Benefit Street Partners

We’re proud to welcome Benefit Street Partners (“BSP”), a leading credit-focused alternative asset management firm with approximately $26 billion1 in assets under management.

BSP will bolster Franklin Templeton’s alternative offerings and expand our robust fixed income capabilities to include an array of alternative credit strategies to meet the evolving needs of clients.

Overview
