Our approach to SME funding

Our process aims to achieve the best deal for your clients engaging advisers every step of the way
 

We have a pioneering approach to funding using award-winning SME data: big data and intelligent analysis driving early indication of credit appetite and pricing

Our Innovative Risk Grading model looks at credit quality and security, expressed as Stars and Padlocks

StarThinCats’ proprietary credit model combines market and company financial data with proprietary non-financial data to provide a credit grade of 1 (weak) - 5 (strong) Stars.

padlockThinCats’ security grade reflects available security combining balance sheet with predictability of cash flows to provide a security grade 1 (limited asset cover) - 5 (significant asset cover)

Personal initial review We are relationship driven with a transactional focus.

We work closely with businesses and their advisers through our regional credit teams for an early assessment of funding proposals. Deal forums provide further direct interaction with Credit – a grown-up approach engaging you in the process. 

As an SME that has grown from regional roots in the East Midlands, ThinCats recognises the benefits of having relevant local expertise. It’s why we’ve created a regional business development team to support businesses and advisers at every stage.

Pragmatic detailed assessment.svgTransactions as individual as the company’s business.

Looking at each deal on its own merits distinguishing loans between:

  • Asset backed - we consider all types of security to provide collateral
  • Cashflow – we view stable and diverse cashflows as a positive attribute for lending

Flexible but robust in our credit analysis to provide consistency and certainty of funding.
