ThinCats wins Non-bank Lender of the year at the Thames Valley Deal Awards

With awards season in full swing, ThinCats was delighted to be named ‘Non-bank Lender of the Year’ at the 2021 Thames Valley Deal awards ceremony held in November. 

We are honoured to be recognized for our funding in the region, not only in the last 18 months but also pre - and post COVID. It was great event and fantastic opportunity to reconnect with the finance community in person and see well deserved winners and nominees at the ceremony. 

Mid-sized SMEs will play a critical role in delivering the UK’s post-pandemic economic growth and we are excited to support many more businesses across the rest of the UK.
