MassMutual’s Anastasio On 2023 Market Risks And Opportunities

Andrea Anastasio, Head of Investment Management Solutions at MassMutual Investments joined Julie Cooling, Founder & CEO, RIA Channel to discuss her 2023 market outlook and MassMutual’s best-of-breed manager approach. 

2022 was the perfect storm of inflation, rising rates, economic uncertainty and geopolitical disruption. Heading into 2023, volatility and diversification challenges continue to be top of mind for advisors. Although recent reports indicate inflation maybe starting to slowdown, Anastasio expects rate hikes to continue in the nearterm, pointing to opportunities in short duration assets and floating rate notes. On the equities side, value has historically outperformed growth during periods of rising rates and inflation, explains Anastasio.   

MassMutual Investments’ multi-manager approach delivers a comprehensive institutional-quality investment platform to advisors and their clients. “Our open-architecture platform allows us to find what we believe are the best managers,” says Anastasio. MassMutual partners with over 20 sub-advisers and seeks specialty managers with a disciplined investment approach and long-term track record.
