Prince Harry needs dough.
Since moving to Los Angeles last year, the Duke of Sussex’s expenses have skyrocketed. But now that he’s stepped down from his royal duties, the Queen has cut off his “allowance.”
To make ends meet, he’s inked some content deals with Netflix, Spotify, and Apple.
But c’mon, this guy is used to wearing fancy knee pants and trotting around on polo ponies. To support his lifestyle, he needs to make the big bucks.
So today, I’ll explain how he’s planning to make a fortune…
And then I’ll show you three easy ways to join him — and even beat him at his own game.
The Next Fortune-Maker?
The way Prince Harry is aiming to make his fortune is with impact investing.
This area is also called ESG, short for Environmental, Social, and Governance.
But whatever you call it, the idea is simple:
Invest in ideas that are good for a community or the environment, and very good for your wallet.
This is a fast-growing sector…
According to a recent report from the Global Impact Investing Network, the global market for impact investments is currently worth $715 billion — up 42% from $502 billion the prior year.
Furthermore, some of the world’s biggest and most successful investors have recently turned their focus here…
$7 Trillion BlackRock Jumps In
As a few examples of this, consider:
- In April 2020, $7 trillion asset manager BlackRock launched a Global Impact fund which focuses on sustainable investing. Blackrock also said it will make environmental sustainability a core goal in its investment decisions.
- Top venture firm Kleiner Perkins recently created a $350 million fund to invest in clean-technology companies.
- Other major players jumping into this area include Bain Capital, TPG, and UBS.
The thing is, when influential investors like these make big moves, the world takes notice.
That’s why this shift could actually reshape how corporate America does business.
And for investors looking to make some big bucks — in other words, everyone from Prince Harry to you — it’s providing a major opportunity…
Harry’s New Partner
Prince Harry still seems to be attached at the hip to his wife Meghan Markle…
But now he’s making room for some additional partners in his life.
In particular, he recently partnered with a five-year-old asset management firm called Ethic that focuses on impact investments. Essentially, the firm invests in companies that have a good track record in environmental, social, and governance issues.
Why is Prince Harry making impact investing such a big part of his future?
Simple: He wants to do good for the world — and make a killing financially.
So, now the $1 million question:
How can you get access to impact investments and position yourself to make a fortune?
Let’s take a look…
Three Potential Impact Investments for You
Thousands of companies today are focused on ESG initiatives.
But Prince Harry decided to partner with a young company, where his involvement could have the biggest impact.
We’d advise you to do the same, so your investment dollars can lead to the biggest returns.
In that vein, here are three young startups seeking investments from investors like you:
Terraformation is creating solutions to the biggest challenges of reforestation — the process of restocking depleted forests and woodlands. Such challenges include seed banking, desalination, and finance. Led by ex-Reddit CEO Yishan Wong, it recently raised $30 million from Sam and Max Altman at Apollo Projects, so you’d be “following” pro investors into this deal.
Prep to Your Door delivers locally sourced plant-based meals in reusable jars. Over the last 12 months, it’s generated more than $1 million in revenue, and is growing at 125% per year.
PittMoss offers next-generation garden soil that’s better for plants, and better for the planet. Made from “up-cycled” materials, PittMoss’s proprietary formula allows for more air, water, and nutrients to be delivered to plants, helping them grow faster and stronger. You’d be following investor and “shark” Mark Cuban into this deal.
A Great Place to Start Your Search
Keep in mind, I’m not recommending that you go out and blindly invest in these companies.
These are still early-stage ventures, so you need to do substantial research before making an investment decision.
But if you’re intrigued about the soaring market for impact investing — and you’re intrigued about investing “alongside” Prince Harry — this is a great place to start your search!
