FS Energy and Power Fund (FSEP), a non-traded BDC, recently announced that it has won the 2014 Alternative Investment Award for Innovation Investing in Energy from Wealth & Finance International Magazine. The award honors businesses and individuals in the alternative investment industry that focus on innovative, forward-thinking, and client-friendly businesses.

“We’re proud to be named as an international leader in the rapidly growing alternatives industry,” said Michael C. Forman, Chairman and CEO of Franklin Square. “Funds like FSEP, which primarily supplies capital to privately held energy and power businesses, exemplify how true alternatives that embrace the benefits of illiquidity can enhance investor portfolios.”
