American International Group Inc is set to appoint Deutsche Bank AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc and Morgan Stanley as joint global coordinators for the planned initial public offering of its Asian life insurance business, AIA, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Wednesday.

On Monday, AIG named Mark Tucker as the new chief executive of American International Assurance (AIA) and formally announced the IPO.

Bankers have previously told Reuters that the AIA IPO could raise about $15 billion.

The sources declined to be identified as the decision had yet to be made public. AIA declined to comment.

Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley did not immediately respond to requests seeking comment, while Goldman Sachs declined to comment.
