Michael C. Forman
Michael believes investors deserve a better way to invest. That’s why FS Investments exists today.
His many years of experience as a corporate and securities lawyer, endowment trustee and founder of an institutional private equity firm inspired him to co-found FS Investments in 2007 with a mission to provide all investors access to effective alternative strategies historically available to only the largest institutions. Under Michael’s leadership, FS Investments has become a top alternative asset manager that embraces the core values of transparency, investor protection, service and education.
Michael remains fully focused on helping investors build better portfolios to achieve income, growth and diversification through alternatives. He is the chairman of the board and serves on the investment committee for each of FS Investments’ funds, and every month he leads education forums for hundreds of financial advisors from across the country.
Michael’s passion for health and wellness, giving back, constant learning and supporting the arts has shaped the company’s culture. Woven into FS Investments’ fabric is an emphasis on performance, education and creativity. Outside of FS Investments, Michael devotes himself to health and wellness, serving non-profit organizations, supporting contemporary artists and, most of all, spending time with his wife and three daughters.
