Research is the foundation for our work at Highland Associates. A hyper-awareness of financial market dynamics and a commitment to due diligence inform our forward-looking and customized investment management programs. Our expertise spans capital markets, traditional investments and alternative strategies.
Highland’s research department is organized into two sectors: capital markets and manager research.
