Cheyne European Event Driven Fund: Cheyne Capital Management

Eleventh European Performance Awards 2011

The European Perfomance Awards 2011

The Cheyne European Event Driven Fund's mandate is hard event driven with a focus on mergers and acquisitions (M&A). Within this mandate 75% of the fund's portfolio is concentrated on Europe and the other 25% is focused elsewhere. Portfolio manager Simon Davies underlines that Asia is left alone as the fund's team has no specialist knowledge of the region.

The 25% of the fund's mandate to be invested freely typically focuses on trading in the US, South Africa and Australia for historical reasons
