DOWNLOAD: 2019 is infra’s second-best fundraising year

Just $7bn shy of 2018's record-breaking $104bn total, the asset class again proved its attractiveness as it continues towards greater concentration and growing fund sizes.

Last year, infrastructure fundraising may not have set a new record, but it certainly ended on a high note recording a total of $97.3 billion raised.

At $22 billion, Global Infrastructure Partners’ fourth flagship fund accounted for 23 percent of that total, while two European fund managers – EQT and Ardian – raised the second- and third-largest vehicles, respectively.

The data also underscores the industry’s continuing trend towards consolidation, with 61 funds raising slightly more than $97 billion compared to 78 funds raising nearly $104 billion in 2018.
