The firm debuted its first ETF in September 2018 on the London Stock Exchange and has sought to disrupt the fixed income ETF market by launching strategies that were previously only accessible to institutional investors.

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

“Through ETFs, we are focused on delivering a wide range of fixed income factors that were previously only available to sophisticated investors,” said Tabula CEO Michael John Lytle.

“As investor appetite grows, we believe there is a real need for a comprehensive range of fixed income tools that help manage investor exposure and express their market views. We are excited to be able to offer these products into the local Swiss market.”

Harald Schnabel, CEO of BX Swiss, added, “The addition of Tabula’s fixed income ETFs significantly expands the variety of products already available for trading in Switzerland and with this in mind, we extend a warm welcome to our new ETF issuer on BX Swiss AG. With Tabula, we have gained a very promising new European ETF provider.”

The listings on BX Swiss, outlined below, represent the first time that Tabula’s ETFs have been listed outside of London.
