At the very beginning of the firm’s history, it started out as one that specialized in life insurance. The firm was founded by finance professionals James Dondero and Mark Okada. For the first few years of the firm’s existence, it was among the leading providers of life insurance in the United States. However, the firm looked to meet the growing demands of its client base. Therefore it looked to offer more services and establish itself as a more comprehensive financial services company.
The 1990’s was a significant decade for the firm as it transformed itself from a life insurance company to fully fledged financial services firm. In 1993, the firm looked to offer more services such as wealth management, asset management and financial advisory. In 1996, the firm would begin offering collateralized loan obligations which would become the first to offer this financial securities product. By the year 1997, Highland Capital Management became the new name of the firm. It would continue to provide a variety of financial services to clients in the coming years.

It has offered a number of other financial products and services such as hedge funds and private equity securities.
