We hope you and your families are well during this tumultuous time. As you know, businesses across the country — and around the world — are currently facing a range of challenges. While Highland has felt the impact of the pandemic, we had plans and procedures in place that helped mitigate its effects and ensured the continuity of our business operations. We hope this is already evident in the level of support we have been able to provide in recent weeks to the home offices, advisors, and investors we serve. Our highest priorities are keeping our Highland employees safe and ensuring our ability to serve you. I want to share some information about our business operations and how we have adjusted to continue to provide that support without disruption.
Many of our own teams are able to work from home, and we have the IT systems and collaboration tools to ensure they can do so effectively. In our Dallas, Texas headquarters, we have reduced the number of employees working in the office; however, our office remains open and is staffed with critical personnel across investment teams, trading, legal and compliance, IT, operations, and other key back-office support functions.
While our business continues to function without interruption, Highland understands that this is a challenging time, and we are committed to supporting you in any way that we can. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
