• FS Investments helps investors design better portfolios. We started as Franklin Square Capital Partners in 2007 with a vision to bring investors access to alternative sources of income and growth historically available only to large institutions and the wealthiest individuals. We helped change that and, as FS Investments, we remain committed to helping people transform their portfolios.

    Our thoughtfully designed solutions combine differentiated strategies, top institutional managers and investment structures tailored to our investors’ needs. We focus on setting industry standards for investor protection, education and transparency. Today we manage a growing suite of funds designed for financial advisors, individuals and institutions to achieve a variety of financial goals.
