ESF Capital


ESF Capital is the majority shareholder of ThinCats. It also carries out the role of Sponsor in certain circumstances:

  • Assisting business professionals such as finance brokers, solicitors and accountants who do not want to undertake the full role of Sponsor, but who are helping their corporate clients raise loan capital
  • Working alongside potential new Sponsors until they are both familiar with the process, and ThinCats is confident enough to permit them to undertake the role of Sponsor without this support

In both cases, ESF works with borrower and introducer to structure the loan agreement, prepare the documentation and answer lenders’ questions. We also carry out loan monitoring and reporting after drawdown, just as any other Sponsor would.

ESF’s Sponsor team has considerable experience in credit and business banking, and brings the highest standards of institutional finance to SME lending.
