American International Group (AIG) has been regulated on a consolidated basis by the New York Federal Reserve Board (NYFRB) since September of 2012.

Two separate agency sources confirmed the change of status, apparently triggered by an initial public offering of AIG stock by the Treasury Department in August that reduced the Treasury holding of AIG stock to 15.9 percent.

AIG is being regulated by the Fed because it operates a small thrift in Wilton, Conn. The thrift was formerly regulated by the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS). But, the OTS was phased out and its authority to charter thrifts and become the consolidated federal regulator of non-banks which operate thrifts was shifted under the Dodd-Frank financial services reform law.
