About the Founder, James Dondero
Perhaps, the performance of Highland Capital Management is reflected in the expertise of its founder, James Dondero. Jim has actively focused on hedge fund management for the last 30 years. His financial expertise includes management of collaterized loan obligation securities as Jim was the first individual to launch non-bank CLO fund in 1996.
Before founding Highlands Capital Management, Jim successfully oversaw many award-winning funds at a subsidiary of Protective Life and as an income fund manager at American Express. Recently, James Dondero announced inclusion of another industry’s stalwart, Terry Jones. The step is likely to strengthen broader institutional framework at the firm that has always relied on providing superior risk-adjusted performance since inception.
