Highland Capital Management (together with its affiliates “Highland”) is a multibillion-dollar global alternative investment platform founded in 1993 by Jim Dondero and Mark Okada. A pioneer in the leveraged loan market, the firm has evolved over 25 years, building on its credit expertise and value-based approach to expand into other asset classes.
Today, Highland operates a diverse investment platform, serving both institutional and retail investors worldwide. In addition to high-yield credit, Highland’s investment capabilities include public equities, real estate, private equity and special situations, structured credit, and sector- and region-specific verticals built around specialized teams.
Highland is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and maintains offices in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, and Seoul.
Founded in 1993, Highland is a pioneer in alternative credit. The firm helped develop the leveraged loan and CLO markets, and has remained a leader in those areas over numerous credit cycles. Building on this experience, we have since expanded into other asset classes and continue to find new ways to provide differentiated access to alternatives.
What separates great managers from good ones is how quickly they identify and avoid losers; with that view, our investment strategies focus on “alpha-by-avoidance.” We use checks and balances that help mitigate risks and volatility. In addition to implementing discipline at the portfolio level, we take a disciplined approach across the platform, seeking to align interests with our investors through co-investment and transparency.
An advocate for investors, Highland has been a leader in expanding access to alternatives for over 25 years. Across our platform, we seek to develop solutions for investors through unique alternative offerings. Highland remains independent and promotes an entrepreneurial culture, encouraging new ideas and innovative approaches to deliver alpha and add value.
