Solution introduction

CRESTBridge is a resilient, richly functional interface to Euroclear UK & Ireland's CREST service, highly regarded for its reliability and ease of integration with back office systems

Success in CREST integration
Ever since Euroclear UK & Ireland's CREST was inaugurated, Trace Financial has been helping brokers, asset managers, custodians, clearers and settlement banks to integrate successfully with the service.

Supporting all CREST transaction types, CRESTBridge meets the needs of registrars and transfer agents as well as regular stock-holding members. 

The success story continues today. Since Euroclear UK & Ireland launched CREST Funds Settlement, both 'provider' and 'distributor' side companies have selected CRESTBridge to meet their integration needs. 

A focus on transactions
CRESTBridge is much more than a technical interface to CREST. It provides the business operations team with everything needed to ensure that transactions are reliably settled at CREST day after day.

Inputting transactions is simple, either by setting up message flows from back-office systems, using any convenient format, or by using CRESTBridge’s intuitive browser-based GUI. Monitoring transactions through to settlement is handled automatically by CRESTBridge.

Status changes can be notified to back-office systems in full ‘granular’ detail, or only on selected key events. Alerts identify potential settlement problems to users, who can use the CRESTBridge’s full range of transaction browse and detail functions to identify any problems. 

Priority changes, freeze/unfreeze, deletion, and splits can also be input manually into CRESTBridge where needed, to resolve settlement problems quickly.

CRESTBridge handles all kinds of special cases with ease: alleged transactions or deletions, third party and centrally generated transactions, splitting and partialling and more.
