LSEG appoints David Harris to lead Sustainable Finance product team
London Stock Exchange Group plc (LSEG) today announces the appointment of David Harris to lead its Sustainable Finance product team, part of the Data & Analytics division.
Since joining FTSE in 2002, David Harris has played a critical role in building FTSE Russell’s sustainable finance index and data starting with the now widely recognised FTSE4Good Index Series, before supporting the development of a wide variety of products including FTSE Russell’s Smart Sustainability, Green Revenues, Climate indexes and associated data analytics.
In his new role, Mr Harris will report to Stuart Brown, Group Head of Enterprise Data Solutions, and will build on the ongoing investment in ESG and sustainable investment indexes, data and analytics products, whilst utilising Refinitiv’s capabilities.
In this role, Mr Harris will drive an integrated approach to sustainable finance within LSEG’s Data & Analytics division, while bringing new products to market in this fast-evolving area. He will also chair an internal cross organisation working group, working in partnership with the FTSE Russell Sustainable Investment team and across various businesses as they invest in this high-demand space to meet customer needs.
David Harris, Global Head of Sustainable Finance, Data & Analytics, said:
“Sustainable finance is now close to the tipping point where it will become the norm. The finance and investment community can drive the solutions to secure a sustainable and net zero emission future. To achieve this there is a need for robust data and analytics. I am excited about our opportunity to collaborate across all client types to help join up the marketplace, to innovate, and to help solve the challenges in the integration of sustainability into the core of capital markets”.
