Mr. Malloy assumes the position from New York Life President John Kim, who has served as CIO since 2010. Mr. Malloy reports to Mr. Kim. In recognition of his expanded role, Mr. Malloy also joins New York Life’s Executive Management Committee (EMC), which is headed by New York Life Chairman and CEO Ted Mathas.
“The chief investment officer role is especially critical in a mutual insurance company given our long-term financial orientation and singular focus on being there for our policy owners whenever they need us,” said Mr. Kim. “Tony and the investment teams he oversees have performed masterfully in the face of relentlessly low interest rates and volatile equity markets. We congratulate him on this achievement and look confidently forward to his stewardship of the company’s General Account.”
