People & Business: Back together

ING BARINGS took another step in the rebuilding process following the traumas of last year's emerging markets meltdown, by poaching Alan Craft from ANZ Investment Bank to be its managing director and head of risk management.

ING Barings recently hired David Robins from UBS to put its UK corporate business back together after a number of key defections last autumn. Mr Craft, 51, has plenty of experience. Before ANZ he was with Kleinwort Benson for over 9 years and Chase Manhattan for 16 years.
