Carlyle Hits Record AUM: Over $200 Billion

Pensions & Investments reported:

Carlyle Group reported $202.7 billion in assets under management as of June 30, a 1.9% increase from three months earlier and up 12.4% from the previous year, in its second quarter earnings report released on Wednesday.

In February 2000 Carlyle had a mere $3.3 billion in AUM.   Carlyle grew by $88.2 billion during the George W. Bush Presidency, before falling $5.4 billion during the 2008 financial crisis. 

The Obama White House saw Carlyle grow another $111.2 billion.  Politicians Red and Blue love PEU (private equity underwriters).
