(Reuters) - Insurer American International Group Inc (NYSE:AIG) said on Tuesday that September would be the next window for the delayed initial public offering (IPO) of its life and retirement unit.

AIG, one of the world's biggest commercial insurers, on Monday blamed market volatility for the delay, becoming the latest company to rethink IPO plans in the face of runaway inflation, rising interest rates and the Russia-Ukraine war.

The unit filed for its offering in March and AIG, which had first announced the move in 2020, planned to complete the listing by the end of June, subject to market conditions.

In deciding whether to launch the IPO in May or June, AIG had said it weighed several variables including equity market conditions and particularly the trading values of companies in the life and retirement sector.

"We believe this is an attractive business and did not want to execute a transaction that would be detrimental to stakeholders in the long run," Chief Executive Officer Peter Zaffino told analysts on a call.

Barring any unforeseen external events, "we remain ready to execute on the IPO, subject to regulatory approvals and market conditions. And the next window will be in September", he added.

Last year, AIG sold a 9.9% stake in the unit to private equity firm Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX) Inc for $2.2 billion.

The unit is set to be renamed Corebridge Financial Inc when it goes public.
