Peter will explain the Third Sector landscape in the Bailiwick, the law relating to charities and how it is likely to change, and what good governance for charities and NPOs looks like 

Peter has a degree in Economics from Southampton University, worked for what is now PwC for the first 9 years of his career, in Southampton and New York and joined Rothschild in London in 1985. Rothschild asked Peter to come to Guernsey in 1989 for three years as Finance Director of what is now Rothschild Bank International, and was promoted to Managing Director in 1998. He retired from that post at the end of 2012, and has been engaged in Non-executive work with banks in Guernsey and Luxembourg since then. Since January 2016 he has been nonexecutive Chairman of Butterfield Bank Guernsey Limited.

After retirement he was asked to become Chairman of the Association of Guernsey Charities. At the time, to his eternal shame, he had not been engaged in any charity work of note, but after nearly six years working with Charities in his AGC role he now has a very good understanding of the Third Sector, its issues and needs, and more importantly the benefit they bring to our community. He has been heavily engaged with Policy & Resources in developing a measured and workable proposal for new Charity Law (which he will talk about), and in attempting to educate Policy& Resources about the value that the Third Sector brings to our community, something he believes they find it hard to acknowledge, and to persuade them to implement Gift Aid here. It would be fair to say that he has fallen out with both the senior politicians and the senior civil servants on this subject, so he believes he has been fairly balanced in this campaign. P&R has however agreed to implement a Social Investment Commission, an idea Peter first proposed three years ago.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, and a car and F1 enthusiast.
