Carlyle Group to Go Public

The Caryle Group, the secretive D.C.-based investment giant, has filed paperwork to go public—a move likely to shed light on the company’s dealings for the first time. The group, which manages $150 billion in assets, is preparing for a $100 billion IPO. While the public offering is at least six months away, Carlyle will begin disclosing information to the SEC in waves. Among its investments, Carlyle counts 270 companies, Asian forests, and rest stops along Connecticut highways.
