Founded in 2000 by two pension plans, our sole focus for the first eleven years was to build the most powerful private equity investment engine in the world.
Today, we continue to employ that expertise to generate value for our investor base of over 450 LPs across the platform.
A culture of collaboration
Working together and building lasting partnerships has always been the foundation of our success—whether that means sharing information internally, being a partner of choice to our GPs or providing high-touch customer service to our investors.
Knowledge is power
We have constructed a proprietary database of tens of thousands of companies across hundreds of funds.
That data, combined with our cutting-edge technology and access to the global Carlyle network, drives deep insights and fuels both better investment decisions and highly transparent reporting for our partners.
We believe the private equity industry benefits both from a focus on responsible investment and from diverse and inclusive working environments.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations have been a core part of our investment process for over a decade. Our culture of collaboration naturally embraces diversity and inclusion as key principles.
