AIG Life’s comments

Adam Winslow, AIG Life CEO, said: “Taking out protection insurance to look after your family is a truly selfless act so when life takes a terrible turn, you want to feel that behind the ‘faceless’ insurance company there are some friendly experts who will be supportive every step of the way.

“Paying claims is what we’re here for. It’s why we exist. But offering access to a global second medical opinion service such as Best Doctors is our way of providing customers and their families with as much backing as possible, regardless of whether it relates to a claim. I find it particularly rewarding when I see the extra services we provide are making a real difference to people’s lives.”
