The International Stock Exchange (TISE) has announced the appointment of Julia Chapman as a Non-Executive Director of its parent company.

Ms Chapman, who is based in Jersey, has more than 30 years’ experience in the investment fund and capital markets sector. She is a solicitor qualified in England & Wales and Jersey.

Ms Chapman joined the Board of The International Stock Exchange Group Limited (the Group) with effect from Friday 31 March.

Anderson Whamond, Chair of the Group, said: “I am delighted to welcome Julia to the Board. Julia’s expertise within the corporate services sector and significant experience as a non-executive director further enhances the skills and experience of the Board as we look to broaden the Group’s services over the coming years. I look forward to Julia working with myself, our fellow Directors, including our CEO, Cees Vermaas, to develop and deliver the Group’s strategy to diversify and scale up the business to sustain future growth.”

Having trained with Simmons & Simmons in London, she moved to Jersey to work for Mourant du Feu & Jeune (now Mourant) and became a partner in 1999 before then being appointed general counsel to the firm’s fund administration division.

Following acquisition by State Street in April 2010, Julia was appointed European Senior Counsel where she led a team of legal and corporate secretarial professionals responsible for internal legal affairs and governance in State Street’s alternative investment services division.

In July 2012, Julia left State Street to co-found Altair Partners, focusing on the independent provision of directorship and governance services to a small number of alternative investment fund vehicles.

Ms Chapman said: “I am hugely pleased to be appointed to TISE’s Group Board. This is an innovative, dynamic business with a very clear and exciting plan to expand the range of services it provides to the market and I look forward to assisting in the development and execution of the strategy together with my fellow Board members.”

TISE has also announced that Stuart Turner, who has completed a nine year term as a Non-Executive Director of the Company, will be stepping down from the Board at the close of the Company’s 2023 Annual General Meeting.

Mr Whamond added: “Together with my fellow Board members, I would like to place on record our thanks to Stuart for his support and guidance and we wish him well for the future.”
