THINCATS is the latest peer-to-peer lender to revamp its website and logo, after a period of investment into the business.
The Midlands-based firm, which originates small business loans, has changed its logo from the word ThinCats to a simple ‘T’, although it has retained its black and white colour theme.
The website is also in-keeping with the black and white theme, with clearly delineated areas for investors, businesses and their advisers and brokers.
ThinCats is also planning to build up its information resources on the website for investors.
“Our new look has come about after a huge amount of development and growth within ThinCats,” said the firm in a blog post on its website late on Thursday. “Therefore, we are proud to unveil the new ThinCats and are very excited about the year ahead.”
It has been a busy few months for the lender, which is majority owned by investment firm ESF Capital. It recently announced the conclusion of a £200m institutional funding round to enable it to scale up its lending, and earlier this week it unveiled a new partnership with Hennik Edge to channel £100m to manufacturers.
“We wanted a look that reflected the freedom to research, discuss and select a broad range of loans for our investors, plus the freedom from the layers of bureaucracy, legacy processes and high overheads that impact upon the service and proposition to businesses,” said ThinCats, referring to the website rebrand.
“In turn, we give today’s entrepreneurial businesses freedom to seize opportunities, realise their potential, maximise productivity, grow their revenues and expand into new areas.”
ThinCats recently announced that it was pushing back the launch of its Innovative Finance ISA to January because building the required systems to administer investments had taken longer than expected.
It is also introducing a lender fee for new investors, equivalent to a one per cent reduction in annual returns, effective from 1 January 2018.
