Ryan Labs Asset Management, which offers fixed income strategies to institutional investors was looking for a strong finance and operations consultant to provide business support services for an internal project. They needed someone to support the review of the Company’s operational and control procedures in order to become SOC certified. This person needed to have experience in fixed income securities markets, back office operations, Bloomberg’s trading modules, and SQL databases.
Within one week of Ryan Labs posting their project on Graphite, they connected with and hired Lisa T., a Ph.D economist and former Director at Grant Thornton who met all of their criteria. Lisa had experience in fixed income where she rated corporate and RMBS for S&P along with back office operations experience doing functional analysis of 5-10 trading firms and a trading platform. Lisa studied computer science and had been programming and doing database work as a finance professional for over 20 years. She subsequently had extensive hands-on experience preparing documents and reports for regulatory compliance throughout her career.
