James Dondero Hires A Successful EmployeeJuly 24, 2017 - Author: steph - No Comments
On October 23, 2015, Highland Capital Management announced its newest President of Institutional Products. Formerly the lead director of Highland Funds, Terry Jones has more than twenty-five years of experience in the financial sector. He is extremely eager to engage in such responsibilities such as educating clients of an investment’s risks and opportunities while forming personalized solutions to their concerns. Mr. Jones will work alongside James Dondero who is the cofounder and president of Highland Capital Management.
After graduating from Columbia University’s prestigious business school, Mr. Jones has held managerial positions with Goldman Sachs and Battersby Capital Management. His former experience with overseeing over $8 billion in a fund of hedge funds at Goldman Sachs will definitely prepare him to succeed as the President of Institutional Products. Mr. Jones’ portfolio also consists of maintaining a position as a board member of Genworth Life Insurance Company and the SEI AIC III.
Many current employees at Highland Capital Management agree that Mr. Jones will play an integral role in improving the company’s current risk management infrastructure and enhancing the performance of clients’ portfolios in incredibly complex markets. Mr. Jones intends to execute his responsibilities as the President of Institutional Products with transparency and efficiency.
Mr. Jones has made an excellent decision to join one of the country’s most successful global alternative management firms. Currently operating in Sao Paolo, Seoul, Singapore, and New York, Highland Capital Management specializes in effective services such as structured products, healthcare, real estate, emerging markets, high yield credit, and long/short equity. The primary goal of the company is to produce excellent returns by incorporating proven investment strategies. The firm prides itself in hiring staff that are bold, experienced, and disciplined with their financial techniques. Highland Capital Management maintains headquarters in Dallas, Texas.
Perhaps the greatest honor is Mr. Jones’ opportunity to work directly with James Dondero. Mr. Dondero founded Highland Capital Management in 1993. Since its inception, he has worked tirelessly to ensure that the company’s financial offerings remain superior to other investment options in today’s competitive industry. In addition to his role as cofounder and president of Highland Capital Management, Mr. Dondero is also an avid philanthropist. He supports organizations dedicated to the advancement of education, public policy, and veteran affairs. He is also a proud board member of a couple of prominent organizations including MGM Studios and American Banknote.
