A pair of managing partners who help oversee SoftBank Group Corp.’s Vision Fund and Vision Fund 2 are leaving to join a new investment firm led by the platform’s key architect Rajeev Misra, according to people with knowledge of the matter. 

Yanni Pipilis and Munish Varma, both managing partners at SB Investment Advisers, which oversees SoftBank’s Vision Fund operation, notified their teams of their pending departures to the new startup, said the people, who requested anonymity as the communications are private. Their exits are slated to occur in coming weeks, after a period of transition, some of the people said.
