The country's sovereign fund will make another $45 billion investment in Son's second massive Vision Fund. The Public Investment Fund is set to make the investment as it looks for ways to deploy a $170 billion windfall it's expecting over the next three to four years.That would bring the PIF's contribution to the two funds to $90 billion, he said.Speaking at an event in Riyadh last year, Son said that investments made by the first Vision Fund were already paying off. The fund had made a return of over 20 percent in its first five months, he said.Making another significant investment in SoftBank's next Vision Fund would help the PIF boost its assets, which have already risen to more than $300 billion, Prince Mohammad said.
