The recently launched investment boutique is focusing on fintech and alternative finance.

Quilam Capital, a provider of both debt and equity fintechs and speciality finance platforms, has announced its third deal since it launched late last year. 

Quilam has made a multi-million pound investment into Catfoss Finance, a specialist lender providing Asset Finance into the UK SME market. For more than 17 years Catfoss has been offering supportive, individual and practical financing helping businesses and the people they represent, grow and prosper.

Catfoss provides leases, HP and business loans to companies seeking to raise capital for new or existing assets. 

The investment made by Quilam Capital will help facilitate the next stage of growth for the business by supporting the team’s aspirations to expand their portfolio, invest in people and infrastructure.

Justin Owen, CEO of Catfoss Finance said: “Finding the right partner, and not just a funder, who understands our business was critically important to us for the next phase of Catfoss.  Quilam Capital’s approach has been supportive yet challenging, and we look forward to working closely with them over the next few years”.

Marc Sefton, Co-Founder and Partner of Quilam said: “Catfoss’ track record of lending to SMEs through a number of cycles is first class, and we are delighted to be supporting the company’s strategic goals as they continue to grow.
