The Dallas-based management firm Highland Capital Management, L.P., more commonly referred to as simply Highland, is the proud winner of the 40 ACT fund-equity category of the prestigious Hedge Fund Management United States Hedge Fund Performance Award. Judges with years of experience in the industry consider a number of qualitative and quantitative factors into consideration before arriving at their final decision. Of particular importance are the performance of the fund over the last five years, along with the reputation of the fund’s manager and investor’s reputation.
Co-founder and President of Highland Capital Management James Dondero says that winning this prestigious award is a testament to the experience of the team of 11 dedicated individuals that Highland has been able to assemble under the leadership of Michael Gregory. Together the team has over 130 years of experience.
There is no doubt that one factor that judges were very impressed by was Jim Dondero’s vast 30-year experience in managing profitable hedge funds and other investment opportunities. Jim graduated from the University of Virginia before obtaining additional training at J.P. Morgan. He is a well-respected industry leader who donates many hours of his time each year to serve as the Chairman for Cornerstone Health Group.
Jim Dondero has always known that the strength of his company is in hiring the right people. That is why he is particularly proud to announce that Terry Jones has joined Highland as President of Institutional Products.
