More than 475,000 people have taken out a pre-paid funeral plan with this Glasgow company since it started in 1990. Under chief executive Ronnie Wayte, 50, Golden Charter has quadrupled net fees to £37.8m in the past five years, having restructured the business to sell direct to customers rather than solely through funeral directors. Owned by an association of independent funeral directors, the company also sells legal services, including wills.
