The Vision Raising Fund of the SoftBank will now be raising $4 billion in the form of debts. The step is to help the bank finance acquisitions. The bank has also hired Goldman Sachs and Mizuho to help it plan on the deal.

This transaction is supposed to be the first test for the appetite of the debt investor. The appetite will be for the technology fund backed by Saudi. It is because of the crisis which stroke the country due to the murder of a journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who was important for the authorities of Saudi.

About $45 billion for the fund was provided by Saudi Arabia. The discontent with the ties of SoftBank to the kingdom has shown its effects on the shares of the company.

Investors from other sovereign countries including the Mubadala of Abu Dhabi have time to give money to the funds for acquisition which they had committed earlier but have not been drawn on it.
