2012 The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250

Rank: 11   BullionVault.com

Shareholders: Paul Tustain (45%), business angels (23%), corporate investors (22%), employees (10%)

Thwarted in his attempt to buy a bar of gold for less than $500,000, computer programmer Paul Tustain was inspired to set up BullionVault.com in 2005, which allows private investors to buy a share in a standard 400oz gold bar. The London company says it has 33,000 customers trading gold and silver online and the high price of gold until mid-2011 helped sales increase 83% to 558.6m.
