Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned at least $82 million a year ago from investments and business concerns outside of their jobs as unpaid senior advisers to the president, according to financial disclosures released by the White House.

The White House released the financial disclosures for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Monday as President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in a highly anticipated summit in Singapore.

She also made $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. and more than $2 million from severance from the Trump Corp. previous year.

Also released Monday were the disclosures covering Chief of Staff John Kelly, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and Nick Ayers, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, The Wall Street Journal reports.

A spokesman for Kushner's and Ivanka Trump's ethics counsel issued a statement on the financial disclosures, saying the couple followed their ethical obligations, but the forms don't allow them to properly describe their net worth.

Trump Kim summit: Face-to-face
The North Korea leader said through a translator that the document "heralds a new start, leaving the past behind". Trump said that he and Kim would be meeting again, though he offered no timeline for when that might happen.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for the couple's ethics lawyer Abbe Lowell, said Trump and Kushner are abiding by government ethics rules.

Kushner declared income from dozens of companies linked to his family's real estate company.

Ivanka's hotel income of $3.9 million is up from last spring when she reported about $2.4 million in profits for the Washington property that has become a staple for those trying to curry favor with the Trump Administration since it opened in September 2016. He reported more than $US5 million in capital gains from the sale of a shopping mall in the Bronx, New York. Mr Kushner reported more than $5m in income from a New Jersey apartment complex.

A series of interim financial reports previous year showed that Kushner had increased lines of credit with Bank of America, New York Community Bank, and Signature Bank, each from at least $1 million to $5 million. But even as a passive investor, he retains many lucrative investments, which ethics critics have warned could raise conflicts of interest.
