The company highlighted that cryptocurrencies are "increasingly becoming part of the financial landscape."

Daken Vanderburg, Head of Investments at MMLIS, said that the broker saw a "growing demand" from its clients to gain bitcoin exposure.
"This offering with NYDIG is yet another step to continue to expand our product shelf with the goal of ensuring our financial professionals and clients have the tools they need to continue to build broadly diversified portfolios," Vanderburg added.
In December last year, MassMutual invested $100 million in bitcoin for its general investment account.
