Creating opportunities and realizing the full potential of an investment often requires expanding boundaries and looking beyond borders. Carlyle’s Real Assets business provides access to diversified investment opportunities across the real assets value chain globally. Our platform and extensive network of relationships in local markets allow for coordinated deal generation across multiple sectors and geographies. Today, our Real Assets businesses manage $40 billion in real estate, infrastructure and energy assets around the world.

Real Estate

Carlyle’s ten active real estate funds offer our global investors unique access to opportunities in Europe and the United States. Our funds focus on acquiring single-property assets rather than large-cap companies with real estate portfolios.  Our team of over 100 real estate investment professionals has made more than 1,200 investments, including, but not limited to, residential and retail properties, industrial properties, self-storage properties, office buildings and hotels. Today our real estate funds manage more than $18 billion in assets.



Carlyle’s infrastructure business is comprised of teams that invest in six primary sectors: energy infrastructure, water and waste, transportation, digital infrastructure, power generation and renewables. We manage more than $4 billion in assets across four funds including our global infrastructure opportunities fund, our North American power fund and our new renewable and sustainable energy strategy launched in 2019. Carlyle’s infrastructure funds present our investors with a scalable platform across the full spectrum of infrastructure sectors, geographies, durations and risk-return profiles.

Our energy investments focus on buyouts, growth capital and strategic joint ventures in the midstream, upstream, energy and oilfield services sectors around the world. Currently, we conduct our North American energy investing through our partnership with NGP, an Irving, Texas-based energy investor. NGP advises eight funds with more than $10 billion in assets under management. In addition, our international energy investment team focuses on investments across the energy value chain outside of North America and manages more than $6 billion in assets across two funds.
