August 8, 2019

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his appointment of Anastasia Titarchuk as chief investment officer of the New York State Common Retirement Fund. Titarchuk has served as the Fund’s interim CIO since July 2018.

“Anastasia Titarchuk’s leadership and talents as a skilled investor are reflected in the success of our state’s pension fund,” DiNapoli said. “She joined the state pension fund eight years ago and earned a reputation for delivering results, making her an outstanding candidate for CIO. Through prudent management, the Fund has maintained its status as one of the nation’s strongest and best funded and I know that Anastasia will continue to uphold high standards for the pension system’s 1.1 million members, retirees and their beneficiaries.”

“I am grateful for the trust Comptroller DiNapoli has placed in me over the years,” Titarchuk said. “Working with the Fund’s staff has been a wonderful and enjoyable experience and I’m excited to continue our partnership and grow the Fund’s value in the months and years to come.”

Titarchuk was born in Moscow and moved to the U.S. as a teenager. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Yale University with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics. Over the course of two decades she worked in a variety of roles on Wall Street, including emerging markets, interest rates trading and equity derivatives marketing. She joined DiNapoli’s office in 2011 as part of the Fund’s ARS team and served as Deputy CIO under then-CIO Vicki Fuller. She was appointed interim-CIO in July 2018.
