The conglomerate, National Industries Group, invested $50 million in the fund, which was marketed to investors in other Carlyle funds as a safe fund that would invest largely in triple A mortgage-backed securities, the newspaper reported.

"Arab money made Carlyle what it is," said the head of the investment bank of one major financial institution in Dubai - according to FT.
