Structured Notes are hybrid securities that are issued as debt, but whose outcomes are tied to the performance of an underlying stock.
Structured notes can be growth and/or income focused. Each individual income structured note pays a quarterly coupon, while providing downside protection.
An investment in a structured note portfolio is illiquid. The portfolios have a target initial maturity of 2 years with one 12-month extension option (to account for any reinvested capital during the investment period, which lasts for the first 12 months).
Each structured note purchased in the portfolio will follow a transparent process that requires each underlying stock and note to meet certain criteria. The goal of this process is to ensure that the underlying stocks have fundamental and technical characteristics at the time of selection that are expected to minimize the likelihood of any significant price decline. In addition, each structured note will be chosen to provide a certain minimum amount of downside protection and from a select list of major banks. Please review the Private Placement Memorandum on each Structured Notes Portfolio offering page to learn more.
Diversified, tech, ESG and consumer focused structured note portfolios are offered on Yieldstreet.
A 1.25% annual management fee is charged. Initial coupon payments will be applied to the $150 annual fund expense.
Usually funded by reallocating capital from the equity portion of a portfolio, the inclusion of structured notes can improve a portfolio’s overall risk/return profile as the notes can help to protect against losses while simultaneously providing a regular source of income for investors.
It is expected that each portfolio will contain between 3-10 underlying notes.
Should the value of an underlying stock that dictates the performance of its respective underlying structured note fall below its downside protection value then investors will experience principal loss. The amount of principal lost will be determined by how far the value of the stock has fallen from the day that the structured note was purchased.
Issued as a debt instrument, with coupons that are tied to the performance of an underlying security, typically a single stock or basket of stocks.
Structured notes pay a set yield on a predetermined schedule, while providing a level of downside protection, subject to certain performance criteria being met.
