28 Aug 2014

road-closed-sign-2-1003255-mPrivate equity giant The Carlyle Group has closed its collateralised loan obligation (CLO) fund on approximately $816m.

It is the third CLO vehicle that the firm has closed in the US this year and will invest mostly in senior secured bank loans.

In March the firm announced it had held the final close of a US CLO fund on $727m and a European CLO vehicle which pulled in €375, totalling $1.25bn.

The latest close brings Carlyle’s total capital raised in CLO’s to approximately $3.23bn. Of this, $2.1 was harvested in the US and just over $1bn in Europe.

Carlyle’s structured credit/CLO business had $17bn in assets under management as of June 30, 2014 and is part of its Global Market Strategies platform.

This includes mezzanine and energy mezzanine loans, high yield and structured credit, distressed equity and debt and four hedge fund strategies.

Earlier this month AltAssets reported that Carlyle had registered $1.86bn commitments for its International Energy Partners fund.
