Matt Hansford

Fund Solutions

Working in the UK Fund Solutions team, I provide a range of flexible financing solutions to private equity funds and fund management teams. I work with a range of primary, secondary and fund of funds based throughout the UK and Europe to provide GP facilities, structured fund bridging, concentrated NAV-based funding and secondary leverage. My aim is to help clients improve returns, optimise balance sheets, create liquidity and facilitate opportunistic transactions.

Background/experience

Before joining Investec, I was a vice president at Barclays working in its subordinated debt team. I originated, structured and executed a range of mezzanine and equity-linked debt for mid-market companies. I started my career on the graduate scheme at Barclays after graduating from Loughborough University with a MEng in Aeronautical Engineering. I also have an AMCT qualification from the Association of Corporate Treasurers.
