Carlyle Group (CG) will become the first major private-equity firm to let relatively small investors participate in its funds by setting the minimum contribution to its new vehicle at $50,000, well below the $5-20M it has traditionally required. Investors will still have to be fairly well off, with a net worth of above $1M - excluding their homes - or income of over $200,000 in each of the two years prior to the investment.

  • Yet another sign of the massive bubble in private equity. If everyone is so convinced interest rates are rising (which I am not), then why would private equity do well? This is an industry that was born out of interest rates that have gone down for 30 years straight. The private equity "industry" did not even exist 20 years ago, now it is a full-fledged industry with far too many participants.

  • Long PE <> short interest rates, it's more complicated. Why use such a shortcut? It does not make sense.
