The royal couple "share a lot of values with us, and we suspect, with many of you as well. That's why we're so excited that they're joining us as impact partners," fund manager Ethic said in a Tuesday announcement.
The move pairs the sixth in line to the British throne and the former "Suits" star with a firm that says its mission is to help "wealth advisors demystify the world of sustainable investing and engage in meaningful values-driven conversation with their clients."
Harry and Meghan will serve as "impact partners" and investors.
“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 told The New York Times on Tuesday.
The California-born former actor — who with her husband stepped away from their duties as full-time working members of the royal family last year and moved to the Golden State — said growing up, investments weren't part of the conversation.
“From the world I come from, you don’t talk about investing, right?” Meghan said. “You don’t have the luxury to invest. That sounds so fancy.”
"When we invest in each other we change the world," the two said in a statement posted on their Archewell Foundation website.
"We believe it’s time for more people to have a seat at the table when decisions are made that impact everyone."
