Alun Thomas

Regional Manager, New Investments

Alun is an experienced senior banker specialising in structuring larger and more complex debt, equity and mezzanine investments. Based at Finance Wales’ Llanelli office, he works with SMEs throughout Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire and Swansea.  He has a broad range of experience in corporate finance, structured finance, government lending, invoice discounting and factoring in addition to turnaround funding/management.

A former director of business support at Barclays, Alun joined Finance Wales in 2013. He has over 30 years’ experience of lending, structuring and managing debt and working with SMEs. His career also includes stints at ABN AMRO, Lloyds TSB and RBS.

Finance Wales has more capital to invest in a wider range of Welsh SMEs than ever before and with the Wales SME Investment Fund it can now invest in SMEs selling goods and services to consumers. It has already invested in numerous local businesses and I’m keen to ensure that even more of them make the most of investment from Finance Wales.
