Bartlett Actuarial Group Becomes Risk International Actuarial Consulting
New name integrates actuarial team into global leader’s full risk management service offering
AKRON, OH (July 27, 2017) – Risk International, a leading risk and benefits management firm, announced that Bartlett Actuarial Group will be renamed Risk International Actuarial Consulting, effective August 1. The announcement was made by Todd Miller, president and CEO of Risk International.
Bartlett Actuarial Group has actually been a part of Risk International since it was acquired in 2015. However, the company had continued to operate under the Bartlett name until now. The name change is part of an overall rebranding effort for the actuarial group which was founded under the Bartlett name in Charleston, SC in 2002.
“We believe it is in our clients’ best interests to go to market under a single brand name,” explained Miller. “Many of our own clients were not aware that Risk International offered actuarial services, but this rebranding initiative will help to cross-promote actuarial services with our other service groups, all of which are focused on creating stronger bottom lines for our clients.”
The actuarial services team will remain intact with its primary office in Charleston and retain all of its phone numbers. An updated website and e-mail addresses will become effective by the end of July.
“We are excited to officially become part of the Risk International brand,” said Brian Johnson, who leads actuarial services at Risk International. “The brand enjoys a strong reputation for delivering value to its wide array of clients, and its commitment to high-quality service mirrors what the Bartlett name has long stood for in the market.”
Risk International actuaries function fully independently from the insurance industry to provide unbiased, reliable and straightforward analytics. According to Johnson, the company’s success and continued growth are largely due to its unique, highly personalized approach. With no administrative layers or automated processes, Risk International clients deal directly with highly experienced actuaries who have been trained to communicate honestly and simply in order to take the guesswork out of what is often considered a very complicated process.
In addition to actuarial services, Risk International provides bottom line-focused risk management, benefits advisory and claims services for middle-market and Fortune 500 clients.
According to Miller, the company is on track to complete another year characterized by double-digit growth. He credits the actuarial team with contributing to the company’s record growth over the past two years.
Headquartered in Fairlawn (just outside Akron), Risk International also has offices in Charlotte and Charleston in the U.S., along with offices in London and Ho Chi Minh City. It is ranked as one of the top three risk management companies in the U.S. by Business Insurance Magazine.
