Franklin Square Capital Partners is a sponsor and national distributor of innovative alternative investment products.
The firm was founded in 2007 by an experienced group of industry professionals who saw an opportunity to enable investors to tap into the same strategies employed successfully for years by large institutional investors — like pension funds, financial institutions, endowments and high net worth individuals. Franklin Square believes that institutional portfolios that selectively incorporate alternative investments are better-suited to manage risk and generate above-market returns than the typical investor's portfolio.
Franklin Square quickly established itself as an innovative force within the alternative investment world. It ranked #13 on the Forbes list of America's Most Promising Companies and #3 on the Philadelphia 100 list of fastest growing companies. See our recent awards.
Franklin Square set out to create investment solutions that are pioneering, yet easy to understand and apply.
What Franklin Square offers investors...
- New asset classes and strategies that traditionally have been out of reach for the investing public, such as the debt of private companies that we think can help investors of all kinds to build stronger, more diversified portfolios.
- Elite asset managers, whom we deem to be among the best and brightest serving the world's most sophisticated institutions, including The Blackstone Group. We place their talents at the disposal of investors at a reasonable minimum level of investment (generally $5,000).
- Current income combined with potential capital appreciation to generate solid risk-adjusted returns.
Franklin Square distributes its sponsored financial products to the independent broker-dealer community through its affiliated wholesaling broker-dealer, FS² Capital Partners, LLC (member FINRA/SIPC).
All investments carry risks. An investment in shares of funds sponsored by Franklin Square involves a high degree of risk and is considered speculative. Risks include, but are not limited to, lack of liquidity (because there is no public trading market for the common shares of the funds), financial market risks (including changes in interest rates), risk of significant loss (due to changes in the value of underlying investments), and the risks of leverage (an investment technique where the funds may borrow money to purchase investments). Please read the "Risk Factors" section of the applicable prospectus of each fund for a complete list of risks before investing in our funds.
