The purchase advances 10X’s evolution into a leading, full-service rules-based investment manager providing a full suite of investment products across the various distribution channels. Also, the deal acknowledges the value-adding role of quality financial advice in various contexts. CoreShares’s significant, established intermediated offering will complement 10X’s strong direct-to-client business.
