Meghan Markle and Prince Harry vowed to ‘change the world’ as they moved into ‘ethical’ banking.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are putting their money into an investment company called Ethic after their friends introduced them to its founders.
Their latest move came after their deals with Spotify and Netflix.
Meghan and Harry announced their latest tie-up in a statement and said: “When we invest in each other we change the world.”
In an interview with the New York Times, the former actress said: “From the world I come from, you don’t talk about investing, right? You don’t have the luxury to invest. That sounds so fancy.
“My husband has been saying for years: ‘Gosh, don’t you wish there was a place where if your values were aligned like this, you could put your money to that same sort of thing?’”
Meghan, who lives with her royal husband and their two children in a $14 million mansion in Los Angeles, added that they were introduced to Ethic by friends.
Ethic claims to invest in businesses that meet its “social responsibility criteria,” including climate change, racial injustice, and workplace standards such as fair pay and gender equality.
The Sussexes have already signed major deals with Spotify and Netflix after they quit as senior royals.
In March, Harry told Oprah in an explosive interview that he was forced to make multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify after he claimed that his family “literally cut me off financially” after they stepped down from their royal duties in 2020.
Now, the couple have become ‘impact partners’ and investors at sustainable investing company Ethic.
Meghan and Harry’s Archewell website confirmed their business partnership, linking to a New York Times post which featured the headline “Harry and Meghan Get into Finance.”
