The Carlyle Group Releases Two Commentaries on the European Economic and Investment Climate

Audio Podcast and Economic Paper See Lower Asset Prices and Incipient Growth

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NAS: CG) today released two commentaries on the European economic and investment climate. In Carlyle's latest ValuCast audio podcast, the Co-Heads of Carlyle's Europe Buyout team, Marco De Benedetti and Gregor Böhm, and Carlyle Chief Economist Jason Thomas discuss the firm's European economic outlook. And in his latest Economic Outlook, Mr. Thomas details generally how Europe's depressed asset prices continue to reflect risks that have since abated.


In ValuCast, Messrs. De Benedetti and Böhm are joined by Mr. Thomas in a discussion ranging from the causes of the economic crisis and investment opportunities in major European countries to asset prices and the availability of credit.

In his Economic Outlook, Mr. Thomas states that price discounts in Europe may have more to do with a fatalistic attitude that ignores specifics, rather than the underlying risks themselves.

Carlyle ValuCast podcasts and Mr. Thomas's Economic Outlook papers are available on the Market Commentary section of Carlyle.com. To subscribe to the ValuCast series, visit iTunes or Carlyle's Alerts and Subscriptions page.
