Experienced and Cohesive Team
Franklin Park is a 100% employee-owned firm. Our senior professionals average 16 years of private market investment experience and, collectively, possess over 175 years of experience. Our firm culture is an essential part of Franklin Park’s business model and impacts both investment performance and client service. Franklin Park’s culture embodies four core principles: investment excellence, outstanding service, integrity and professionalism. By following these principles, we build upon and maintain a firm culture that supports effective teamwork and avoids complacency and team dysfunction. The strength of our culture is evident in and reinforced by a high level of continuity of our experienced team. Our six founders all remain active with the firm. Over our history, a number of associates have grown into senior roles.
Focused & Disciplined Business Model
Franklin Park is solely focused on private market investments. As a specialist with no other lines of business, all of our firm resources are devoted to the development of private market programs. Private markets are inefficient and capacity constrained, where select managers can deliver excess returns. We constrain the amount of assets under advisement in order to provide our clients with access to all of these best-in-class fund managers.
Access to Investments
Since 2003, Franklin Park has been scouring the global manager private markets universe looking for best-in-class managers for client portfolios. Our existing manager relationships enable us to access fund investments that are not broadly available. Further, through continuous manager research, we uncover and establish relationships with new managers.
Customized & Collaborative Client Service
We work closely with our clients to establish a program in line with their objectives, biases and preferences. Franklin Park offers each client the opportunity to choose the extent of their participation in the investment process. While we lead the investment process for many of our clients, we also understand the value of involving our clients in the process and we welcome our clients to be as involved in the process as they desire.
