The Carlyle Group posted further gains in the third quarter, but fell far shy of its goals.
The private-equity giant said its funds rose 4% during the quarter. The return is slightly below the 4.7% achieved by the Standard & Poor's 500 Index, but only half the 8% jump posted by Carlyle's preferred benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index.
Carlyle's carry fund valuations are up 13% for the year.
The Washington, D.C.-based firm's growth-capital funds rose 7% on the quarter. Its buyout funds added 5%, its real-estate funds 3% and its global market strategies funds 2%. The firm's energy funds were flat.
