S-Notes and the Risk/Return Continuum

Assess Investor's Risk/Return Profile...

S-Notes may be structured to fit within an individual investor's risk/return profile across a wide range of asset classes.

S-Notes are available along the risk/return continuum' from the conservative investor concerned about principal protection to the risk tolerant investor seeking enhanced returns through a non-principal protected investment.

Financial advisors can select products from the S-Notes Family to fit within an individual investor's risk/return profile.

...and determine Investor's Asset Allocation Priorities

After determining their individual asset allocation profile, investors and their financial advisors may use S-Notes to achieve the following:

Chart the Course: Evaluate which S-Notes products fit into an investor's overall portfolio

Navigate the Waters: Track the performance of S-Notes throughout their term

S-Notes may be linked to a wide array of asset classes to complement traditional investments. Within an overall portfolio, investors and their financial advisors can determine how S-Notes may be used to achieve investors’ investment objectives by asking the following:

  • In what asset classes is the investor under- or over-allocated?
  • Within each specific asset class, does the investor want principal protection or the possibility of an enhanced return?
  • Does the investor require greater current income or is the investor willing to defer income in exchange for additional potential appreciation?
