About Benefit Street Partners


Benefit Street Partners ("BSP") is a leading credit-focused alternative asset management firm with approximately $27 billion in assets under management. BSP is a wholly owned subsidiary of Franklin Resources, Inc. that, together with its various subsidiaries, operates as Franklin Templeton.

Established in 2008, the BSP platform manages funds for institutions, high-net-worth and retail investors across various strategies including: private/opportunistic debt, liquid loans, high yield, special situations, and commercial real estate debt.  These complementary strategies leverage the proprietary sourcing, analytical, operational and compliance capabilities that encompass BSP’s robust institutional platform.

Our team invests across the credit spectrum – from senior secured debt to subordinated debt, as well as both liquid and illiquid credit – and has extensive experience deploying capital through multiple business cycles. BSP takes a flexible and opportunistic approach to investing and seeks to capitalize on the best risk-adjusted returns depending on where we are in the credit cycle. This has resulted in a track record of attractive absolute and relative returns to investors.

Led by Thomas Gahan, BSP has over 200 employees and over 110 investment professionals. Mr. Gahan and our senior management team have worked together for over two decades. BSP is supported by a talented team of strategy leaders, portfolio managers and investment professionals, including a dedicated research team with sector-specific expertise.
