Once set on becoming a dancer, Marie Chandoha's initiation into the finance world was an article about mortgage-backed securities sent to her by a friend. "I was fascinated," Chandoha recalls.
Her curiosity eventually led to a job as a mortgage-backed securities analyst on the floor at Morgan Stanley. "In no time, I was hooked," she says. "I moved to the asset management side of the business mid-way through my career to be closer to the end client and help investors achieve their financial goals."
