Michael Gregory Reports the Improvements at Highland Capital
Michael Gregory is the CIO (Chief Investment Officer) at Highland Alternative Investors. He oversees the fund with Dondero who is the President and co-founder of Highland Capital Management. Highland Alternative Investors is a small fund with nearly fifty-five million US dollars in assets.
Gregory said that Highland Capital’s credit competency enabled it to make profitable investments at the beginning of 2016 in pipeline partnerships when oil prices reduced. The investments brought nearly half of the company’s total returns. According to Gregory, the pipeline partnerships did not slice Highland Alternative Investments’ dividends after it purchased shares.
