New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his appointment of Anastasia Titarchuk as Interim Chief Investment Officer of the New York State Common Retirement Fund. The Fund’s current CIO Vicki Fuller is retiring the week of July 30 after six years of service.

"My thanks go to Vicki Fuller, during whose tenure the Fund has reached a record annual value and provided annualized investment returns that exceed our target rate," DiNapoli said. "The Fund is fortunate to have Anastasia Titarchuk, who brings a wealth of experience to the position and has proven her skill and knowledge over her years as our Deputy CIO. I have great confidence that she will continue to provide a strong, steady hand to help grow the Fund and protect the retirement security of New York’s more than one million public employees, retirees and their beneficiaries."

"My gratitude goes to Comptroller DiNapoli for his trust and support. We have worked diligently to grow the Fund’s investments on behalf of New York’s dedicated public workforce," Fuller said. "I will miss our inspiring and dedicated investment staff, but I am proud to leave the Fund in a strong position and secure in the knowledge that Anastasia is a talented and thoughtful leader."

"This is an exciting opportunity to advance the great work we have performed for the Fund in recent years," Titarchuk said. "I look forward to continue working with Comptroller DiNapoli and our outstanding staff."
