It all started in 1981

It all started with a book “7 Steps to Wealth” – written by our CEO John Fitzgerald, who started in Real Estate on the Gold Coast in 1981. The book isn’t ‘get rich quick’ and it’s not rocket science. It uses plain language and real examples to show you how, by building wealth with a proven strategy you can create a life of opportunity and freedom with a secure and comfortable future.

A few years later John realised the book wasn’t enough, so he extended the learning into a seminar model – a true eye-opener and very popular event. In the process, the CUSTODIAN team was born: a combination of data experts and finance strategists ready to assist seminar attendees into taking that next step. In the last 25 years, the Custodian team have been assisting thousands of Australians with their mortgage reduction and portfolio growth.

We believe every Australian deserves to reach financial freedom at their earliest. Our mission is to help them reduce their debt securely to be able to enjoy life with peace of mind when it comes to their finances

Whether they become clients of Custodian or continue on their own path, our seminar attendees have been realizing the impact Real Estate can have in their life, by following a simple strategy.

“It was more than just about the money. There is a sense of integrity with the company and with John Fitzgerald.”

“It has been about 25 years since I joined Custodian. I was looking at different way of earning money because our retirement was looming, and Robert had done very little about retirement because he was never going to retire. After going to John’s event I could see the potential for building something at my age of 55.

“It’s been 13 years since I’ve started the programme and we have used all the advantages that’s available in the tax system to help us pay off our mortgage earlier and use the equity build up in our own home to purchase investment properties and to replicate. That’s been a fair eye opener for me.

“Starting out with Custodian, I thought it was about buying houses, but I soon learned it was much, much more. I fell in love with “…the buzz, personal growth and friendships that are found in mixing with other successful, goal-oriented people.

“Custodian taught us it’s possible to move away from being a dream to making it real, but you have to make the first move”
