Within the investment management industry there is a wide-array of risks involved for determining which opportunity will yield the most-profitable results for clients and establish long term goals. Highland Capital Management has lead the industry by lowering those risks with continued focus on providing unique products and avidly building protections for investors’ capital. As an independent investment firm, Highland Capital Management is better equipped with a wider functionality to meet the client’s investment needs and leverage greater opportunities for the growth of their portfolios.
Co-founded by James Dondero and Mark Okada, Highland Capital Management has evolved from a firm that once began as a Protective Life Insurance Company. The firm later developed into a Protective Asset Management Company although only 40 percent was owned by the co-founders. The firm routinely co-partners with investors and has invested more than $250 million alongside their clients and investors.
For the last two decades, Highland Capital Management sustained a level of progression within the alternative credit market that has positioned the firm into becoming the leading investment company in the world. With $18 billion in managing assets and clients all over the globe, Highland Capital Management has positioned the firm for expanding its investment platform for strategizing distressed credit markets. Highland Capital Management pioneered the collateralized loan obligation (CLO) investment strategy with over $30 billion in structuring and managing the asset class for clients. The firm now leads the credit market with higher returns on distressed assets in the country.
In 2008, Highland Capital Management began its global operations in Singapore and three years later opened their first office in Seoul. The firm now also has offices located in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Highland Capital Management headquarters are located Dallas, Texas. The firm provides for charities within the area as well as nationwide. In 2014, Highland Capital Management partnered with the Gary Sinese Foundation to support the Snowball Express to help children of military families. Snowball Express supports more than 8,000 children of gold star families nationwide. Highland Capital Management agreed to match every dollar received with a donation challenge grant to reach $1 million.
