DOWNLOAD: Modest Q3 fundraising foreshadows strong Q4

The $49.5bn raised during the first nine months of the year paves the way for a bumper Q4, featuring final closes for Brookfield and GIP's mega-funds.

Infrastructure Investor‘s Q3 Fundraising Report is now available for download.

At first glance, the $49.5 billion raised during the first nine months of the year pales in comparison to the $85.2 billion amassed during the same period last year. In fact, Q3 2019 is the third-lowest Q3 fundraising for unlisted, closed-ended infrastructure funds since 2013.

But as we’ve previously written, that doesn’t necessarily mean 2019 will be a bad fundraising year. Quite the opposite – it’s looking like a record-breaking one, thanks to final closes for the fourth flagship funds being raised by Brookfield Asset Management and Global Infrastructure Partners. The latter is set to raise $22 billion for Fund IV with Brookfield expected to also close its vehicle around the $20 billion mark.
