May 23 2011 | 2:31pm ET

The Carlyle Group made $3 billion in commitments in the first quarter, nearly half as much as it invested all of last year.

The Washington, D.C.-based private equity giant said in its annual report to clients that it invested $7 billion last year, 35% more than the $5.2 billion it invested in 2009. The firm raised $4.2 billion in 2010.

"We are pleased that Carlyle continues to earn the confidence of its investors even during the most turbulent times," co-founders William Conway, Daniel D'Aniello and David Rubenstein wrote.

"The past year has been a period of exciting change and growth at Carlyle with new people, new geographies and new businesses," Rubenstein added.

Carlyle said last month that it had made $6.4 billion in distributions in the first quarter.
