Hedge fund of the year: Chenavari Investment Managers

With around $1 billion deployed in capital relief trades and the same amount in direct lending, Chenavari has found a sweet spot for investors - but a danger area for regulators

Loic Fery

Regulators and policy-makers should be rolling out the red carpet for hedge funds such as Chenavari Investment Managers. While authorities try to avoid stifling economic growth with their new prudential rules, the firm has completed around 20 bank capital relief deals, representing roughly $1 billion of investor capital and, in theory at least, enabling banks to lend more. The fund also has a fast-growing direct lending portfolio, providing credit to borrowers struggling to find bank loans.
