From Our Website

Founded in 2008, Harvest Volatility Management ("Harvest") is a leading options and volatility risk management-focused investment firm that offers a robust suite of actively-managed options-based strategies that span yield enhancement overlays, risk reduction, alternative beta, and absolute return investment solutions. Investors can expect returns from fixed income in 2021 to once again be challenging at best, making a strategic asset allocation framework focused on total return while finding alternative ways to generate yield key.


From our start in 2008, Harvest Co-founders Rick Selvala and Curt Brockelman have built an expert team with many decades of experience advising, structuring and managing option related strategies. Each member of our team brings essential knowledge, perspective and insight that drives our strategies. HVM was launched in April of 2008 and manages a suite of options-based strategies that seek to either (a) add yield to client portfolios; (b) reduce risk in client portfolios; (c) reshape the return distribution of certain investments; (d) provide alternative sources of beta; and/or (e) improve the risk-adjusted returns of client portfolios.
