FS Investments and EIG Global Energy Partners partner to manage USD4bn FS Energy and Power Fund


Alternative investment manager FS Investments is to create a joint venture with EIG Global Energy Partners (EIG), a global alternative investment firm focused on energy and energy-related infrastructure.

The joint venture is expected to create a platform with the scale, flexibility and energy industry expertise to offer energy and infrastructure companies flexible financing solutions across the capital structure. As a result, following the formation of the venture, the FS Investments/EIG team expects to generate enhanced deal flow – particularly directly originated deals – that positions the portfolio to create long term value for FS Energy and Power Fund (FSEP) investors.
“As a leading provider of institutional capital in the global energy industry, EIG is a perfect partner to jointly manage FSEP given the firm’s sector expertise, global reach and scale,” says Michael Forman (pictured), Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FS Investments.
“We look forward to working together to transition the FSEP portfolio with an eye toward enhancing returns, reducing risk, and creating a liquidity event for our investors through a public listing.”
“We are excited to partner with FS Investments to manage FSEP,” says William Sonneborn, President of EIG. “We are honoured that after an extensive search, FS Investments and the board of FSEP chose EIG as their partner.  We believe that as an integrated team we can improve the existing portfolio and its returns to FSEP investors.”
Under the terms of the agreement, following shareholder approval, FS Investments and EIG will provide investment advisory services to FSEP. In addition, EIG has filed an application for a new exemptive relief order that will allow FSEP to co-invest with EIG’s other funds and accounts.
