The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's post-royal résumé just keeps growing.

According to The New York Times, Prince Harry and Meghan are joining Ethic, a five-year-old sustainable investment firm, as "impact partners" and investors. Ethic helps clients put their money toward companies that behave in socially responsible ways. Harry and Meghan are aiming 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," an official press release from the company read. "With their partnership, our shared vision for a world in which all investing is sustainable investing can reach many millions around the globe."

The couple revealed in a new interview with the Times that they were introduced to the company through friends. The two also detailed their decision to join Ethic, explaining how they want to demystify the process behind sustainable investing.

"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. "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."

The Sussexes are hoping that their new involvement with Ethic will encourage a younger generation to be "more deliberate in their choices and conscious of investing in sustainable companies."

"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 during the conversation.

The Sussexes partnership with Ethic comes after the couple announced a number of new business ventures since stepping away from their senior working royal duties last year. As well as entering the world of finance, the couple has also landed huge deals with Netflix and Spotify, as well as Harry releasing a personal memoir next autumn.
