The Proof is in our Performance.

Our Returns

Inflation-beating returns.

A rand saved is a rand earned. But thanks to inflation, over time, the value of that rand saved could be much less than when it was earned.

For instance, if the inflation rate is 10%, R100 earned today will be worth just R90 after a year. Therefore, if you want your money to turn into more, you can’t afford to ignore the corrosive impact of rising prices on your investments. You need to invest in a portfolio that delivers returns higher than prevailing inflation rate.

With 10X this is easy. Thanks to our award-winning investment strategy, all of our portfolios have consistently beaten inflation over the past 3, 5, and 7 years, with our 7 year return beating out inflation by an impressive 7.8% Now that’s getting you more!

Our Performance

Beating the Big Fry since day one.

As a smaller provider, we are often asked how we compare to the industry’s biggest players. The perception out there is that size matters, and that large asset managers deliver better returns.

At 10X we are proud to say that we consistently outperform South Africa’s largest fund managers, delivering superior returns before fees.
