10X is disrupting the investment industry to help ordinary people like your mother, grandfather or friend, get dramatically better value for their long-term savings and lead more dignified lives in retirement. The investment industry is largely self-serving, complex and expensive and produces poor value for most people – just ask anyone who has saved their whole life in a RA or pension fund or tried to understand how to invest at retirement.
10X is challenging this unjust industry by providing a simple, direct low fee investment solution.
We’re on a mission to build a customer-centric tech-enabled company – think Amazon not CNA. We’ve got an outstanding eleven-year track record delivering industry-beating returns at lower costs with operational excellence and exceptional client retention. But we’ve only just started. We need great people to help us achieve our dreams. Sure, it’s a big challenge but what’s the point spending your life doing easy, unimportant, me too things?
If you are a passionate, determined, smart, self-starting, ambitious independent thinker that wants to make a positive difference to people’s long-term financial wellbeing, then we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for an investment product specialist to manage, maintain and develop 10X’s investment, pre- and post- retirement products. These include a Collective Investment Scheme Manco, Living Annuity, UCITS IV feeder-fund and Funds established in terms of the Pension Fund Act.
