2009

The Cheyne Real Estate Group was formed in 2009 to address the severe dislocation in the European real estate debt universe brought about by the financial crisis and by seismic changes in the regulation of lending institutions in Europe.

Although the initial dislocation was in mortgage backed credit, the dislocation now engulfs the entire spectrum of real estate credit from private debt to inefficient capital markets due to the retreat of banks from the sector as they focus on recapitalisation and react to tighter regulation.
