Harvest Technology was formed in 2000 by Sam Natarajan, Founder/CEO, based on a
very simple realization: Wall Street clients need technologists who can deliver
business results, quickly, and without much handholding.
We observed that when financial services firms formed technology teams that were
aligned with business units, they achieved successful outcomes – making money, improving
information flow, eliminating redundancies, and identifying bottlenecks in workflows.
Within three months of opening our doors, we had landed three of the leading firms
on Wall Street as our clients; we’ve never looked back since. We have found our
niche over the last ten years as a domain expert consultancy in the hedge fund,
prime brokerage, and fund administration space.
We have been privileged to have great clients and employees, and the opportunity
to work in the financial services industry during a decade of the greatest market
volatility and organizational turmoil – a consultant’s dream. We have withstood
challenges from offshore consulting, product vendors, other consultants, and an unprecedented
collapse of the financial services sector. We have seen many of our competitors fall
due to the challenges in sustaining a viable consulting services practice.
We have maintained a high professional standard to our work, characterized by a
deep commitment to our clients, with a win-win approach to offering our services.
We operate with minimal overhead, with the belief that by eschewing luxuries, we
can survive in difficult times. As a small firm, we don’t have
the budget of the large management consulting firms or product vendors, who spend
significant amounts of money on marketing, entertainment, and client gifts. All
of our work comes from personal references and word-of-mouth, which means that our
work speaks for us. We have also donated over $66,000 to various
with contributions every year since our inception.
Harvest Technology has been certified as a Minority Business Enterprise by the NY & NJ Minority Supplier Development Council.
