July 20 (Reuters) – The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has guaranteed Morgan Stanley a global coordinator’s role in any initial public offering (IPO) of American International Group  units, documents made public on the New York Fed website show.

According to the documents, Morgan Stanley will earn percentage fees from the NY Fed if AIG sells any of its businesses, in addition to an initial $4 million payment as an advisory fee and $2.5 million per quarter.

Morgan Stanley will also bill the New York Fed separately for expenses, including document production and travel costs, the bank said on the website.  The bank must get permission for expenses beyond $5 million, according to the documents.

AIG has already begun the process for an IPO of American International Assurance Co Ltd early next year, selecting Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank AG as global coordinators for the offering.
