AIG trims loss in Q1

Contributing heavily to the loss was a $1.9 billion charge for restructuring costs related to the wind-down of its controversial Financial Products Group (AIGFP), whose losses on credit derivatives ravaged the company to the point of government intervention.

In the wind-down effort, AIGFP has reduced the notional amount of its derivatives portfolio to $1.5 trillion at March 31, from $2.7 trillion at December 31, 2007. The company also reported $2.5 billion in investment losses attributed to market disruption and $1.1 billion in tax-related charges in the quarter.
