Extreme value theory for a class of stochastic volatility models, in which the logarithm of the conditional variance follows a Gaussian linear process, is developed. A result for the asymptotic tail behavior of the transformed stochastic volatility process is established and used to prove that the suitably normalized extremes converge in distribution to the double exponential (Gumbel) distribution. Explicit normalizing constants are obtained, and point process convergence is discussed.
