LONDON (Reuters) - Merian Chrysalis Investment Company <IPO-MER.L>, a Merian Global Investors fund, said on Friday it had raised 100 million pounds via a listing on the London Stock Exchange - half the amount intended.

"Despite challenging market conditions - following the global sell-off in October, and investors adopting a cautious outlook - we are pleased to have raised 100 million pounds at launch," the fund's co-fund manager Richard Watts said in a statement.

Merian Global Investors, formerly Old Mutual Global Investors, is run by veteran investor Richard Buxton.
