AIA to Be Sold?

AIA's US parent AIG Inc was extended a lifeline by the Federal Reserve, a loan of US$85 billion for a 24-month term. In return, the Fed will own 79.9 per cent of the ailing insurance giant.

Companies named as possible buyers of AIG assets include Prudential, Munich Re and Allianz SE. So, are we really seeing the fall of AIA?
