Cheyne Capital Management (UK) LLP Launches UCITS Umbrella Fund
Cheyne Capital Management (UK) LLP announces the launch of the Cheyne Select UCITS Fund Plc,
a UCITS III compliant umbrella fund. Cheyne is the investment manager to the fund with JP Morgan in
Ireland acting as Administrator and Custodian. The Cheyne Select Convertibles Fund is the first in a
series of classes that Cheyne will be rolling out over the next year.
Convertibles are interest-paying securities, similar to corporate bonds, in which investors have the
option to exchange the securities for a predetermined number of shares in the relevant company. The
hybrid nature of the securities offers investors advantages particular to both bonds and equities. Like
bonds, they offer the potential for interest income and downside protection and like equities,
convertibles have the potential for capital appreciation.
By placing these securities within a UCITS fund, Cheyne will offer a wide range of investors exposure
to this asset class within the new UCITS framework. UCITS legislation, established under a European
Directive, regulates risk, liquidity, diversification, eligible asset constraints and counterparty exposure.
Jonathan Lourie, co-founder and Chief Executive said: "With over 14 years of experience in
convertible securities investing, we are delighted to be adding to Cheyne's diverse range of product
offerings with the launch of this new convertibles UCITS product. It represents an attractive
opportunity for a wider range of investors to access this exciting strategy."
