A deep subject matter expert, in something so arcane these people are a blessèd relief to everyone else in the firm, just as long as you don't have to sit next to them at dinner, because they do with unalloyed relish a task so tedious no-one but such a ninja can stomach.

Famous types of ninja include the relatively common ISDA ninja, the rarer stock loan ninja, the quite inscrutable tax ninja, and of course the utterly intolerable red-herring ninja.
