Global alternative investment manager, Cheyne Capital, is looking to raise £7.5bn for the next iterations of its Cheyne Real Estate Credit Holdings (CRECH) programme to help fulfil UK and European borrower demand.
The firm is targeting a $5bn capital raise for its Senior Loan strategy in what will be the eighth launch in the CRECH programme, and will focus solely on making senior real estate loans across Core, Core+, Value-Add and Development assets located in the UK and Western Europe.
The Capital Solutions strategy, meanwhile will also make senior loans and, in addition, will provide comprehensive solutions across the capital stack, including subordinated debt, hybrid credit and commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). This strategy already has a £650 million investor commitment and will be the ninth launch in the CRECH programme with a hard cap of £2.5bn.
Cheyne Real Estate made £2.8bn of European loans in 2022 and is on track to exceed £3bn in 2023.
