PwC has strengthened its pan-Channel Island asset management capabilities with the triple Director level promotions of Lisa McClure and James de Veulle in Jersey and Joanne Peacegood in Guernsey.

Based in PwC's Guernsey office, Joanne Peacegood joined PwC in Guernsey as a trainee accountant in 1999, and undertook a secondment to the Toronto office of PwC Canada in 2005, returning to Guernsey in 2007. She works across a range of financial services clients, with a specific focus on alternative investment funds including structured products, private equity structures and litigation funds, whilst she also has experience of listings on the Main London Stock Exchange. Joanne sits on the Guernsey International Funds Association education sub-committee.

Born in Bristol, Joanne is married to Adrian, with whom she has two daughters. In her spare time, she enjoys keeping fit, playing hockey and running. She is currently training for the ‘3 Peaks Challenge' to raise funds for local and overseas charities.

Lisa McClure originally joined PwC in Guernsey. In 2008, following a secondment in Sydney with PwC Australia, she returned to the Channel Islands, basing herself in Jersey. Working with clients in a broad range of industries including real estate, shipping, banking and insurance, Lisa has specialist expertise in the real estate industry and in her new senior role will take over the lead role in the PwC CI Real Estate practice. A regular presenter at various forums including Jersey Funds Association and client seminars, Lisa sits on the technical committee of the Jersey Society of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Educated in Northern Ireland, Lisa is married to Scott and welcomed their son Ethan into their family in January this year. Outside work, Lisa enjoys spending time with her family and travelling.

James de Veulle supports a wide variety of assurance and advisory services in Jersey and further afield. He joined PwC's legacy firm Coopers & Lybrand in London as a trainee accountant, becoming part of PwC UK's London Banking & Capital Markets group for nearly a decade, before returning to Jersey in 2007, spending four years at KPMG in the Channel Islands. He re-joined PwC in 2011, supporting clients across a range of financial services sectors, predominantly in private equity and alternative funds. James has been working on an international Anti-Money Laundering assignment in Poland and the United States this year and is an active member of the Jersey Funds Association committee.

Educated in Jersey and the UK, James spends much of his free time with his three children, whilst he also enjoys travelling and a range of sports, particularly sailing and rugby.

Steve Le Page, Senior Partner, PwC Channel Islands, said:

“I'm delighted to be able to recognise Joanne, Lisa and James' specialist knowledge, commitment and contribution to PwC Channel Islands through these Director level promotions. Their combined expertise adds real strength to our leadership team across Jersey and Guernsey at a time when the local alternative funds industry is facing a number of significant market and regulatory challenges. By drawing on their knowledge and far-reaching networks, they will be able to identify opportunities and threats for the sector locally, and work with clients to find solutions to ensure they remain competitive.”
