from - Carlyle doubles return to investors

The Carlyle Group returned $5.3 billion to investors last year, more than double the $2.1 billion it returned the previous year, according to a summary the firm released Monday, Feb. 14, of its investment activities for 2004.

"It was our best year ever," said William Conway Jr., the Washington-based private-equity group's co-founder and managing director.

Who is the Carlyle Group? Take a look.

And how do they make so much long green? They would prefer that you don't look, but you might want to sneak a peek.

I guess it is kinda like rooting for a sports team -- the rest of us are supposed to just bask in the reflected glory while our heroes take home the spoils.
