With public market volatility at high levels, the portfolio will seek to mitigate some of the downside risks associated with owning stocks, while also allowing investors to participate in a portion of potential upside swings. ST Growth Note Diversified Portfolio I will initially invest in 3 individual growth structured notes, each referencing different underlying stocks; QUALCOMM Inc (QCOM), Citigroup Inc (C) and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN). Each growth structured note has varying characteristics, including max. upside participation, a downside protection barrier and strike price.

Potential benefits of investing in growth notes

  • Our Growth Notes Portfolios allows participation in potential market upswings whilst simultaneously offering protection in the event of further public market declines.
  • The portfolio uses market volatility to its advantage and can be beneficial to investors who are not sure which way the market pendulum will swing.
  • When owned in conjunction with public equities, the risk adjusted return of portfolios can be improved.

Institutional and ultra-wealthy investors have favored structured notes for their strong risk-adjusted return characteristics, especially during periods of heightened volatility

  • Globally, the structured notes market is approximately $3T in size.
  • Used by institutional and ultra-wealthy investors for decades to generate capital appreciation while helping to mitigate downside risk during periods of heightened volatility.
  • Yieldstreet typically purchases structured notes issued by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Citi, Bank of America, Barclays, Societe Generale, Credit Suisse, HSBC, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), and TD Bank.

Provides investors the opportunity to benefit from upswings in the markets while mitigating downside risk

  • For example, consider an investor invests in a stock of company A and a growth structured note tied to the performance of the underlying stock A.
  • Scenario 1: If the price of stock A has increased by 15% at maturity, investors will receive full principal at maturity plus participate in the full 15% price appreciation
  • Scenario 2: If the price of stock A has increased by 25% at maturity, which is beyond the max. upside participation of 20%, investors will be capped and receive the 20% price appreciation plus full principal.
  • Scenario 3: If the price of stock A has decreased by 20%, the investor will be protected and receive back their principal in full
  • Scenario 4: Only if the price of stock A has decreased by more than 30%, which is the downside protection barrier, will the investor experience principal loss. In this scenario an investor's principal loss would be equivalent to how much the stock's price has fallen since the strike date.
  • For example, if the stock price decreases 35% then the investor would receive 65% of principal back.

See the Private Placement Memorandum which illustrates the outcome if the underlying stock of the structured note falls below the downside protection barrier at maturity.

What are growth structured notes?

How do growth structured notes work?

  • A structured note is a debt security issued by financial institutions. Its returns are linked to the performance of an underlying stock. Structured notes can be income and/or growth focused.
  • For growth structured notes, on the observation date (maturity date), the current price of the underlying stock is measured relative to its strike price.
  • If the current price of the underlying stock on the maturity date is equal to or above its downside protection barrier and its strike price, then the investor will receive their principal back.
  • If the performance on the maturity date is below its downside protection barrier, then the investor will lose principal equivalent to the amount the stock has depreciated from its strike price.
  • If the performance on the maturity date is between the strike price and the max. upside participation then investors will receive full principal at maturity plus the capital gain the underlying stock experienced.
  • If the performance on the maturity date is above the max. upside participation at maturity then investors will receive full principal at maturity but their return will be limited to the max. upside participation.

Please refer to the Private Placement Memorandum for additional definitions and components of structured notes.
