The Troubled Saga of Masa Son's $100 Billion Fund



SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son’s Vision Fund has been impossible to ignore since its inception, pumping billions upon billions of dollars into tech companies like WeWork and Uber. Now, a string of high-profile losses and the coronavirus pandemic have put the fund deeply in the red. Bloomberg journalists Pavel Alpeyev, Sarah McBride and Tim Culpan break down the controversial investment strategies that have led to this critical moment for Son’s unprecedented fund.

  1. I never believed in Softbanks industry analysis and "vision" , as said in the vedio only alibaba is left in the portfolio that has been profitable that to is a lie their is no fundamental strength in alibaba no moats in business other than the local government backing essentially making it a monopoly in the local market, but imagine a pandemic in 2005 and how it would have affected Amazon it would have most certainly failed, so until you succeed you are a failure.

  2. it's simple: it's not his money, he's already a billionaire. The whole thing could be a money laundering scheme as well. He might be getting paid for helping to launder without anyone knowing. And say he gets lucky, one of his multi-billion dollar investment will turn into the next Alibaba, granting him a 10,000x return.

  3. you can't call it a failure,
    they own many winning golden eggs investment,
    ARM, Uber, slack, didi chuxing, NVIDIA and multiple unicorn startup from asian
    the wework incident was bad, but it still far from killing the whole vision fund,
    you should hire a better analyst and fire the news guy

  4. First of all, he can manage 100 billion dollars. He has experience and skill. He is gonna do it again easily. Lots of companies lose money on pandemic time. This doesn't mean anything to me. Also, we love to come backstories. But wework was a disaster I agree!
