You Could Invest in the Vision Fund One Day

Recommended Posts

Wondering why SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son’s been posting all those forearm workouts to IG? Gotta tone that bell-ringing hand as he reportedly considers an IPO for his Vision Fund.

To stick its public landing, the $100 billion Vision Fund, which is famous for plugging tech startups with obscene amounts of money, would have to overcome U.S. rules that restrict average investors from tossing our hard-earned income into risky bets. So there’s a high degree of difficulty.

But SoftBank is keeping busy elsewhere. Execs have been sprinting around the world looking for more funds and more investment opportunities. The WSJ writes that Son just got back from China, where he negotiated with billions “the Vision Fund doesn’t yet have.” And the company’s now in casting calls with investors for Vision Fund 2: The Second Part.

Zoom out: According to Bloomberg’s finance seer Matt Levine, between Musk’s attempt to take Tesla private and the Vision Fund’s attempt at an IPO, “the last few years really have knocked down the boundaries between public and private capital.”
