James Dondero’s Global Allocation Fund makes major headway
James Dondero is one of the nation’s foremost innovators in the field of finance. Since starting Highland Capital Management in 1993, Dondero has led the firm to become one of the nation’s foremost providers of credit market investment vehicles. The firm has racked up impressive returns over the years, provided its clients with great value and security in their long-term investments.
Recently, Mr. Dondero was written up in an issue of Barron’s magazine. The magazine praised Mr. Dondero’s outsized returns in his Global allocation investment vehicle. That investment vehicle had returned 29% in the first three months of 2017. This rated among the highest performing diversified global investment pools in the entire world.
Mr. James Dondero has decades of experience in putting together some of the most dynamic and high-returning investment opportunities in the United States. Highland capital Management Global Allocation Fund is just one example of many of the firm’s high-performing assets, which have delivered tremendous value to their investors over the years.
One of the areas in which Mr. Dondero has made a name for himself is in the collateralized loan obligation space. Mr. Dondero was among the first financial experts in the United States to recognize the potential that syndicated debt had in creating more liquid markets and easier accessibility to capital for those companies that needed it. Nowhere was this truer than in the short-term credit markets. Until Highland capital invented its first collateralized loan obligation products, companies needed to go directly to the bank to secure financing, even for periods as small as weeks or months.
Through his creation of a viable syndicated debt product, Mr. Dondero was able to free up lenders from their traditional capital requirements, allowing them to make vastly more loans in a quicker, streamlined process. This enables companies, rather than being forced to go to the local bankers, to be able to essentially tap into the entire national credit market directly, and able in them to raise capital with extreme rapidity and with minimal amounts of accompanying paperwork.
Mr. Dondero continues to achieve outsized returns and provide strong leadership for his firm.
