How the Callable Deposit plan works
This is a 7 year 2 week Deposit Plan based on the performance of the FTSE™ 100 Index. The Deposit Plan is constructed to offer a potential return of 7% per annum to the redemption date if the Deposit Taker calls the investment early (please refer to the ‘Callable Feature’ below), or 200% participation in any growth of the FTSE™ 100 Index at maturity.
If the Deposit Plan is not called early, at maturity, the investor receives a return of 200% of any positive growth in the FTSE™ 100 Index. For example, at maturity, if the FTSE™ 100 Index had risen 10% from the Initial Index Level, the investor will receive 100% of their investment back plus a 20% growth payment (10% X 200%).
The opportunity for full capital protection and enhanced growth is the key aim of this investment. The investment is linked to one of the best-known indices in the world (see page 5 of the brochure for full details) and investors will benefit from geared growth in the Index unless, the Deposit Taker, Goldman Sachs International Bank (GSIB) “calls” the deposit early, in which case investors will be paid a very competitive fixed rate of return – considerably better than current cash rates. The enhanced participation is designed to more than make up for the loss of dividends a direct investor into the Index would benefit from, and although the returns are effectively capped, because the deposit is very unlikely to deliver more than the 7% per annum coupon rate, the cap is at an attractive level relative to current interest rates.
The initial investment, minus any initial Adviser Fee, will be returned in full on the Maturity Payment Date, or if GSIB calls the Deposit Plan early,regardless of the performance of the Index, as detailed in the Key Observations table on page 4 of the brochure.
The Callable Feature
On each quarterly Observation Date, from the second anniversary onwards, the Deposit Taker has the option to ‘call’ the Deposit Plan at their discretion. This means the Deposit Plan will be redeemed at that point and investors will receive their Initial Capital into the Deposit Plan, together with the fixed rate of return detailed above. For example, if the Deposit Taker called the Deposit Plan on the second anniversary, the investor would receive 100% of their Initial Capital plus a 14% return.
The callable feature provides GSIB with the ability to redeem the Deposit Plan early on any Callable Observation Date, details of which can be found on page 2 of the brochure under ‘Product Information’.
The main reason this may happen is because GSIB believes the enhanced growth participation that could be paid out at maturity, may be higher than the coupons that have accumulated so far. It works in a very similar way to having a cap on the maximum pay-out.
For example, if after 4 years the Index has grown by 25% and seems set to continue growing, the Deposit Taker may feel that they will be better off redeeming the Deposit Plan and paying 4 years of the fixed annual return, rather than potentially paying the Index related return once the Deposit Plan matures.
Although this feature allows the Deposit Taker to avoid paying very high returns, the fixed annual return is set at a rate that is attractive, particularly when combined with the capital protection feature.

The product provides the potential for capital growth and does not pay interest. What you will receive at the end of the term of the product is not certain and will depend on the performance of FTSE 100 Index (the underlying asset). The term of the product will end no later than March 1, 2027. However, we have the right to terminate the product early. The product is not listed on an exchange.
Call feature: We have the right to terminate the product early on each call payment date by giving notice on or before each call date shown on the key information document. In this case you will receive the call payment multiplied by the deposit amount shown on the table in the key information document for each note that you hold.
Repayment at maturity: This section applies only if we do not terminate the product early as described above. On March 1, 2027, you will receive the deposit amount multiplied by the sum of (A) 100% and (B) 200% further multiplied by the underlying asset performance. However, if this is less than the deposit amount, you will receive the deposit amount.
The underlying asset performance is calculated by dividing the closing price of the underlying asset on February 22, 2027 by the initial reference price of the underlying asset and subtracting 100%.
The deposit amount is, at any time, the amount standing to the credit of your deposit account at such time, and excludes any amount already withdrawn or transferred.
The initial reference price of the underlying asset is the closing price on February 20, 2020.
The product terms also provide that if certain exceptional events occur (1) adjustments may be made to the product and/or (2) the product issuer may terminate the product early. These events are specified in the product terms and principally relate to the underlying asset, the product and the product manufacturer. The return (if any) you receive on such early termination is likely to be different from the scenarios described above.
