Transforming a culture: savers to investors

Stock market investments are the world’s largest source of wealth.

Our History

Folionet’s history begins with its founder, Juan Lorenzo Santos, who spent more than 10 years advising high net worth individuals in investments and the stock market. During this period, he visited Latin America and Europe, where he realized that most people were isolated from the investment market because they believed they did not have enough capital to get started.

Knowing the importance of an investment account to increase a person’s wealth, Juan Lorenzo began to explore options without finding a solution.

This search led in 2014 to the creation of Folionet in Miami, Florida. Folionet began breaking barriers by offering investment accounts, with no minimums required, for those who had never had access to the investment world.

Enthusiastic about teaching people how to invest, Juan Lorenzo continues to offer weekly lectures and seminars to support those who are just starting out. (See calendar of presentations).
