Highland Capital Hires Yoon To Head New Seoul Office

Sep 1 2011 | 11:35am ET

Dallas-based Highland Capital Management, an investment manager with $23 billion AUM, has tapped Chris Yoon to head its newly opened Seoul office.

Yoon, whose title will be director of business development, comes to Highland from Seoul’s Asia Pacific Capital, where he served as a director of alternative investments. Prior to that, he worked in Seoul for Macquarie Securities Korea and KPMG Samjong Investment Advisory.

In his new role, in which he’ll report to Highland’s Asia-Pacific regional office in Singapore, Yoon will manage Highland’s business operations and investor relations in Korea. He will also be responsible for developing strategic relationships with key securities and asset management companies.

“With its dynamic capital and financial market growth and development and rapid expansion of its pension systems, there is strong demand for Highland’s specialized investment products in Korea,” said James Dondero, president and co-founder of Highland. “Korea is one of our top growth areas in Asia and we are excited to be on the ground to help Korean institutions achieve their investment goals.”
