DOWNLOAD: 2019 fundraising off to a strong start

With nearly $20bn raised in Q1, expect 2019 to be another record-breaking year for infrastructure fundraising.

Fundraising in Q1 2019 appeared to mark a continuation of the momentum we witnessed last year, with $19.96 billion raised across six funds. Fund sizes got bigger, underscoring the trend towards greater concentration: the average fund reached $3.3 billion, a significant jump from the $1.4 billion raised across 11 vehicles in Q1 2018.

With EQT reaching a €9 billion final close on its Infrastructure Fund IV and Ardian raising €6.1 billion for its Infrastructure Fund V, Europe-focused fundraising surged in Q1.
