Risk solutions company York spins off actuarial unit

Risk solutions provider York has spun off its actuarial business, formerly known as “Bickmore, a York subsidiary,” it announced this week.

The Jersey City-based company said that, effective April 1, the independent entity will be known as Bickmore Actuarial. It will be led by Mike Harrington and continue to serve York clients, as a priority York partner for actuary services.

“Given the unique nature of their business, having Bickmore Actuarial operate as an independent group will eliminate any potential perceived conflicts and open up new growth opportunities,” York Chairman and CEO Thomas Warsop said in a prepared statement. “I am confident Mike and the team will thrive, and we look forward to collaborating.”
