About Us

Tosca Debt Capital (TDC) is a £110m lending vehicle specifically designed for regional SMEs and smaller corporate businesses seeking the investment they need to enter the next phase of growth.

Capital is flexible and tailored to our clients’ requirements, including cash preservation features, ensuring value is delivered to shareholders.

Unlike similar investors, the team is based outside of London and committed to building relationships and supporting the regional market. We’re empowered to execute deals and sanction credit in short timescales to support those businesses that are currently under-serviced in private debt financing.

Based in Manchester, TDC is led by a team of portfolio managers with nearly 40 years of combined credit risk management experience, headed up by the founders of EY’s Debt Advisory business, former Partner Gary Davison and Richard Williams.
