Amy Ruth Christabel James has taken a leading role within RiskSpan as an innovator who is automating a segment of housing finance that has traditionally been mired in redundant, manual processes. James has developed several financial, reporting and MBS analytical tools using platforms, including Excel/VBA, INTEX, and Bloomberg. Her specific expertise with INTEX (an analytical platform for structuring mortgage-backed securities) also extends to its CDI Scripting Language for structured products. This broad knowledge base affords James an uncommon ability to effectively train and lead others in end-to-end valuations of MBS and other structured products.
What is one habit that has helped you succeed?
“The one habit that has helped me succeed is my absolute infatuation with pursuing excellence in everything I am tasked with! I have spent the vast majority of my professional career working remotely, which meant I did not have the comfort of walking over to the next cubicle if I ran into issues, was unfamiliar with a topic or did not know a subject! My thirst to excel professionally and in every task often led me wanting to understand topics conceptually and spending time reading, researching, and learning it in its entirety and not merely skimming the surface on it.”
