The Carlyle Group has closed its Carlyle Global Infrastructure Opportunity Fund at $2.2 billion, Carlyle spokeswoman Christa Zipf said in an email.
The fund invests in transportation and logistics, energy and power, water and agricultural projects in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries.
It has already closed or announced several projects in the U.S. including Terminal One at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Lone Star Ports Harbor Island Crude Export Terminal in Texas and Crimson Midstream Holdings, a crude oil transportation and storage services provider in California, Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico.
Investors in the fund include the $14.5 billion Maine Public Employees Retirement System, Augusta, and $884 million Louisiana State Police Retirement System, Baton Rouge.
Separately, Carlyle Group also closed its $2.4 billion Carlyle Credit Opportunities Fund, its first middle-market direct lending fund, exceeding its $2 billion target.
