When the firm started up it was originally a life insurance company. It was co founded by financial professionals James Dondero and Mark Okada. This firm is still led by James Dondero as he is the current president of the company. As a life insurance company, Highland Capital established itself as a reputable firm that offered quality coverage with a number of life insurance policies. However, the firm looked to add more products and services so that it can continue to meet the needs of various clients. It would also lead to more profitability in the long term. As a result, the firm would begin expanding on its products and services during the decade of the 1990’s. The highlight of this era in the firm’s history was that it became the first financial company to offer collateralized loan obligations.
