Japanese Softbank's $100 Billion Fund 'Anxious' Over Kashoggi Fate

Japanese conglomerate and tech investor SoftBank is under scrutiny over its ties to Saudi Arabia, a major backer of its $100 billion Vision Fund.

That is thanks to global outcry over the status of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is feared dead after he was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia's crown prince pledged $45 billion to SoftBank's next $100 billion Vision Fund.
