Since its founding, Carlyle Summits have served as a champion of civil dialogue. The Principals and Advisors of Carlyle have developed over 100 Summits hosted in partnership with leading institutions in the United States, Europe, and Asia.


Carlyle Summits are by-invitation convenings of our family wealth-holder and sovereign wealth fund community, hosted by accomplished institutions with participation by foundations and world-class innovators from both the private-sector and not-for-profit sector.  Summit themes are selected in consultation with our Members and have included health and wellness, sustainability, education, the arts and culture.

The objectives of Carlyle Summits are to engage with family wealth holder peers beyond an existing network of relationships, to share knowledge and experience, to enable relationship building, and to support innovation through philanthropy and impact investing.  A defining quality of Carlyle Summits is our shared desire for collaboration combined with a passion for action and durable results.

Our family wealth-holder Members host the Carlyle Summit social program in order to help foster relationship building and meaningful collaboration that will endure post-summit.

The arts and culture form an important part of the Carlyle Summit experience.

Recent performances have included Yo-Yo Ma’s Grammy Award Wining Silk Road Ensemble, the Handel & Haydn Orchestra, the Sphinx Virtuosi and members of La Scalla at the Monaco Opera House.
