Our Culture

By December 1, 2014November 19th, 2015Market Insight, News

Since the beginning, Highland has treated investor’s capital like it is our own. This single mission defines our culture, and in some years, we make more income from investing alongside our investors than our management fees.

We have always taken a very hands on approach to finding the most innovative ways to achieve market leading returns. The innovative solutions that are offered by the Highland Capital team is what sets us apart from other firms. For example, we started looking at the credit space and eventually pioneered the Collateralized Loan Obligation, an asset class today that has more than a trillion dollars invested.

Our company is comprised of individuals who share this same philosophy. The management team is closely integrated and works hard to research investment ideas, develop strategies and optimize returns. A money management firm’s most valuable asset is its people. We are focused on applying our human capital effectively to ensure efficient and successful management of our client’s capital. Each and every day, we will continue to treat client’s capital like our own and hope to continue to be a valued partner for future investment needs.
