LSEG Names David Harris to Lead Sustainable Finance Product Team

London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) has named David Harris to lead its sustainable finance product team, part of the data and analytics division. Harris will report to Stuart Brown, group head of enterprise data solutions, and will build on ongoing investment in ESG and sustainable investment indexes, data and analytics products.

Harris will also drive an integrated approach to sustainable finance in the data and analytics division, and chair an internal cross-organisation working group that will work in partnership with the FTSE Russell sustainable investment team and other businesses as they invest in sustainable finance to meet customer demand.

David Craig, group head of data and analytics and CEO at Refinitiv, says: “As our customers across financial markets respond to the global challenge of allocating capital sustainably, this critical role is designed to ensure a focused sustainable finance strategy across LSEG.”

Harris joined FTSE in 2002 and has played a leading role in building FTSE Russell’s sustainable finance index and data. He started with the 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. He has also been involved in group-wide initiatives such as the development of ESG disclosure and reporting guidance for London Stock Exchange listed companies, and the Green Economy Mark for London listed companies.
