Disclosures

There is no guarantee that objectives will be met.

The portfolio risk management process includes an effort to monitor and manage risk, but does not imply low risk.

Economic and market forecasts presented herein reflect a series of assumptions and judgments as of the date of this presentation and are subject to change without notice.  These forecasts do not take into account the specific investment objectives, restrictions, tax and financial situation or other needs of any specific client.  Actual data will vary and may not be reflected here.  These forecasts are subject to high levels of uncertainty that may affect actual performance. Accordingly, these forecasts should be viewed as merely representative of a broad range of possible outcomes.  These forecasts are estimated, based on assumptions, and are subject to significant revision and may change materially as economic and market conditions change. Goldman Sachs has no obligation to provide updates or changes to these forecasts. Case studies and examples are for illustrative purposes only.

Past performance does not guarantee future results, which may vary. The value of investments and the income derived from investments will fluctuate and can go down as well as up. A loss of principal may occur.

Valuation levels for the assets listed in the Account statements and other documents containing prices reflect GSAM’s good faith effort to ascertain fair market levels (including accrued income, if any) for all positions. Third party pricing services generally value fixed income securities assuming orderly transactions of an institutional round lot size, but accounts may hold or transact in such securities in smaller odd lot sizes.  Odd lots may trade at lower prices than institutional round lots. The valuation information is believed by GSAM to be reliable for round lot sizes. The prices are indicative only of the assumed fair value of the positions on the relevant date. These valuation levels may not be realized by the Account upon liquidation. Market conditions and transaction size will affect liquidity and price received upon liquidation. Current exchange rates will be applied in valuing positions in foreign currency.

For portfolio valuation purposes it is the responsibility of the custodian, administrator or such other third party appointed by the client, to obtain accurate and reliable information concerning the valuation of any securities including derivative instruments which are comprised in the portfolio. The information that GSAM provides should not be deemed the official pricing and valuation for the Account. GSAM is not obligated to provide pricing information to satisfy any regulatory, tax or accounting requirements to which the Client may be subject.

Diversification does not protect an investor from market risk and does not ensure a profit.

Views and opinions expressed are for informational purposes only and do not constitute a recommendation by GSAM to buy, sell, or hold any security. Views and opinions are current as of the date of this presentation and may be subject to change, they should not be construed as investment advice.

Offering Documents

This material is provided at your request for informational purposes only and does not constitute a solicitation in any jurisdiction in which such a solicitation is unlawful or to any person to whom it is unlawful. It only contains selected information with regards to the fund and does not constitute an offer to buy shares in the fund. Prior to an investment, prospective investors should carefully read the latest Key Investor Information Document (KIID) as well as the offering documentation, including but not limited to the fund’s prospectus which contains inter alia a comprehensive disclosure of applicable risks. The relevant articles of association, prospectus, supplement, KIID and latest annual/semi-annual report are available free of charge from the fund’s paying and information agent and/or from your financial adviser.

Distribution of Shares

Shares of the fund may not be registered for public distribution in a number of jurisdictions (including but not limited to any Latin American, African or Asian countries). Therefore, the shares of the fund must not be marketed or offered in or to residents of any such jurisdictions unless such marketing or offering is made in compliance with applicable exemptions for the private placement of collective investment schemes and other applicable jurisdictional rules and regulations.

Financial advisers generally suggest a diversified portfolio of investments. The fund described herein does not represent a diversified investment by itself. This material must not be construed as investment or tax advice. Prospective investors should consult their financial and tax adviser before investing in order to determine whether an investment would be suitable for them.

An investor should only invest if he/she has the necessary financial resources to bear a complete loss of this investment.

Swing Pricing

Please note that the fund operates a swing pricing policy. Investors should be aware that from time to time this may result in the fund performing differently compared to the reference benchmark based solely on the effect of swing pricing rather than price developments of underlying instruments.

Capital is at risk.

Some of the information contained herein may have been provided by the manager and Goldman Sachs Asset Management makes no representation as to its accuracy or completeness.

Emerging markets securities may be less liquid and more volatile and are subject to a number of additional risks, including but not limited to currency fluctuations and political instability.

Although certain information has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, we do not guarantee its accuracy, completeness or fairness.  We have relied upon and assumed without independent verification, the accuracy and completeness of all information available from public sources.

Please note that for the purposes of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (“SFDR”), this product is not an Article 8 or 9 product. Please note that this material includes certain information on Goldman Sachs’s sustainability practices and track record at an organizational and investment team level, which may not necessarily be reflected in the portfolio of any product(s) you invest in.

Additional Disclosures for Hong Kong:

The Portfolio invests in Emerging Markets (in specific regions or otherwise) which may involve increased risks and special considerations not typically associated with investment in more developed markets such as liquidity risks, currency risks/control, political and economic uncertainties, legal and taxation risks, settlement risks, custody risk, risks of nationalisation or expropriation of assets, and the likelihood of a high degree of volatility.

The Portfolio's investments are concentrated in high-yield instruments and/or below Investment Grade or unrated securities of comparable credit quality. The value of the Portfolio may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio of investments.

The Portfolio is exposed to risks associated with currency, concentration, credit, counterparty, interest rate, volatility, liquidity, downgrading, high yield instruments and/or below Investment Grade or unrated securities of comparable credit quality, sovereign debt, investments in debt instruments with loss-absorption features, RMB currency and conversion, sustainability risk, Money Market Instruments, valuation, credit rating and credit rating agency.

For Class Other Currency Shares (Gross MDist) (AUD-Hedged), the investment returns are denominated in Australian dollar. US/HK dollar based investors are therefore exposed to fluctuations in the US/HK dollar/Australian dollar exchange rate.
