Utilizing the conservative and disciplined approach common to all of the firm's funds, Carlyle's European buyout team seeks to create partnerships with corporations and large family-owned businesses. In both instances Carlyle aims to help these organizations reposition and expand their businesses in order to attain a leadership position in European or global markets. It has built a strong, locally recruited investment team spanning a wide range of previous experience within industry, management consultancy, banking, and audit. These investment professionals, who are based in Barcelona, London, Milan, Munich and Paris, understand the local business operating environment and cultural issues clearly.

Investment Strategy

We focus on making investments in the following industries: automotive components, media and publishing, telecommunications, manufacturing, aerospace, building products, defense and chemicals.
     
  • Provide Global and Local Experience: Carlyle combines strong local presence and understanding of local business issues with a global platform, and in particular with global industry teams for automotive, telecommunications, technology, media, and aerospace.
     
  • Partner with Families: In Europe, Carlyle has developed unparalleled expertise in applying management acumen and strategic experience to solve problems specific to ambitious family-owned businesses seeking to strengthen or grow operations. Frequently this includes resolving divergent views on business strategy, liquidity, succession and capital structure.
     
  • Substantial Financial Support: Carlyle nurtures a well-developed network of banking partners able to mobilize quickly in order to provide complex financing for major investments. The team makes investments in transactions with an overall value of between €300 million and €5 billion.
