The couple resigned from their official monarch duties last year. They complained about constant bullying and racist attitude towards Meghan by people in the Royal family. Since their relocation, Harry and Meghan have been busy investing and making multi-million deals with companies in the corporate world.
Duke And Duchess For Sustainability
According to a report by the New York Times, The Prince and Meghan are joining a sustainable investment firm as investors and instant partners.
Ethic is a five-year-old financial service and technology company dealing with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing. It was founded by former bankers Doug Scott, Jay Lipman, and Johny Mair.
The firm enables clients to invest their money toward socially responsible companies and manages more than $1.3 billion.
Honest And Continued Commitment
In a blog post released on Tuesday, the company revealed the commitment of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in promoting sustainability.
“They’re deeply committed to helping address the defining issues of our time – such as climate, gender equity, health, racial justice, human rights and strengthening democracy – and understand that these issues are inherently interconnected. So much so, in fact that they became investors in Ethic earlier this year and have investment management by Ethic as well,” read part of the blog post.
The power couple is trying to shine a light on how we can all impact the causes that affect our communities, bring transparency into how the corporate world sets the tone and shapes outcomes for everyday families.
“With their partnership, our shared vision for a world in which all investing is sustainable investing can reach many millions around the globe,” read another part of the blog post.
In an interview with the New York Times, Harry and Meghan revealed that friends introduced them to the sustainable company. The royal couple also explained their reason for investing and their wish to exemplify sustainable investment.
Values And Similar Mindset
Meghan told the Times, “My husband has been saying for years, ‘Gosh, don’t you wish there was a place where if your values are aligned like this, you could put your money to the same sort of thing? 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.”
Harry also had something to say, “You already have the younger generation voting for their dollars and their pounds, you know, all over the world when it comes to brands they select and choose from.”
Investing in Ethic is not the only investment the two utterly successful individuals have made in the world of financing ever since their controversial exit from the royal family last year.
Harry and Meghan found Archewell, a non-profit charitable foundation that also operates as a business dealing with media production. Archewell has signed a podcast deal with Spotify and a film deal with Netflix. Harry has also worked as a co-producer for Apple TV+.
