How does H1 infra fundraising compare with other asset classes?

Infrastructure, private equity, real estate and private debt have raised a collective $371bn during the first half of the year.

With H1 unlisted fundraising figures now published in all our sister publications, we thought it was a good time to see how infrastructure – set for a record 2019 haul of around $100 billion – fared against other alternative asset classes. The verdict? It’s still the junior member among them.

Also, while private real estate and private debt recorded, respectively, the highest and second-highest hauls since the global financial crisis, both private equity and infrastructure registered slight decreases (7 percent for PE; 4 percent for infra) in relation to H1 2018.
