Cheyne Capital Management (UK) has launched of the Cheyne Select Ucits Fund, a Ucits III compliant umbrella fund.

Cheyne is the investment manager to the fund with JP Morgan in Ireland acting as administrator and xustodian.

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.
 
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, says: "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."
 
Chris Goekjian (pictured), chief investment officer, adds: "Convertible bonds provide an appealing combination of upside potential and downside protection and are a compelling asset class for diversification in any asset allocation model."
 
The fund is regulated by the Irish Financial Services Regulatory Authority.
