Data from Infrastructure Investor’s Research & Analytics team shows that there are currently 1,478 limited partners (LPs) that have indicated appetite to invest into infrastructure funds. 

The energy sector is most popular among LPs with 65 percent keen to invest in this sector. Of these 959 LPs, 40 percent are based in North America. This is good news for GPs as there are more funds in market targeting energy investments than any sector as Energy funds represent 58% of all funds currently in market.

Despite a majority of LPs displaying a preference for the energy sector, there are still a number of LPs seeking to invest in a diversified manner, which would indicate that they do not have a specific sector preference. Just over one third of funds on the road are following diversified strategies.
