Advancing Solutions and Expanding Opportunities Through our Integrated Platform

Carlyle’s Global Credit platform manages nearly $50 billion in assets across the risk return spectrum: from liquid, to illiquid, to real asset strategies. Since 1999, our platform has leveraged Carlyle’s global scale, network and industry expertise to offer borrowers creative, holistic capital structure solutions. We also work with investors to create value across a wide range of credit strategies.

Managing Risk through Rigorous Due Diligence

Our investors and borrowers see us as a trusted partner, helping drive business growth across market cycles. We have an ability to provide creative structures to borrowers while minimizing downside risk through our rigorous approach to due diligence and credit selection. We are highly selective in our approach and close on less than 5% of originations. We are equally focused on monitoring our credit risk across our portfolios, which has enabled us to minimize our default rate while maximizing long term returns.
