Cheyne invests across the capital structure from the senior debt to the equity of corporates and real estate. With an investment philosophy grounded in rigorous fundamental analysis, the firm’s main areas of expertise are real estate debt, social property impact, investment grade corporate credit, strategic value credit, convertible bonds, event driven and equities. Each of the contiguous business areas are run by portfolio managers whom Cheyne believe to be best-of-breed, supported by teams of seasoned experts in their fields. Cheyne’s investment professionals are able to focus purely on investing due to the support of a robust, institutionalised infrastructure.
