TOKYO -- Malaysia's sovereign wealth fund Khazanah Nasional Berhad has held preliminary talks with SoftBank Group about a possible investment in the Japanese conglomerate's $100 billion Vision Fund, two senior sources familiar with the discussions have told Nikkei Asian Review.

Discussions were held in April, five months after Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad formally invited SoftBank Chairman Masayoshi Son to join Khazanah as a director and adviser.
