Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Become 'Impact Partners' in U.S. Ethical Investment Firm

“From the world I come from, you don’t talk about investing, right?” Meghan told the outlet. “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?’” she continued, adding that they were introduced to Ethic by friends.

The pair went on to say that their hope is to democratize investing and make it more accessible for younger people.

“You already have the younger generation voting with their dollars and their pounds, you know, all over the world when it comes to brands they select and choose from,” Harry said.

Ethic, which was founded in 2015, screens companies and sectors based on social responsibility criteria, factoring in racial justice, climate and labor issues.

Meghan and Harry were recently spotted together in NYC, where they made a visit to a school in Harlem to read Meghan’s new children’s book! Check out the pics.
