Tabula expands ETF distribution to Spain

Tabula ETFs are now registered for distribution in 15 European countries.

The announcement comes after Spain’s regulator, the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV), granted approval for the ETFs to be marketed in the country.

Madrid-based investment service company Selinca will act as the local agent for Tabula ETFs in Spain.

Combined with existing registration in Portugal, Tabula will now enjoy a robust Iberian presence.

Michael John Lytle, CEO of Tabula Investment Management, commented, “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.

“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.”

Tabula ETFs are now registered for distribution in 15 European countries and are available to trade on the London Stock Exchange, BX Swiss, and Börse Berlin.

Its roster of products includes leveraged investment-grade credit, long and short high-yield credit, and credit volatility premia ETFs.
