Investment Implementation Analyst - Cape Town

About 10X Investments:

10X Investments 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 eight 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?
