President and CEO
Under the guidance of Michael Kovacs, Harvest Portfolios continues to expand and bring innovative products to market. Harvest saw its AUM grow by 39.3% in 2020, bringing it past the $1 billion mark, and the company’s blockchain ETF (HBLK) was one of the five best-performing ETFs (YTD) to begin 2021.
Harvest has also launched some unique offerings in 2021. Positioned to capitalize on the post-pandemic travel rebound, the Harvest Travel & Leisure Index ETF (TRVL) is the world’s first truly diversified travel fund across five sub-sectors: airlines, cruise companies, booking sites, resorts and casinos, and hotels. Harvest also rolled out one of Canada’s first clean energy ETFs (HCLN), as well as a Space Innovation Index ETF (ORBT) that will benefit from the burgeoning growth and development in space innovation, exploration, tourism and infrastructure
