they own some equities and real estate. And not very long term bonds are not too risky but clearly you want less duration with sudden or high inflation. Not sure their average duration, i think its like 4 years? It's not short but not long...

great company, great managers. made a bundle last few months and a nice dividend. I wonder if Berkshire will ever buy this now as a pure play (was some rumours swirling around). Powerhouse.

@scorpion.north nice congrats!, yup they're improving and gaining some trust again. What I believe Berkshire does is they give more weight to management as their risk parameters, and if AIG continues to commit to improving their shareholder value, AIG might have a huge catalyst like that. Thanks for the feedback :)
Good commentary thank you.
AIG’s been having a great few months.. Restructuring is working and monetary trends are its friends.. I wish BX took the whole company over!
