Product review: A Goldman Sachs long player

Goldman Sachs is offering US investors a long play on the S&P 500 as well as some regular coupon income. The annual coupon and long product term provide a considerable buffer before capital is lost. Returns are uncapped, but the eight-year and seven-month term means investors must be comfortable with the counterparty

This product is linked to the S&P 500, the most popular equity index underlying for structured products in the US. It is typically chosen for growth products as opposed to income structures, which are mainly reserved for single stocks, such as reverse convertibles or products linked to interest rates. This product stands out from the vast majority of products on the US market as it combines both income and growth and has a maturity of more than eight years, far longer than most products.
