Franklin Square Capital Partners Key Developments

Franklin Square Capital Partners Launches New FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund

Franklin Square Capital Partners announced the launch of its FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund, an unlisted closed-end fund that invests primarily in global credit. The Fund seeks to generate an attractive total return, while also focusing on capital preservation, by investing in loans, bonds and other credit instruments of public and private companies, with a strong focus on the European and U.S. markets. FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund is sub-advised by GSO Capital Partners LP, the credit platform of Blackstone. Franklin Square and GSO /Blackstone have partnered on three other funds. Franklin Square selected GSO as the sub-adviser for its fourth fund in great part because of GSO's successful track record in carrying out similar global, event-driven investment strategies for select institutional investors. By focusing on these investment opportunities across GSO /Blackstone's global platform, FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund looks to create a portfolio that can generate high potential returns.
