Case Study: AIG
American International Group, Inc. (AIG) is a leading global insurance organization serving commercial, institutional, and individual customers through one of the most extensive worldwide property-casualty networks of any insurer.
AIG's Global Finance Centers, established in 2014, are comprised of a dynamic, cross-functional team of talented finance professionals, committed to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of key financial processes and supporting the mission to drive and protect value across all of AIG.
