Highland Capital Management was founded in 1990 and has continued to dominate the life alternative credit industry. Highland Capital Management was formed from two business partners taking their idea for Highland Capital Management and merging in with the Protective Life Insurance Corporation. This new business featured fixed income markets and included senior secured bank loans.
Highland Capital Management began to evolve in 1993 by turning the original Protective Life Insurance Corporation into a Protective Asset Management Company or PAMCO. This newly evolved company focused on investment advising. This business venture thrived and in 1997, Ranger Asset Management, L.P. was created and registered as an independent advisor. This name eventually changed to Highland Capital Management, and this is the name most people know the company by today.
Highland Capital Management has continued to do very well for itself with investment advising, and in 2000 the first bank loan fund was launched to massive success. The same year, Highland Capital Management also launched the alternative investment 40 Act platform. In 2004, Highland Capital Management passed another growth milestone by purchasing two floating rate funds from Columbia Asset Management. This company has continued to grow and opened a Singapore office in 2008 and a Seoul office in 2011.
Highland Capital Management has a track record of working with many non-profit organizations and charities. They have donated over 10 million dollars to various groups and projects so far. Some of the groups Highland Capital Management works with are Uplift Education, American Heart Association, Reserve Aid, Capital for Kids, Snowball Express, and Education Freedom. They believe that by nurturing the minds of the next generation, the future will be a much brighter place.
Highland Capital Management will continue to exceed expectations in the investment advisor field. They have a long history of giving back to non-profits and education funds. This company will continue to expand and do great things in the future, and they will be around, making a difference for years to come.
