Stuart Phillips, Executive Director


Stuart is an executive director of BDO Limited in Guernsey working in audit. His hands-on approach ensures that his clients receive an excellent level of client service, which he is able to augment with his experience gained in a number of jurisdictions.

Stuart leads the audits for a diverse portfolio of clients within the financial services market, particularly the captive insurance and regulated fiduciary sectors, many involving complex group structures. He also provides a range of other assurance services which are often more appropriate for privately held businesses.

In the course of these engagements, Stuart regularly liaises with other BDO firms around the world to ensure that his clients receive a seamless service. Within the Guernsey firm he performs a second-partner role on many of the office’s largest listed and public interest companies.

Stuart has gained almost 25 years’ experience in audit and assurance in a number of jurisdictions, including the USA and Russia. He joined BDO in 2013 through the integration of the Guernsey PKF practice.
