CREST Personal Member Accounts explained

 

This section of the site is intended to answer the most common questions that individual investors ask about the CREST system and the advantages and disadvantages of having a personal CREST account to help readers make the best use of the CREST Personal Members Account comparison table. It is not a technical guide to how the CREST record-keeping and settlement systems work. For that, please see the Euroclear UK and Ireland website and the many reference manuals it contains.
