We have been made aware that there are external parties falsely claiming to carry out financial services on behalf of Goldman Sachs (including Goldman Sachs Asset Management International and Goldman Sachs International) in order to market fake investment products and to solicit monetary payments. These external parties may pose as Goldman Sachs through the use of fraudulent communications via email, instant messaging or phone, as well as through the use of fake brochures and other documents containing Goldman Sachs branding and logos.
The Financial Conduct Authority of UK has issued warnings about these fraudulent activities which can be found here and here.
It is important to know that any communication you receive from Goldman Sachs would only come from an @gs.com e-mail address and/or be found on the goldmansachs.com website. Further information regarding how you can protect yourself from fraudulent activity online and how you can contact us about this can be found on the Goldman Sachs Security page, available here.

Over the next decade we expect technology to have a bigger influence on the global economy that it did over the last one. We look beyond today’s mega-cap tech giants to find the tech leaders of tomorrow.
The world is on the cusp of a revolution in sustainability that we think will have the scale of the industrial revolution and the speed of the digital one.
New technology has cut healthcare costs and improved patient outcomes. We focus on the growth potential of advances in genomics, precision medicine, digital health care and robotic surgery.
Millennials are the world’s largest and wealthiest generation, and catering to their spending patterns and preferences is key for global companies.
With expectations of lower returns across asset classes, we believe investors will need more actively managed equities to meet their total return targets in the years ahead. In this changing macro environment, where inflation is likely to lead to rising interest rates, equity investors will need access to secular growth megatrends while navigating inflation.
In this edition of Tech Bytes, the Fundamental Equity Technology Team responds to a number of questions that are top of mind for clients including the benefits and drawbacks of consumption-based pricing at Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies, the global 5G rollout, the rising popularity of “buy now, pay later” software solutions and the growing importance of payment functionality at the point-of-sale.Read More
Grow Your Practice with Megatrends and Thematic Equity Investing
We believe Millennials are reshaping markets and have the potential to impact businesses across sectors and geographies. Millennials are driving a series of trends that will shape tomorrow’s investment opportunities.
Incorporating dedicated thematic exposure into a strategic asset allocation framework can better “future-proof” investor portfolios.
The pandemic has transformed many aspects of our daily lives. As long-term investors we are focused on distinguishing themes that reflect a momentary advance from those that are fit for the future.
Our actively-managed thematic funds are based on four megatrends that we believe will increasingly drive economic growth in a low-growth world: technological advances, environmental sustainability, changing consumer habits and the future of health care.
The companies aligned with these trends are disrupting the status quo. Yet many traditional equity strategies are underexposed to them and the growth potential they offer. Our thematic funds focus on innovation by investing in the disruptors.
These trends are specific enough to track but broad enough to afford us discretion about what we want to own. This lets our investors carefully evaluate each company’s competitive advantage and the quality of its management team while monitoring stock valuations. Our staff of 80 is spread across six global regions, giving us insight into the way these trends are affecting different markets.

Assets Under Supervision (AUS) includes assets under management and other client assets for which Goldman Sachs does not have full discretion.
Market risk - the value of assets in the Portfolio is typically dictated by a number of factors, including the confidence levels of the market in which they are traded.
contingent Convertible ("CoCo") Bond Risk - investment in this particular type of bond may result in material losses to the Portfolio based on certain trigger events. The existence of these trigger events creates a different type of risk from traditional bonds and may more likely result in a partial or total loss of value or alternatively they may be converted into shares of the issuing company which may also have suffered a loss in value.
Operational risk - material losses to the Portfolio may arise as a result of human error, system and/or process failures, inadequate procedures or controls.
Liquidity risk - the Portfolio may not always find another party willing to purchase an asset that the Portfolio wants to sell which could impact the Portfolio's ability to meet redemption requests on demand.
Exchange rate risk - changes in exchange rates may reduce or increase the returns an investor might expect to receive independent of the performance of such assets. If applicable, investment techniques used to attempt to reduce the risk of currency movements (hedging), may not be effective. Hedging also involves additional risks associated with derivatives.
