St Helier, Jersey

9 August 2017

We have a growing number of members across the Channel Islands.

With such a presence in the Channel Islands, there are many thriving local communities in Guernsey and Jersey. ICAS members regularly meet up to keep in touch and for hosting networking events. Why not meet up with fellow members and help to further enhance a leading professional community.

Committee Chairs

If you are in the Channel Islands, why not get in touch with one of the community chairs, who are a point of contact for all member enquiries and act as ambassadors in helping to promote the ICAS brand.

Roy McGregor (Guernsey Chair)

Roy McGregor Roy qualified with Deloitte Haskins & Sells (now PwC) in their Glasgow office in 1983 and shortly thereafter transferred with the firm to Hong Kong then subsequently Singapore and Bangkok before leaving the firm to jointly head up Deutsche Morgan Grenfell's corporate advisory business in Thailand.

On returning to the UK after 12 years in Asia, Roy joined Coutts Group in a senior risk role before moving into a business line role to run the UK bank's tax, trust and IFA activities. Leaving Coutts following a restructuring around the RBS acquisition of NatWest, Roy joined Societe General/Hambros as a board director for 4 years. Credit Suisse approached him to take on the COO role in the UK private bank which he held for 2 years prior to moving with them to run their Channel Island franchise from which he retired at the end of 2016.
