Infrastructure fundraising in Mexico picked up rapidly in 2018, according to stock exchange filings and the government website &l;a href=&q;https://www.proyectosmexico.gob.mx/en/home/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Proyectos Mexico&l;/a&g;.

Both the number of new funds and the amount raised reached record highs last year. Fundraising in Mexico picked up rapidly in 2018, with fundraising of new and previous funds 38.5% higher than in 2017 and more than double compared to 2016.

But how these funds will be allocated is open to question given the context of cancellations and delays in project procurement by the new presidential administration, such as the $13 billion Mexico City airport project.

Of the 26 large infrastructure and energy funds (&l;a href=&q;https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/mx/Documents/tax/FIBRA-E-Tax-Eng.pdf&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Certificates of Capital Development &a;ndash;CKD&a;ndash; and Certificates of Project Investment &a;ndash;CERPI&a;ndash;&l;/a&g;) launched in Mexico, eight were launched in 2018, with over $420 million of capital raised.

Nevertheless, not every company was able to find success during a tough period. Newell Brands (NYSE:NWL), TrueCar (NASDAQ:TRUE), and XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) were among the worst performers.
