The Guernsey-based affiliate of Carlylewas very heavily leveraged, up to 32 times by some accounts, and it expects its creditors to seize its remainingassets.[27] Tremors in the mortgage markets induced several of Carlyles 13 lenders to make margin calls or todeclare Carlyle in default on its loans. [28] In response to the forced liquidation of mortgage-backed assets caused bythe Carlyle margin calls and other similar developments in credit markets, on March 11, 2008, the Federal Reservegave Wall Streets primary dealers the right to post mortgaged-back securities as collateral for loans of up to $200billion in higher-grade, U.S. government-backed securities.[29] On March 12, 2008, BBC News Online reportedthat "instead of underpinning the mortgage-backed securities market, it seems to have had the opposite effect,giving lenders an opportunity to dump the risky asset" and that Carlyle Capital Corp. "will collapse if, as expected,its lenders seize its remaining assets."[30] On March 16, 2008, Carlyle Capital announced that its Class AShareholders had voted unanimously in favor of the Corporation filing a petition under Part XVI, Sec. 96, of theCompanies Law (1994) of Guernsey[31] for a "compulsory winding up proceeding" to permit all its remainingassets to be liquidated by a court appointed liquidator.[32]The losses to the Carlyle Group due to the collapse of Carlyle Capital are reported to be "minimal from a financialstandpoint".[33][edit] AlpInvestMain article: AlpInvest Partners AlpInvest PartnersType PrivateIndustry Private EquityHeadquarters Amsterdam, Netherlands Fund investments, Secondaries, Co-Products Investments, MezzanineTotal assets €42 billion ($55 billion)

W.Bush and his Secretary of State James A. Baker III, both of whom had at times served as advisors to the firm.A Carlyle spokesman noted in 2003 that its 7% interest in defense industries was far less than several other Privateequity firms.[36] Carlyle also has provided detail on its links with the Bin Laden family, specifically the relativelyminor investments by an estranged half brother. [37]In his documentary The World According to Bush (May 2004), William Karel interviewed Frank Carlucci todiscuss the presence of Shafiq bin Laden, Osama bin Ladens estranged brother, at Carlyles annual investorconference while the September 11 attacks were occurring.

  7. 7. Zeitgeist The Movie makes similar claims that The Carlyle Group may have played a part in 9/11.[edit] Controversial LegislationIn February 2008, a US Senate bill was introduced that would increase the regulation of nursing homes such asthose run by HCR Manor Care which Carlyle purchased in December 2007.[39]Also in February 2008, a bill was introduced in California that would have barred CalPERS from investing money"with private-equity firms that are partly owned by countries with poor records on human rights," which wouldinclude Carlyle because Mubadala Development is owned by part of the United Arab Emirates. The California billwas later withdrawn.[40][edit] Notable current and former employees and advisors[edit] Business  G.
