Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Meritage?

Meritage Capital, LLC (“Meritage” or the “Firm”) believes that a diversified portfolio of hedge fund investments should be a core holding in a well-managed portfolio. The original Meritage founders and managing members are the former CFO and Treasurer of Dell Inc., respectively, who launched the firm in 2003 to develop differentiated hedge fund solutions that they were unable to find in the market. In December 2012, the Firm merged with Centennial Partners, LLC, a Tennessee based firm.

Today the Firm is a SEC-registered investment adviser and CFTC-registered commodity pool operator and commodity trading adviser specializing in commingled strategies, custom portfolios, and liquid alternatives. The Firm is a team of twelve professionals with diverse buy-side, sell-side, senior corporate management and family office backgrounds. We leverage a deep knowledge and understanding of the global hedge fund universe, along with years of experience and expertise, to intelligently construct fund-of-funds portfolios where we invest alongside of our investors.
