What are CDIs?

A CDI is a CREST Depository Interest. CREST holds all international stocks in a pool, in a local depository such as Clearstream for German stocks and DTC for US stocks. CREST then issues a CDI to each holder of the security, which can then be transferred in CREST just like a UK equity.
