Strong governance is fundamental to our business. For most investors, their retirement fund represents their single biggest asset; there is thus a natural concern that this asset is properly managed and protected. Our governance structures establish the necessary security system to safeguard this asset.
Proper governance requires and facilitates complete transparency. Thus, we fully disclose our practices and policies, and provide members (investors), the actual owner of the investment, full insight into every aspect of their retirement plan via the 10X Member Portal.
In addition, we are subject to independent, outside review and, for true transparency, anyone can read our 2016 Trustee report right here.
