Folkestone is an ASX listed real estate fund manager and developer providing real estate wealth solutions for private clients and select institutions. Folkestone is named after a town on the English Channel is south-east English. This port town was known for its production of quern-stones, an innovative tool created in the Iron Age for food production, which became a valuable item for trade and hence wealth. To us the quern-stone represents innovation, partnership and radiating growth, qualities that we at Folkestone identify with. We have adopted an abstract interpretation of the quern-stone as our brand mark to remind us that we are a dynamic, connected, innovative team creating exceptional opportunities with outstanding investment results for our investors.
