LPs & fundraising: preparing for a tougher investing environment

Funds that invest in infrastructure and renewable energy raised a record USD 45.57bn in first, second or third closes in the six months through June, offsetting the worst first half for final closes in more than a decade.

This helped mitigate the impact of 17 investment vehicles raising just USD 7.23bn in final closes in the six months through June, the least since the first half of 2012 

Activity slumped to USD 3.9bn raised by six funds in the second quarter of this year.

  • What types of funds are LPs galivanting towards?  
  • How are LPs looking at energy funds compared to more general infrastructure funds?
  • How much of an impact does the so-called denominator effect have on fundraising? Are some LPs willing to exceed allocation caps?
  • Several GPs executed secondary deals in 2022 to hold onto assets longer. Are LPs open to more GP-led secondary transactions?
  • Are there any openings for new GPs to raise inaugural funds?
