Thinc lending breaks through 4bn barrier

Thinc Group’s mortgage lending topped the 4bn level last year.

The firm puts the growth down to its whole of market approach and its advisers’ proactive stance with clients.

Thinc says it has seen rapid growth in the last 18 months by investing in events such as its buy-to-let roadshows, specialist seminars and national development meetings.

High-net-worth business has exceeded the 1bn mark and Thinc expects the growth to continue this year, with further acquisitions planned in the mortgage and IFA sectors.

Chief executive Simon Chamberlain says: “This is another milestone in the Thinc story. Breaking through the 4bn mark is a real achievement but this is just the start and our mortgage operation will continue to expand during 2007 and beyond, supp-orting our wealth management clients in providing a one-stop shop for all their needs.”
