Discretionary wealth management describes a form of investment management where the client hands over the day to day investment decision making, such as when to trade and what to buy and sell, to a portfolio manager. With a Crystal Asset account, our experienced investment team manages each of your investment accounts according to your chosen account type.
To open an investment account with Crystal Asset you first need to register your details, at which point you will chose an investment account type based on your investment goals and targets. Once you have entered your personal details, investment details and read and confirmed our terms and conditions we will open the account for you. We run automated checks on your identity and you should be able to log into your investment account shortly after registration if the checks go smoothly. You will receive a welcome email once you are registered and verified and you can carry out deposits, withdrawals as well as track your investment performance directly from your online dashboard.
