The Dallas-based hedge fund has seen five developments in which it was involved in its home state file for bankruptcy or liquidation since September, the Dallas Business Journal reports. Those failures may have cost the firm up to US$22 million.

But Highland says it still sees strong opportunities in real-estate investments.

“Our track record has encouraged us to actively pursue a broad range of opportunistic real-estate debt opportunities across the U.S.,” Scott Wilson, Highland’s managing director for business development, told the DBJ.
