Every company longs to win an award. This is because it acts as a testimonial showing their service is recognized and acceptable. For Highland Capital Management, it is a big win for them to bag an award in the HFM US Hedge Fund Performance category in 2015. The company manages assets worth over $20 billion and has made a mark in the investment management map. Under the leadership of James Dondero who is the President and also the Co-founder, the firm has grown in leaps and bounds.
James has appreciated the work done by Michael Gregory who is in charge of the Healthcare investment plans. Having outdone their peers in this category is a sign of overwhelming commitment. This is because the award was based on the performance data in 3-5 years, the experience of the manager and the rapport established with the investors. The infrastructure set in place to manage risks has also surpassed the set standards. This helps steer the investment process thus making the whole team a great success. The aim of the heath care fund is to give a long term appreciation of capital raised from the investors. Massive success has also been achieved through Terry Jones who was hired in the Institutional Products as the President
