Franklin Square Capital Partners sponsors innovative alternative investment products designed to give the investing public access to private investments.
We pioneered the use of a special type of investment called a non-traded business development company (BDC), which allows the investing public to access debt and equity securities of private companies in the United States — the same investments that many large institutions and endowments hold in their portfolios to help add stability and diversification. Watch our video to learn about BDCs.
Our current offerings include FS Investment Corporation III (FSIC III), FS Energy & Power Fund (FSEP) and FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund. FSIC III is the latest generation of our core income strategy and the successor fund to FS Investment Corporation II (FSIC II) and, FS Investment Corporation (FSIC), our inaugural fund. FSIC II closed to new investors in March 2014 and FSIC intends to list on the New York Stock Exchange in April 2014. FSEP combines income with growth potential and invests primarily in private U.S. companies in the energy and power industry. Finally, FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund, our first unlisted closed-end fu provides an alternative approach to global credit investing and seeks to generate an attractive total return.
Advisors and investors choose our solutions because we offer advantages that are hard to replicate elsewhere: diversification into distinctive asset classes and strategies with access to world-class institutional asset managers. We welcome you to explore what our investment offerings can do for you.
