Who We Are
Based in Chicago, Merit Capital Partners has raised over $2.7 billion through seven 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 four have been fully realized; funds five and six have been partially realized (still pursuing add-ons); and fund seven is being actively invested.
Merit has a long history investing junior capital. Since 1993, we have made over 95 investments across seven funds. Merit has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to navigate through various economic conditions and provide liquidity for varying shareholder needs.
