With both an educational and occupational background being solely rooted in the field of finance, it became inevitable for James Dondero to excel in the financial realm and become one of the industry’s leading alternative investing experts. Directly after receiving his business degree with the highest honorary recognition from the University of Virginia, James Dondero remained steadfast in his desire to transcend as a businessman by acquiring several additional financial management certifications to service clients as a CFA, CPA, and CMA.
Thus, in having made the most logical occupational decision to equip himself with a set of such valuable accounting skills, Jim Dondero placed himself on a path to superlative entrepreneurial achievement. Following his years (1985-1993) of corporate employment as an Analyst, Portfolio Manager, and Chief Investment Officer to some of the finance industry’s most reputable business operations (Morgan Guaranty, Protective Life, and American Express), James Dondero had reached a level of mastery in finance
This experience enabled him to become the Chairman of NexBank Capital, Co-Founder/President of Highland Capital Management, and he is the founder of NexPoint Advisors.
With Highland Capital Management being launched under the operational advisement of Mr. Dondero as his initial entrepreneurial project, the firm became a pioneer in the market via its development of world-wide credit-based investment products. Moreover, it was Highland Capital’s multitude of such investment product offerings (mutual funds, private equity funds, hedge funds, ETFs, REITs, etc.) that attributed to the diversity in various investment platforms that exist today.
Being that Highland Capital had manifested such a supreme level of success, James Dondero applied the same innovative business energy that he used with his initial project to match its level of prosperity with his second entrepreneurial project—NexPoint. After introducing NexPoint (real estate-oriented investment firm) to the alternative investment industry in 2012, it flourished under the demand to satisfy the range in investor’s needs. As of today, both projects continue to lead the finance industry with groundbreaking influence. See related link to learn more.
