The story behind Crest, as told by its founders
Meet the people managing your money
The investment service originated from humble beginnings in the New Forest, conceived by Blake Khalaf and Connor Anderson, who originally met during their early years at college.
Blake took a spirited interest in cryptocurrency whilst studying for an investment module at Winchester University. A year later, he began actively investing, and used the subsequent return on his own portfolio to start Crest with Connor.

Bringing digital assets to both experienced and aspirant investors
Crest was born in May 2018, with the core mission to provide both experienced and aspirant investors unique access to Bitcoin and digital assets through building them a secure and actively managed investment portfolio.
Today, Crest manages £500,000 in digital assets, for 43 individuals, spanning across England, Singapore, Norway and Cayman Islands.
Designed to be dynamic.
The first actively managed digital asset portfolio
Crest Portfolio gives investors active exposure to Bitcoin and digital assets. Featuring 24-hour asset monitoring, giving you dependable downside protection, as well as third-party custodianship, to keep your assets securely stored.
Many other asset and portfolio managers only provide passive exposure to Bitcoin and digital assets. The primary negative of using a passive vehicle stems from the manager’s inability to minimise short-term volatility, which in the context of Bitcoin is an imperative.
