The Carlyle Group Numbers

It pays to be an insider,a real major league insider.

Carlyle owns 224 companies, from Hertz to Dunkin' Donuts; employs 950 professionals; and manages $82.7 billion from clients in 68 countries.

Forty-one percent of Carlyle's investors are pension funds, and 32 percent are financial institutions, according to its annual report. Most of the rest are wealthy individuals.

Carlyle was founded by Daniel D'Aniello, William Conway Jr. and David Rubenstein. Forbes estimates that all three are billionaires. The company last year returned $8.9 billion in equity and profit to investors, its second richest year, after 2006, when it gave back $10.2 billion, according to its annual report.
