About Ovation

Our Story


Driven by steady returns and a conservative approach, Ovation’s investor ranks have expanded since our founding in 2010.

Ovation began during the ‘Great Recession’ as a private investment vehicle funded by its co-founders and General Partners, Mike Rovner and Jeff Serra. At a time when mainstream income investments were producing minimal returns, Jeff and Mike sought to leverage their financial services expertise to source income-generating opportunities with attractive yields and little-to-no correlation to the public markets. Their approach emphasized principal protection, low volatility, and consistent income.


Driven by steady returns and a conservative approach, Ovation’s investor ranks have expanded since our founding in 2010. Today we are responsible for more than $500MM of assets under management across a variety of private credit and specialty finance asset categories.


While Ovation’s team and assets have grown over the years, a few things have remained unchanged. Ovation’s founders are still among its largest investors and the firm remains focused on niche asset categories where expertise matters.
