American Insurance Group Inc. and some of its directors and officers have agreed to a $725 million settlement to resolve allegations of wide-ranging fraud laid out in a class action suit led by three Ohio pension funds.

Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray said Friday the latest figure will combine with previous AIG settlements to pay about $1 billion to investors, including firefighters, teachers, librarians and other pensioners. He characterized it as the 10th largest settlement of its kind in the U.S.
