Infrastructure Investor’s Research & Analytics examines unlisted infrastructure fund size changes using geometric mean and arithmetic mean. As indicated in the chart above, both methods show that average size of 2014Q1 closed funds is the largest compared to the annual numbers of 2010 to 2013.

The 2 largest funds closed in 2014Q1 were the $2.08 billion LS Power Equity Partners III and the $2 billion KKR Energy Income & Growth Fund. The capital corralled by these 2 funds already accounted for 56% of the total capital ($7.3 billion by 9 funds) raised in Q1.
