Since being founded in early 1990, Highland Capital Management has continued to grow and expand. The idea for Highland Capital Management came from two business partners forming a joint venture with Protective Life Insurance Corporation. This new venture featured fixed income markets, and this included managing senior secured bank loans.
In 1993, Highland Capital Management evolved a step further by turning into a Protective Asset Management Company (PAMCO), as an investment advisor. This venture stayed steady until 1997, when the founders registered Ranger Asset Management, L.P. as an independent advisor. This name eventually changed to Highland Capital Management, and this is the name that the company goes by today.
Highland Capital Management has continued to expand its horizons. In 2000, it launched its first commingled bank loan fund. That same year, the alternative investment 40 Act platform was established. In 2004, the expansion continued with buying two floating rate funds from Columbia Asset Management. The final expansion happened in 2008 and 2011 with Highland Capital Management opening two offices in Singapore and Seoul, respectively.
