Fixed income ETF provider Tabula Investment Management has listed its first ETF on the German market.

The firm listed the Tabula JP Morgan Global Credit Volatility Premium Index UCITS ETF (TVOL) on Xetra on 23 August.

TVOL, which was launched in March, is the first of four ETFs the firm is planning to list on Xetra.

This means 26 issuers now have ETFs listed in Frankfurt.

Michael John Lytle (pictured), CEO of Tabula, commented: “There is a growing need for more innovative fixed income tools to manage risk and navigate markets, and we are excited to be able to offer this product to German investors.”

Martin Reck, managing director cash market at Deutsche Börse, added: “The first ETF from the Tabula product series expands our range of bond ETFs with additional access to the credit default swap market.”

TVOL looks to capture the volatility risk premia from selling short-term credit options in European and US high yield while daily hedging exposure to underlying credit spreads.

Tabula has been active in making its products available across Europe this summer. Earlier this month, the firm received approval from Spain's regulator to distribute products in the country while in June it entered the Swiss ETF market by listing five ETFs.
