THE UK leasing subsidiary of ING Group, ING Car Lease, has appointed Diarmuid Fahy to oversee its recently-launched risk management service Risk Assist.

Fahy said: ‘I am delighted to join the team and continue the excellent start of Risk Assist, which has been very well received.
‘The legal, financial and social responsibilities of companies should not be underestimated and we will ensure that our clients are able to protect themselves with a structured risk management programme.’
