About Us

Our Principles

At Harvest ETFs, we believe in wealth creation and preservation through investment in leading businesses, long-term growth industries, or secular trends. Our philosophy guides the composition of all Harvest ETFs, including our fixed income ETFs, which provides investors with exposure to US treasury ETFs with high credit ratings. This approach is designed to offer balanced and resilient portfolios, aligning with our commitment to delivering sustainable returns over the long term.

Our Story

Harvest Portfolios Group was founded in 2009 as the financial crisis was still simmering and markets were unstable. President and CEO Michael Kovacs saw that, amidst the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, there was opportunity. Global markets were in turmoil and investor sentiment was poor. However, amidst the financial inferno, a few large businesses delivered what they always had; value for shareholders. In 2016 we launched Harvest ETFs to bring our brand of Equity Income Investing to all Canadians through open market trading on the TSX.

In the nearly 15 years since the founding of the company, Harvest has succeeded by focusing on wealth creation. We invest in strong, growth-oriented businesses and utilize a covered call strategy for income generation. Recently, we have expanded to include exposure to high grade US treasury bonds with covered calls for higher monthly income.

Our Approach

At Harvest, we believe that wealth is created and preserved by owning leading businesses and high-quality fixed income securities. That’s why Harvest ETFs are invested in leading businesses with a focus on long-term growth industries or secular major-trends. We take a similar approach with our fixed income ETFs which provide indirect exposure to quality US treasuries with long duration and high credit ratings.
