Carlyle discloses $67m in employee co-investment vehicle

The vehicle is affiliated with the firm’s $1.1bn infrastructure fund, Carlyle Infrastructure Partners, which recently agreed its sixth deal.

Employees of The Carlyle Group’s infrastructure fund have invested $67.1 million in the fund, a regulatory filing shows.

The private equity firm said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that Carlyle Infrastructure Coinvestment, a limited partnership affiliated with the infrastructure fund, Carlyle Infrastructure Partners, has that amount in commitments.  

The filing, dated 8 March, reflects how much money Carlyle Infrastructure Partners' employees have invested in the fund, according to a spokesperson. No new money has been raised. 

A year ago, Carlyle disclosed in a similar regulatory filing that its employees had, at that point, $61.3 million committed to the co-investment vehicle.

Carlyle Infrastructure  Partners closed on $1.1 billion in November 2007. Since then, the fund has agreed six transactions, its latest being the purchase of a $116.5 million stake in Qube Logistics, an Australian logistics business.

The fund is headed by Washington DC-based Robert Dove and New York-based Barry Gold.
