At ThinCats we believe talent, creativity and hard work should be the drivers of success for UK businesses, not access to funding.

There are around 400,000 mid-sized SMEs accounting for more than 25% of UK GDP. However, they often struggle to access the finance they need. These businesses deserve better. ThinCats exists to fill this gap and we are proud to be opening up new sources of long-term funding to help these businesses thrive.

By combining the latest in data analytics with traditional lending skills and a regional network of business finance specialists, we provide funding from £1m up to £15m for businesses looking to grow organically and/or through acquisition.

Although we offer asset backed loans, cashflow lending accounts for approximately 75% of new funding and is particularly suited to high growth businesses.
