An accomplished investment executive, David Simon currently serves as the CEO and CIO of Twin Capital Management in New York City. In his work with Twin Capital, David Simon draws on extensive experience in the finance industry as well as a law degree from the University of Miami School of Law.
Since officially opening its doors in 1928, the University of Miami School of Law has trained generations of future leaders in the legal, political, and corporate worlds.

The University of Miami environmental law program made headlines recently when its students helped expose illegal toxic dumping on Florida’s west coast. When a local reporter raised concerns about illegal dumping of lime sludge by the City of Fort Myers in the African-American community of Dunbar, students from the University of Miami environmental law clinic jumped on the case. They traveled to the community to meet with local residents and help them form a legal plan of action.
After hearing about the community’s concerns, the law students conducted extensive research and provided fact-finding services in concert with local attorneys who volunteered to take the case. Partly as a result of the students’ efforts, the attorneys filed a class-action lawsuit in the spring of 2018 against the City of Fort Myers that seeks damages for violating anti-dumping laws and the creation of a health care program to monitor residents for ill effects potentially caused by the toxic waste.
