The fund, which invested in several notable companies ranging from Uber, Grab, ByteDance, and many others, reported $13 billion in gains for Q4 2020.

A large part of Vision Fund's gains can be attributed to DoorDash going public, as well as Uber's rise in market capitalization.

As of early 2021, SoftBank's $7.7 billion investment in Uber was worth $11.3bn, while its $680 million investment in DoorDash was valued at $9 billion.

As of December 31st 2020, close to half of Vision Fund's investments were exited or listed.

SoftBank shares have risen over 200% since mid-March.
