American International Group Inc. has listed dozens of counterparties that have been helped by U.S. government efforts to shore up its own operations.
In a report that describes the use of about $96 billion of the aid allocated from Sept. 16, 2008, to Dec. 31, 2008, AIG, New York, identifies U.S. and European banks and investment banks as the biggest indirect beneficiaries.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York began working with AIG in September 2008 to set up Maiden Lane III L.L.C., a Delaware corporation that is using federal backing and some AIG capital to unwind credit default swaps, guaranteed investment agreement obligations, and securities lending transactions arranged by AIG’s AIG Financial Products Corp. unit and other AIG units.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc., New York, has received almost $13 billion in support as a result of the rescue efforts, AIG says.
The Goldman Sachs total includes $5.6 billion in payments relating to the company’s role as a credit default swaps counterparty, $4.8 billion in payments relating to its role as a securities lending counterparty, and $2.5 billion in credit default swaps collateral postings, AIG says.
