So, I wonder if everyone who is following Softbank's lead will have the iron stomach to take those kind of losses, if market crashes.
> Telecom giant Softbank Group set up a business entity based in the Cayman Islands to operate an investment fund four years ago. The name of the company's CEO, Masayoshi Son, was mentioned in one of the documents.
> Softbank says it registered the investment fund there to avoid dual taxation for its investors.
While suspicious, this seems like too little evidence to support a broad statement such as "softbank is the acceptable face of dodgy money".
