Who is the World's Top Infrastructure Investor? (Hint: It's not even close)

From Infrastructure Investor:
 At $30.6 billion, Macquarie Group, the Sydney-based investment bank, topped our first annual ranking of the 30 largest infrastructure investors, followed not-so-closely by Goldman Sachs ($9.1 billion), Alinda Capital Partners ($7 billion), Industry Funds Management ($7 billion) and the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System ($6.2 billion).

The rankings are based on Infrastructure Investor's own proprietary methodology that seeks to measure the heft of an investor based on the amount of direct-investment capital the firm has created for the asset class in the last five years.
