This is only the second hedge fund seeding deal for Meritage, the $8 billion multifamily office that mostly manages money for James Simons and other senior executives of Renaissance Technologies. In 2008, Meritage invested up to $300 million in Hutchin Hill Capital, the firm founded in late 2007 by former SAC Capital Advisors quantitative trading chief Neil Chriss.
