Custodian - Our Story

Custodian was created 25 years ago by John L Fitzgerald to support one of the projects closest to his heart: Toogoolawa Schools.

Custodian is part of JLF Group of Companies, John Leonard Fitzgerald's first property investment establishment, 42 years ago.

Our mission has been to educate and empower everyday Australians on the true potential of Real Estate investment and the true value of Land.

Custodian Clients are the best testament to the success of our mission, and for this reason, we are continuing to educate today.

Land is the Foundation of All Wealth

Land is the highest performing growth asset in Australia. Land is the 'real' part of 'real estate'. Custodian company is the Investment Land Specialist. There is simply no other. 

Through Custodian Network Education we have been educating Australians on the science of building wealth using real estate for more than 20 years. Since then, we have helped over 250,000 Australians.

Over this time, this real estate has delivered our investors an average annual return on equity of more than 40%. Our work has always been based on one key investment principle identified by our CEO John L. Fitzgerald, the writer of 7 Steps to Wealth book.

"Land is the Foundation of All Wealth."

Land values have grown significantly faster than house prices in every capital city.

At Custodian, we live and breathe real estate - we know that it is the path to growth and wealth and that “property” is simply what sits on the real estate to give us cashflow and leverage.

So why does land outperform? It’s all to do with supply and demand. Land is a commodity which is limited in supply. You can’t make anymore. The demand for land continually grows as the population increases. “Bricks and mortar” is not in limited supply.

Start today and change your outlook for tomorrow:

1. Attend an event

2. Read the book


You’re in good hands
