Q3/18 first look: Fundraising volume sets quarterly and 12-month records

Infrastructure fundraising reached new heights in the third quarter, according to IREI’s FundTracker database. Sixteen funds registered final closings, raising a record $39.8 billion of equity. Year-to-date, 35 infrastructure funds have closed with more than $69.4 billion raised, which already puts 2018 in the record books as the year with the highest 12-month fundraising volume.

There was a lot of fanfare and lip service paid to boosting infrastructure in the months leading up to and following the election of Donald Trump.

On-site energy production, such as microgrids, cogeneration, fuel cells and solar and wind power, has tremendous potential to increase infrastructure and real estate cash flow by reducing energy bills, commanding higher rents and lowering operating expenses. It is a useful tool, among many, to migrate core investments to value-added and generate higher financial returns without increasing risk.
