The firm launched its first fund in 2000 and today specializes in Real Estate Debt, Social Property Impact, Corporate Credit, High Yield, Convertible Bonds, Event Driven Investing and Equities. It is one of the largest alternative asset managers in Europe[1] with mandates from pension funds, foundations, family offices, and funds of funds.

The Cheyne group currently employs approximately 150 people with its offices in London, Switzerland, Bermuda, Singapore and New York.

The firm's co-founder, Stuart Fiertz, was a member of the 14-person Hedge Fund Working Group, which devised best practice policies regarding financial valuation, transparency, and risk management.[2][3] Those guidelines evolved into what is now the Hedge Fund Standards Board, a self-regulatory body of which Cheyne is a member.[4] It is also a member of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA).[5] In 2003, the company signed a three year contract with Mark-it Partners for the daily supply of credit derivatives swap data.[6]

It was founded in 1999 by Jonathan Lourie and Stuart Fiertz who are currently the CEO and President of Cheyne Capital Management (UK) LLP respectively.[7] At its launch it was authorised and regulated by the U.K. Financial Services Authority (FSA).
