Who We Are
Based in Chicago, Merit Capital Partners has raised $2.2 billion through six institutionally sponsored limited partnerships.
We focus on high-quality, established businesses with carefully conceived operating strategies. Our goal is to work with committed owners and strong managers to help increase a company’s value.
Our investor base includes insurance companies, large domestic and international pension funds, university endowments, family offices and high net worth individuals, for whom Merit’s consistent investment strategy provides both current yield and meaningful upside.
Funds one through three have been fully realized; funds four and five have been partially realized; and fund six is being actively invested.
Merit has a long history investing junior capital. Since 1993, we have made over 85 investments across six funds. Merit has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to navigate through various economic conditions and provide liquidity for varying shareholder needs.
