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.
