Founded in 2000, Cheyne Capital is a London-based alternative investment fund manager with approximately $9 billion of assets under management. Cheyne is known for its innovative approach and specialises in identifying and capturing compelling long-term investment opportunities presented by market dislocations and inefficiencies. With an investment philosophy grounded in rigorous fundamental analysis, the firm’s areas of expertise are Real Estate Debt, Impact Real Estate, Strategic Value Credit, Investment-Grade Credit and Equity-Linked investing.
Cheyne Strategic Value Credit focuses on the accelerated sell-down of underperforming (Stage 2) and other “non-core” corporate loans by European banks in response to new regulatory capital and accounting rules. This is a structural opportunity which is distinctly mid-market in nature with average transaction sizes of €10 - 50 million. The strategy focuses predominantly on the purchase of existing corporate debt instruments at discounts to their intrinsic value, and where the path to value realisation is consistent with an expected holding period of between two to four years. The team specialises in providing consensual, holistic capital solutions which may include debt-for-equity swaps or the provision of new money to facilitate debt restructuring processes.
