The History

AIG* and the New Zealand Rugby Union are both global organizations with long histories – AIG’s roots date back to 1919, the All Blacks’ well over 100 years.  The All Blacks’ winning tradition and reputation for integrity and performance have endeared the team to millions of fans around the world, and underline attributes in AIG’s own heritage and culture.

AIG and the All Blacks’ unique histories have a number of parallels. We have both encountered adversity, we know how to face difficult situations head-on, and we are strong and focused on the future. Our reputation of tenacity mirrors the All Blacks’ culture – which is exemplified in their history and extraordinary winning record.

As AIG and the All Blacks each have their own rich heritage, we are now bonded by a partnership that has come at an optimal time for our organizations.  Our new partnership places us on a shared path for the future.
