Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Getting Into Investment Banking

The Sussexes' plan to become financially independent seems to be going swimmingly.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have racked up impressive partnerships left and right since their exit from official royal life, and they now have a new job — in the finance world.

The New York Times reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have joined Ethic, "a fintech asset manager in the fast-growing environmental, social and governance space." The Times notes that the couple will work as "impact partners" and investors at the company in an effort to help democratize investing and encourage young people to invest in sustainable companies.

"From the world I come from, you don't talk about investing, right?" Meghan said during a joint interview with Harry. "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 said, adding that they were introduced to Ethic by friends.

"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.

In their announcement that they would be stepping back as official members of the royal family, the couple said they'd planned to become financially independent, a plan that seems to have worked out well for them. Since their exit, they've pulled in Netflix deals, launched a Spotify podcast, and have each written books in addition to launching their Archewell nonprofit organization.
