Highland Capital Management is one of the top investment firms in the United States and is worth more than a billion dollars today. They first began working in the leverage loan market where they thrived and eventually became more diverse as the years progressed.

The firm was responsible for designing the first software to electronically track loan portfolios, which is used by a majority of loan managers. They sold the software to JPMorgan Chase in 2003.

They’ve gotten involved in more asset classes such as public equity and real estate, and they’ve established headquarters for their company in locations in the U.S and internationally. Highland Capital is well trusted and heavily regarded for its success over the years, but they wouldn’t be who they are or even exist without the hard work of James Dondero and Mark Okada who founded the firm together in 1993.

Recently Highland Capital Management has announced to everyone that Mark Okada would be retiring from his current sitting position. The firms are sad to see him go, however, he will be maintaining a role as a senior advisor until the end of his tenure at the end of 2019. View Additional Info Here.

After he is gone, Highland’s James Dondero will oversee all of the business matters associated with the firm and their other associated companies. Dondero credits Mark Okada for the growth of their company from a small firm to a multi-billion dollar trusted investment company. They’ve spent 30 years together achieving the trust of their clients and building a strong, trustworthy community of their own. Go Here for related Information.

Highland Capital Management says that they believe they will continue thriving and hope to continue their growth in Okada’s absence. Mark Okada says that he is excited about this new phase not only in his life but in his career and he can’t wait to see what’s in store for him. With any hope, he’ll keep in close contact with his old colleagues.
