Hilan Berger is joining the fast expanding disruptive asset manager 10X Investments as Head of Institutional Business Development on April 1.

Emma Heap, 10X’s director for business development, says the 35-year-old Chartered Accountant brings a “rare mix of technical financial skills coupled with high emotional intelligence”.

She says someone with Hilan’s background might have been tempted to go the CFO career route “but he really enjoys working with people to develop win-win relationships, which makes him the perfect fit for a customer-focused business like 10X”.

Berger said: “I am incredibly excited to be part of a firm which is disrupting the industry, which is doing the right thing, and which has a compelling offering that will change people’s lives for many, many years.”

Heap adds that she expects Berger to propel the corporate business forward in its mission of helping more companies ensure their employees get better outcomes in their retirement.

Berger, who joins from Consilium Capital, where he is the head of business development, will be the face of the corporate business, engaging with clients and the 10X team.

He has wide and deep experience in financial services having worked at various global groups, including Barclays Capital, HSBC Africa and Standard Chartered Bank, both in South Africa and the UK.
