Passive exposure to European credit markets, with minimal interest rate risk.
The Tabula European IG Performance Credit UCITS ETF (EUR) (the Fund) aims to track the iTraxx European IG Performance Credit Index (the ITRXPRIG Index), less fees and expenses.
About the index
The ITRXPRIG Index provides diversified exposure to European corporate credit, primarily investment grade. To emphasise credit risk and reduce direct interest rate risk, it takes exposure via a liquid credit default swap (CDS) index rather than individual corporate bonds:
- iTraxx Europe 5y (125 investment grade entities, equal weight)
The index reflects the return from selling protection on the current series of the CDS index. It takes total market exposure of 400%, rebalanced monthly. Exposure is calculated as the ratio of CDS bond equivalent price to index value, so the ratio of notional to Net Asset Value may not be exactly 400%.
The Fund aims to directly replicate the index composition via CDS index positions and cash collateral (typically investment grade European sovereign bonds with maturity <12 months). To minimise counterparty risk, CDS index trades are executed through regulated brokers and centrally cleared.
The fund is currently registered for sale in Ireland, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.

No capital protection: The value of your investment may go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you invested.
Market risk: The fund is primarily exposed to credit risk. Returns will suffer if there is a default, or higher perceived risk of default, among the entities referenced by the CDS indices, or a write-down (“bail in”) of an entity’s debt by financial authorities. The fund may also be impacted by other factors affecting the value of debt securities issued by those entities, including changes in interest rates and exchange rates. When selling CDS on subordinate debt, such debt may be subordinate to senior debt.
Leverage: The fund uses leverage, so losses may be magnified.
Liquidity risk: If there are insufficient buyers or sellers of CDS indices, the fund may not be able to match index exposure exactly and investors may not be able to buy or sell fund units. Neither the Index provider nor the issuer make any representation or forecast on the liquidity of CDS transactions.
Counterparty risk: The fund may incur losses if any institution providing services or acting as a derivatives counterparty becomes insolvent.
