Carlyle Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Kewsong Lee is working on post-election plans and helping employees avoid burnout, while continuing to pursue deals, especially outside the U.S.

The firm has invested about $1.5 billion in Asia alone this year, mostly in health-care and technology, Lee said in an interview that aired Thursday on Bloomberg Television. He and his team also are eyeing tax changes, regulatory shifts and fiscal stimulus that may come in the wake of the U.S. election next month.
