At this point, SoftBank Group is really just its Vision Fund

Last week, SoftBank Group Corp. Masayoshi Sons holding company for his rapidly expanding collection of businesses reported its fiscal year financials. There were some major headlines that came out of the news, including that the companys Vision Fund appears to be doing quite well and that SoftBank intends to increase its stake in Yahoo Japan.
Now that the dust has settled a bit, I wanted to dive into all 80 pages of the full financial results to see what else we can learn about the conglomerates strategy and future.

The Vision Fund is just dominating the financials


We talk incessantly about the Vision Fund here at TechCrunch, mostly because the fund seems to be investing in every startup that generates revenue and walks up and down Sand Hill looking for capital. During the last fiscal year ending March 31st, the fund added 36 new investments and reached 69 active holdings. The total invested capital was a staggering $60.1 billion.
