Clearing House Electronic Subregister System (CHESS)

Definition

The Clearing House Electronic Subregister System (CHESS) is owned and operated by the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and is used to register securities and transfer their exchange. Typically, a stockbroker registers investors' securities in CHESS for them, since the average citizen cannot access the system. Legally, CHESS handles all equity securities.
