Asian insurer AIA beats bailout and lists in Hong Kong

Two years ago the US government bailed out the insurance giant AIG, in what became the biggest rescue of the global recession.

Fears about the firm's collapse caused hundreds of policy holders to queue outside the offices of its Asian subsidiary AIA.

The unit survived and is now destined to be spun off and listed in Hong Kong.
