DealCloud’s own Matthew Hardcastle was recently featured in Unquote’s “In conversation with…” series, which bring capital markets professionals in-depth interviews with players from various corners of the industry.
Matthew Hardcastle joined DealCloud in July as client development director; but many dealmakers, especially in London, are more familiar with him in his previous life as assistant director at Inflexion Private Equity (now a DealCloud client). Having joined the mid-cap GP in 2014, he worked on deal sourcing and execution, strategic consulting and post-deal value creation. Mr. Hardcastle’s eight years of private equity experience brings expertise to the firm in areas such as deal sourcing and execution, strategic consulting, and po st-deal value creation. At Inflexion, worked across deal origination, execution, fundraising, and value creation as well as led Inflexion’s implementation of DealCloud that now underpins these key activities. This hands-on knowledge will help inform client strategy and support for EMEA capital markets clients moving forward.
Drawing from his experience at Inflexion and recent work with DealCloud, Matthew spoke with Unquote about how GPs can best leverage technology to streamline dozens of processes and ultimately unlock considerable value, how AI-driven data analysis is closer than we may imagine, the LP demands driving the push for more tech adoption, and more.
