RAM Rating Services Berhad is pleased to announce the appointments of Julie Ng as Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Siew Suet Ming as Chief Rating Officer effective 1 July 2021.
Julie has over 26 years of experience in credit risk management and data analytics, having held several key positions throughout her career at RAM, most recently heading RAM Ratings’ data analytics and risk consulting divisions. She has considerable expertise in corporate and financial analysis, credit risk modelling, Basel advisory, regional bond market research, product development and SME initiatives and has helmed numerous capital market consultancies in the ASEAN region. As Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Julie is tasked with overseeing RAM’s business operations and spearheading the Group’s new business growth and diversification.
Formerly RAM Ratings’ Technical Director, Suet Ming has more than 20 years of experience managing various rating portfolios. She is the architect behind RAM’s default and rating transition studies and leads technical and credit criteria development for RAM Ratings. With extensive experience in rating structured transactions, Suet Ming has a wealth of knowledge in evaluating new asset classes, including sukuk ratings – many of which were ‘firsts’ of their kind globally and in the region. She will also spearhead Islamic Finance initiatives for the Group.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered the landscape for RAM. We see a new world of opportunities where we can reinvent and well position our businesses in the new era. Both Julie and Suet Ming have more than two decades of credit rating experience and are ready to take RAM to the next level. The two senior appointments come at an apt time, placing the Group in a position of strength as we embrace technologies and opportunities in growing our businesses,” said Chris Lee, RAM’s Group Chief Executive Officer.
