Founded in 1993, Highland Capital Management LP is the realization of the shared dream of President James Dondero and CIO Mark Okada. These two industry leaders have shepherded a widely diversified alternative investment company for nearly a quarter of a century.
The firm has over 18.7 billion dollars in assets, making it a powerhouse in the alternative investment industry. With such abundant wealth and an expert leadership team, Highland is a company that meets the rising demand for hedged risk. Mr. Okada even had the honor of ringing the closing bell upon the relisting of Highland iBoxx Senior Loan ETF ($SNLN).
With its headquarters in Houston, Texas and offices in New York City; London, England,; Sao Paulo, Brazil and Singapore, Highland Capital Management has a truly global outlook. Indeed, its exposure to the East Asian healthcare market has led to impressive gains over the last few quarters. With the population of the developed world rapidly aging, this focus could pay major dividends. And, through hard work of Dondero, Okada and their team, the firm’s variety of investment products have seen appreciable returns over time.
Due to the intelligent risk management strategies or Mr. Dondero and Mr. Okada, Highland Small Cap Equity Fund ($HSZAX) provided nearly triple the return of the S&P 500 Index in 2016. This provides value investors an avenue for highly lucrative earnings in a volatile marketplace.
Highland Capital Management has also displayed an admirable commitment to corporate social responsibility, having given more than $10 million to deserving global charities over the span of twelve years. This reflects the social attitudes of the core leadership team as well as the values of the company as a whole.
Highland Capital Management has holdings in social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter, financial companies such as Visa and retail giants such as Amazon. For the value investor looking for reliable income from innovative, twenty-first-century companies, Highland Capital Management’s funds may just be the optimal asset to own.
