AIG update
AIG has responded to the outcry from the Paddington Survivors Group over the delay in payment to victims.

In a statement, AIG said: "We understand the primary insurance policy has recently reached its indemnity limit and therefore the remaining outstanding claims have now been passed to the insurers of the excess layers for final settlement."

It named New Hampshire Company, an AIG company, as the lead insurer of the first excess layer.
