Merrimac Corporation was founded in 1989 as a single family office investing in hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, and direct real estate. Our goal is to find interesting investment opportunities across asset classes. We are constantly looking to build long term relationships with proven investment talent. We are opportunistic in our allocations and are currently looking for technology and biotechnology related investments. For details about our investment process as well as our current interests, get in touch with us.
Merrimac's mission is to positively impact the world through our investments and philanthropy. We partner with proven investment managers all over the world to generate the highest performance achievable. We are competitors in how we live and work, learning, investing and giving back to the world. We have a diversified approach towards building our portfolio, but truly have passion towards innovation and building the technology and biotechnology of the future.
The same tenacity we approach investing is also the same tenacity we approach philanthropy. We contribute the majority of our earnings each year towards philanthropic efforts primarily through our foundation. Similar to our investment efforts, we strive to have the most impact from each of our dollars contributed. We also have a diversified approach towards philanthropy, but truly have a passion towards climate change which we believe impacts most aspects of the United Nation’s seventeen sustainable development goals and education which improves the lives of future generations and improves income equality. In life the most valuable resource is time and it is our goal to spend every remaining minute learning, innovating, investing and giving back to the world.
We are looking for the best investment talent within their area of expertise. These opportunities can include unconstrained hedge funds as well as traditional long only equity and credit funds. We have a long history of seeding and investing in a diverse group of hedge fund managers. We prefer liquid investments with volatility which we manage through diversification across a portfolio of risk factors, including geography, sector and Barra factors.
We are looking for proven top decile managers in private equity and venture capital. We are building a diversified portfolio of funds across different factors while earning a liquidity premium. We also invest in direct deals with our private equity and venture capital partners. In real estate, we are looking for regional and sector specialists as partners to co-invest in direct real estate opportunities.
