dollar envelope moneyPrivate equity firm Carlyle’s portfolio company TCW Group is reportedly seeking $3bn for a direct lending fund.

TCW is looking to raise funds from sovereign-wealth funds and other deep-pocketed investors that are looking for income-producing strategies, said Dow Jones, citing people with knowledge of the matter.

Late last year TCW bought Los Angeles-based private equity firm Craton Equity Partners, which is focused on socially responsible investing.

Craton Equity, which provides growth capital to venture-backed companies within the sustainability, resource efficiency and carbon-reducing technology sectors, has more than $240m under management.
