CREST

CREST is CrestCo's real-time settlement system for UK and Irish shares and other corporate securities. CrestCo has provided settlement systems for government bonds and money market instruments in the UK since 1990.

CREST

The central securities depository for many British and Irish securities. In particular, it is used to settle gilts in the United Kingdom. Using CREST carries tax advantages for U.K. investors. It allows shares to be traded between investors without the physical certificates needing to change hands. Euroclear has owned it since 2002.

Crest

a paperless settlement system which was introduced in 1996 to cut the costs and speed up the completion of dealings on the UK STOCK MARKET. Under Crest, STOCK and SHARE transactions are recorded electronically, in contrast to the existing parallel system (TALISMAN) which involves the issue of settlement papers and share certificates. However, as with Talisman, investors will still receive a contract note from their broker to confirm their purchase or sale.
