Alternative Lending

ThinCats, the online market for secured loans, has announced that it will be holding a second conference later this year.   

The event will be held at the Royal Institution in the Faraday Lecture Theatre in the afternoon of the 7th December.

At their last conference in February over 130 people attended and since then the number of members has doubled. The online loan company received a great response after the last event and so expects the turnout to be even bigger this time.

ThinCats.com is an online market for secured business loans operating throughout the UK who look to provide a serious alternative to high street banks by linking experienced investors to established business borrowers.

Borrowers are able to loan between £50k and £3m at fixed competitive rates from 6 months to 5 years while lenders set their own interest rates and make their own investment decisions.

At the event in December there will be an opportunity to meet the ThinCats staff, directors, sponsors and other members as well as a few borrowers. There will be a number of topics up for discussion, which include:

  • ThinCats future developments
  • The new platform software
  • The impact of regulation
  • Distress, default, recovery and risk
  • The role of sponsor
  • There will also be a Q&A at the end to discuss any other topics of interest.
     

The conference will run from 12:30pm-4:30pm and will include light refreshments. It will be followed by a drinks reception. Although lunch will not be provided there is a restaurant and café at the Royal Institution.

As places for conference at limited, due to the capacity of the Faraday Lecture Theatre being 250, tickets will be going on a first come first serve basis and will cost £15.

ThinCats are looking to put this conference online for the people who are unable to attend. If you are one of those people you should let ThinCats know as soon as possible as they will need at least 20 people to do this.
