Pre-tax income within the mortgage guaranty business jumped to $77 million from $51 million and was also higher than $44 million one year prior.

At parent AIG, $21.569 billion in mortgages and other receivables were on the books. Holdings grew from $20.765 billion three months earlier and $19.488 billion 12 months earlier.
