5 minutes with… Phil Westcott, co-founder and CEO of Filament Syfter

by Matthias Plötz 24 May 2023

The Drawdown (TDD): First things first, what does Filament do?

Phil Westcott (PW): We partner with private equity firms to build their data infrastructure, which sits at the heart of their investment strategy. Our platform Syfter provides the engine of proprietary deal-sourcing and marketing intelligence that we craft for our clients.

A GP’s investment strategy is its IP. But they are under increasing pressure to develop a competitive advantage through digitalisation, which is where we come in.
