Of the top 10 most active investors, only the European Investment Bank does not heavily favour North America – all the others place North America first, or second only to a multi-regional focus.
Predictably, the EIB favours Europe. Of the other nine – all of which are headquartered in the US – six have a regional focus on North America, two give equal weighting to North American and multi-regional strategies, and only one has prioritised a multi-regional approach over a specific one.
All figures are for the number of commitments made over the past five years.
Between them, the top 10 have allocated $181.8 billion globally to infrastructure since the start of 2014.
