Carlyle Group, the investment firm whose former advisors include former President George H.W. Bush, said Tuesday that it raised $7.85 billion for the world’s biggest buyout fund. Carlyle’s fund eclipsed the $6.45 billion that New York-based Blackstone Group attracted in 2002.

The new fund will acquire firms in industries including defense and telecommunications.
