Vertu Corporation Limited (VCL) made products for the super-rich that came with hefty price tags. Some Vertu models boasted state of the art technology, superior craftsmanship and materials, as well as bespoke services - including a concierge service which provided 24-hour worldwide assistance to users.

Email addresses and telephone numbers at Vertu were no longer in use when CNBC tried to contact the firm.
