European fixed income ETF provider Tabula has received authorisation from the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) to distribute its funds in Spain.
Combined with Tabula’s existing registration in Portugal, this gives a robust Iberian presence as investors in Spain and Portugal now have access to Tabula’s full range of ETFs designed to target specific risk factors in fixed income.
“Investment in ETF strategies continues to grow at a rapid rate, and we can see strong appetite from Spanish and Portuguese investors. Our ETFs offer significant benefits to fixed income investors, both in enhancing returns and managing specific risks. Our goal is to make them available to asset managers and institutional investors across Europe,” says Tabula CEO Michael John Lytle.
“Specifically, we have had requests from Iberia, and so we are pleased to be able to offer the funds to Spanish and Portuguese investors – a dynamic and sophisticated investor base” adds Lytle.
Tabula ETFs are now passported to 15 countries in Europe. The fund range includes European credit funds that minimise interest rate risk while delivering full credit exposure. Tabula also has an innovative credit volatility fund designed to generate returns with a low correlation to traditional benchmarks.
Tabula is continuing to develop products to meet the needs of the European institutional investor; its pipeline includes inflation, corporate bonds, liquidity solutions, blended portfolios, ESG and Solvency II-efficient funds.
Tabula ETFs can be traded on the London Stock Exchange, BX Swiss and Börse Berlin, with other exchanges pending. In Spain, the local agent for Tabula ETFs is Selinca.
