Talk of James Dondero and I remember that I and he have something in common. He started his company Highland Capital in 1993 the same year I was graduating from Harvard Business School. Well you might be wondering what my fascination is all about; I mean am not the first one to graduate from a business school nor was I the last one. The thing is from then I developed lot of interests in James Dondero Company and I have been following the progress keenly. I do not work in the company but curiosity is to be blamed here, and am taking care so that am not the cat that gets killed in the process.
Well I am sure most entrepreneurs will attest that not all times there’s is always capital like manner falling from heaven- it at all it ever fell-. It’s always hard to acquire enough capital. Having started as a financial analyst at Morgan Guaranty Training Program; James Dondero of Highland must have come across 30 year olds business men and women looking older thanks to their wrinkled faces all stranded on where to get capital for their investments which surely were good enough and would realize good returns if at all well-funded.
Well, please do not misquote me, I am not saying that’s the reason highland capital was incepted, am trying to see a reason behind the inception. With over a decade’s experience, the company mains obligation is to find securities for loaners. They negotiate and convince banking institutions to give out loans to their clients as investment banking organization help in providing financial capital to individual and government corporations. The institutions play the role of offering financial securities to banks .
Personally I haven’t been t their offices but read lots of reviews from their websites and articles the clients (if they are not exaggerating) say the level of professionalism in the company is way ahead another level. The company conducts its business with high standards of integrity. They have no option because they provide loan security to financial institution to their clients.
The company has expanded its business services to operating in countries in Africa, Asia and North America. Their headquarters are located in Dallas state in America.
Being a pioneer in the field of offering collaterals to financial institutions, highland capital founder James Dondero graduated at the top of his class at the University of Virginia. His academic qualifications include CFA, CPA in addition to CMA. He is also the co-founder of the company. Many describe him as the mogul of hedge fund; the guy is simply good at what he does. He spends his leisure dining on a giraffe if he was short I would say he wants to be seen, however, his is his own unique style. He also jams at the Steven win wood. His thirty years’ experience in the field of hedge funds is no joke and needs thumbs up because he is also the pioneer in the field.
