Federal Reserve makes billion dollar rescue loan for AIG

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

The US Federal Reserve has agreed to lend up to US$85 billion (A$105 billion) to AIG as an emergency loan for the battling insurance giant.

The central bank decided to make the loan after determining that a “disorderly failure” of the insurer could add to “already significant levels of financial market fragility” and lead to higher borrowing costs, reduced household wealth and a materially weaker economy.

The loan facility, which has a 24 month term, is designed to help AIG sell parts of its business in an “orderly manner, with the least possible disruption” to the economy.
