Through this acquisition, Franklin Templeton’s US alternative credit specialist investment manager, Benefit Street Partners (BSP), will expand its alternative credit capabilities and presence in Europe, doubling its assets under management to $77 billion globally. The transaction will also continue to strengthen the breadth and scale of Franklin Templeton’s alternative asset strategies and brings firmwide alternative assets under management to $257 billion after the transaction closes.
