ePrivateclient published its 2019 Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35 list today which features Josh Payne, audit manager at BDO in Guernsey.

The publication’s list aims to identify and recognise the rising stars of the private client adviser community in the islands and provides the opportunity for the 35 women and 35 men selected to meet and network.


Mr Payne manages BDO’s private wealth sector team in Guernsey, overseeing the delivery of assurance services to private wealth sector clients. Mr Payne has specialised in the provision of assurance solutions to trust structures in the Channel Islands in both contentious and non-contentious settings. He manages assurance engagements for a broad cross-section of family office and private trust structures with a variety of asset classes such as investment holdings, real estate and other SPVs.


In addition to his in-depth experience in UK GAAP, IFRS, ISAs and other assurance frameworks, Mr Payne manages five qualified team members, ensuring that their own professional skills are developed to marry with their own career aspirations and with BDO.


“It’s very rewarding to be recognised among my peers for my work in the island’s private client sector, having moved to BDO here in 2014.  BDO’s support is enabling me to pursue a fulfilling and fascinating career here in Guernsey, so to be recognised in this way means a great deal to me”.
