He has authored numerous investment and sustainability-related publications and been featured in print and broadcast media segments. “David Harris has been the leader of our asset management business and an important part of RAM’s success and evolution,” Fleming said. “He will continue to play an important role at the firm over the years to come as we navigate dynamic markets to meet clients' investment objectives.” Rockefeller has a rich history in sustainable investing, dating back to its first mission-related fund in 1977.
