American International Group is defending a sales meeting it held at a luxury resort in Arizona, saying it was a necessary training tool.
ABC News initially reported on the Phoenix meeting hours after the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department announced an infusion of another $40 billion into the ailing insurance giant.
AIG officials maintain the meeting held last week was a legitimate event that helped train about 150 independent financial advisers.
A spokesman adds that while some previous AIG-sponsored events may have been questionable, this one was needed to help the company move forward in paying back taxpayers backing the government-sponsored bailout package.
