NEW YORK -- Despite a rough year for SoftBank Group and its investment arm Vision Fund, one Wall Street titan does not hesitate to praise the Japanese conglomerate's leader, Masayoshi Son.

"I'm a big believer in Masa Son," Larry Fink, the founder, chairman and CEO of BlackRock said in an interview with Nikkei. Calling Son "one of the most brilliant investors in the world," Fink said, "Most people in my lifetime... the majority have not done anything close to what Masa Son has done."
