Chartis Sees $5B Underwriting Loss On Reserve Charge; S&P Lowers Rating

While American International Group reported a 2011 fourth-quarter net profit of more than $11 billion, its property and casualty subsidiary Chartis came in with an underwriting loss of $5.2 billion, primarily because of its reserve charge.

In February, New York-based insurer AIG announced it would take a $4.1 billion charge in the fourth quarter to bolster its reserves. The company then reported its fourth-quarter and year-end results, showing a greater underwriting loss than last year.
