Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have both disclosed new employment in the financial sector.
They announced on their Archewell website that they have joined a sustainable investing firm named Ethic as “impact partners” and investors.
The posts, according to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will allow them to “put their principles into action.”
“When we invest in each other, we transform the world,” the pair said in a statement.
Our choices—of how and where we put our energy—define us as a global community, whether through time investment (as with mentoring), community investment (as with volunteering), or financial investment (for those who have the means to).
“We believe it’s time for more people to have a seat at the table when decisions are made that impact everyone. We want to rethink the nature of investing to help solve the global issues we all face.
“Our impact partnership with Ethic is one of the ways we put our values in action.”
Also, in a joint interview with Harry, Meghan told DealBook: “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?'”
