Financial Stability Oversight Council Announces Rescission of
Nonbank Financial Company Designation
September 29, 2017

its determination that material financial distress at American International Group,

Inc. (AIG) could pose a threat to U.S. financial stability and that AIG shall be subject to
supervision by the Board of Governors and enhanced prudential standards.
"The Council has worked diligently to thoroughly reevaluate whether AIG poses a risk to
financial stability," said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. "This action demonstrates our
commitment to act decisively to remove any designation if a company does not pose a threat to
financial stability."

Council to reevaluate its nonbank financial company determinations at least annually.
The Council approved the rescission of AIG's designation by a vote of six in favor and three
opposed. Those in favor were Steven T. Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury; Janet L. Yellen,
Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; Keith Noreika, Acting
Comptroller of the Currency; J. Christopher Giancarlo, Chairman of the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission; J. Mark McWatters, Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration;
and Roy Woodall, Independent Member with Insurance Expertise. Those opposed were Richard
