Gold Traders UK Ltd, a precious metals dealer from Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, named as the 15th Fastest Growing Company on the South of England 2023 Fast Growth 50 index

Royal Wootton Bassett, UK — 10th November 2023 — Gold Traders UK, a company based in Wiltshire, has been recognised as the 15th fastest-growing business in the South of England. This is part of the Fast Growth 50 index for 2023, which identifies the fifty fastest-growing companies across six nations and regions, including the South of England. This achievement underlines Gold Trader’s significant impact on the South of England’s economy and its capacity for growth and innovation.

About the Fast Growth 50

The Fast Growth 50 is an annual index that identifies the top 50 fastest-growing companies in six nations and regions, including the South of England. This year’s index for the South of England has highlighted businesses from multiple sectors that together generated a turnover of just under £1.6 billion, at an average growth rate of 157 percent, with the creation of over 3,153 jobs last year.

Role in the South of England’s Business Scene

Being part of the Fast Growth 50, Gold Traders has shown strong performance and made a positive contribution to the South of England’s business community.

Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, Founder Fast Growth 50 said:

“”The UK Fast Growth 50 Index demonstrates that a small number of fast growth firms such as Gold Traders make a substantial contribution to the UK’s economic landscape, providing real examples of how innovation, enterprise and sheer hard work can make a real difference in all sectors from construction to financial services to technology.

Their incredible growth during difficult times shows that through generating wealth and jobs in their local communities, entrepreneurship is the cornerstone of regional and national prosperity. Most important of all, their success stories demonstrate the impact of ambition and adaptability, providing a blueprint for sustainable growth that will hopefully inspire others to follow a similar journey.”

This year’s Fast Growth 50 South of England list is in partnership with UBS, the world’s leading and truly global wealth manager.

Mark Goddard, Head of UK Regions at UBS Global Wealth Management said:

“Business owners and entrepreneurs are the engine of our economy, and UBS has a long history advising and connecting them on each stage of their wealth journey, helping them to unlock their potential. Led by entrepreneurial spirit and often solving some of the UK’s biggest issues, the level of talent and innovation uncovered through this year’s list shows that more needs to be done to support small businesses to strengthen local economies and give back to the local community. As the lead sponsor of this year’s Fast Growth 50, UBS is looking forward to following and supporting these businesses as they go from strength to strength.”

Quote from Founder/Director

“We’re delighted to have been recognised for our growth and commitment to our customers,” says Jon White, Director at Gold Traders. “Gold Traders was founded in early 2008 on a very simple principle – to offer much better rates for unwanted gold than what’s offered by ‘free envelope’ cash for gold companies. The growth we’ve experienced has facilitated our further development and geographical expansion of the group, with a range of exciting projects including the opening of our Bodmin branch coming in 2024. “

Contribution to Growth and Job Creation

During 2020 to 2022, Gold Traders was instrumental in the Fast Growth 50’s collective turnover increase of £977 million. This highlights the company’s role in the South of England’s economic growth, particularly post-COVID-19.

Diverse Range of Businesses

The Fast Growth 50 features companies from various sectors, adding to the diversity of the South of England’s economy. Gold Traders, with its focus in the precious metals industry, is part of this varied business landscape.

What’s Next for Gold Traders

Looking forward, the Gold Traders Group has plans to further expand following the recent development of the Cornwall team, alongside further growth of the Britannia Coin Company which has just moved into new premises in the heart of Royal Wootton Bassett, and the opening of RWB Auctions, The View Gallery and Quercus Bistro. The Gold Traders Group is looking to bring renewed energy to the high street.
