The Fund pays transaction costs when it buys and sells securities or instruments (i.e., turns
over its portfolio). A high rate of portfolio turnover may result in increased transaction costs, including brokerage commissions, which must be borne by the Fund and
2 SUMMARY PROSPECTUS GOLDMAN SACHS MLP ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE FUND
its shareholders. High portfolio turnover may result in the Funds recognition of gains (losses) that will
increase (decrease) the Funds tax liability and thereby impact the amount of the Funds after-tax distributions. In addition, high portfolio turnover may increase the Funds current and
accumulated earnings and profits, resulting in a greater portion of the Funds distributions being treated as taxable dividends for federal income tax purposes. These costs are not reflected in the annual fund operating expenses or in the
expense example above, but are reflected in the Funds performance. The Funds portfolio turnover rate for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2019 was 51% of the average value of its portfolio.
The Fund invests, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment
purposes (measured at the time of purchase) (Net Assets) in U.S. and non-U.S. equity or fixed income securities issued by energy infrastructure companies, including master limited partnerships
(MLPs) and C corporations (C-Corps). The Funds investments in MLPs will consist of at least 25% of the Funds total assets as measured at the time of purchase.
The Fund intends to concentrate its investments in the energy sector.
For purposes of the Funds 80% policy discussed above, the Funds
investments in energy infrastructure companies include U.S. and non-U.S. issuers that: (i) are classified by a third party as operating within the oil and gas storage and transportation sub-industries; (ii) are part of the Funds stated benchmark; or (iii) have at least 50% of their assets, income, sales or profits committed to, or derived from, traditional or alternative midstream
(energy infrastructure) businesses, which include businesses that are engaged in the treatment, gathering, compression, processing, transportation, transmission, fractionation, storage, terminalling, wholesale marketing, liquefaction/regasification
of natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil, refined products or other energy sources as well as businesses engaged in owning, storing and transporting alternative energy sources, such as renewables (wind, solar, hydrogen, geothermal, biomass)
and alternative fuels (ethanol, hydrogen, biodiesel).
The Funds MLP investments may include MLPs structured as limited partnerships
(LPs) or limited liability companies (LLCs); MLPs that are taxed as C-Corps; institutional units (I-Units) issued by MLP affiliates;
private investments in public equities (PIPEs) issued by MLPs; and other U.S. and non-U.S. equity and fixed income securities and derivative instruments, including pooled investment vehicles and
exchange-traded notes (ETNs), that provide exposure to MLPs.
The Fund may also invest up to 20% of its Net Assets in non-energy infrastructure investments, including equity and fixed income securities of U.S. and non-U.S. companies. Such investments may include issuers in the upstream and
downstream sectors of the energy value chain. Upstream energy companies are primarily engaged in the exploration, recovery, development and production of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. Downstream energy companies are primarily
engaged in the refining and retail distribution of natural gas liquids and crude oil.
The Funds investments may be of any credit quality, duration
or capitalization size. The Fund may also invest in derivatives, including options, futures, forwards, swaps, options on swaps, structured securities and other derivative instruments. While the Fund may invest in derivatives for hedging purposes,
the Fund generally does not intend to hedge its exposures. The Funds investments in derivatives, pooled investment vehicles, and other investments are counted towards the Funds 80% policy to the extent they have economic characteristics
similar to the investments included within that policy. The Fund may also invest in privately held companies and companies that only recently began to trade publicly. The Fund may invest in stock, warrants and other securities of special purpose
acquisition companies (SPACs).
The Fund is treated as a regular corporation, or C corporation, for U.S. federal income tax
purposes. Accordingly, unlike traditional open-end mutual funds, the Fund is subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income at the rates applicable to corporations (at a rate of 21%) as well as state
and local income taxes.
THE FUND IS NON-DIVERSIFIED UNDER THE INVESTMENT COMPANY ACT OF 1940, AS AMENDED
(INVESTMENT COMPANY ACT), AND MAY INVEST A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF ITS ASSETS IN FEWER ISSUERS THAN DIVERSIFIED MUTUAL FUNDS.
benchmark index is the Alerian MLP Index (Total Return, Unhedged, USD). The Alerian MLP Index (Total Return, Unhedged, USD) is the leading gauge of energy infrastructure MLPs and is a capped, float-adjusted,
capitalization-weighted index, whose constituents earn the majority of their cash flow from midstream activities involving energy commodities.
|PRINCIPAL RISKS OF THE FUND|
Loss of money is a risk of investing in the Fund. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not
insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any government agency. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment
objective. Investments in the Fund involve substantial risks which prospective investors should consider carefully before investing. The Funds principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of fixed income securities or instruments held by the Fund (which may have
low credit ratings) may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. The credit quality of the Funds portfolio securities or instruments may meet the Funds credit quality requirements
at the time of purchase but then deteriorate thereafter, and such a deterioration can occur rapidly. In certain instances, the downgrading or default of a single holding or guarantor of the Funds holding may impair the Funds liquidity
and have the potential to cause significant deterioration in NAV. These risks are more pronounced in connection with the Funds investments in non-investment grade fixed income securities.
3 SUMMARY PROSPECTUS GOLDMAN SACHS MLP ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE FUND
Derivatives Risk. The Funds use of futures, swaps, options on swaps and other derivative
instruments may result in losses. These instruments, which may pose risks in addition to and greater than those associated with investing directly in securities, currencies or other instruments, may be illiquid or less liquid, volatile, difficult to
price and leveraged so that small changes in the value of the underlying instruments may produce disproportionate losses to the Fund. Certain derivatives are also subject to counterparty risk, which is the risk that the other party in the
transaction will not fulfill its contractual obligation. The use of derivatives is a highly specialized activity that involves investment techniques and risks different from those associated with investments in more traditional securities and
Dividend-Paying Investments Risk. The Funds investments in dividend-paying securities could cause the Fund to
underperform other funds. Securities that pay dividends, as a group, can fall out of favor with the market, causing such securities to underperform securities that do not pay dividends. Depending upon market conditions and political and legislative
responses to such conditions, dividend-paying securities that meet the Funds investment criteria may not be widely available and/or may be highly concentrated in only a few market sectors. In addition, issuers that have paid regular dividends
or distributions to shareholders may not continue to do so at the same level or at all in the future. This may limit the ability of the Fund to produce current income.
Energy Sector Risk. The Fund concentrates its investments in the energy sector, and will therefore be susceptible to adverse economic, business,
social, political, environmental, regulatory or other developments affecting that sector. The energy sector has historically experienced substantial price volatility. MLPs, energy infrastructure companies and other companies operating in the energy
sector are subject to specific risks, including, among others: fluctuations in commodity prices and/or interest rates; increased governmental or environmental regulation; reduced availability of natural gas or other commodities for transporting,
processing, storing or delivering; declines in domestic or foreign production; slowdowns in new construction; extreme weather or other natural disasters; and threats of attack by terrorists on energy assets. Energy companies can be significantly
affected by the supply of, and demand for, particular energy products (such as oil and natural gas), which may result in overproduction or underproduction. Additionally, changes in the regulatory environment for energy companies may adversely impact
their profitability. Over time, depletion of natural gas reserves and other energy reserves may also affect the profitability of energy companies.
periods of heightened volatility, energy producers that are burdened with debt may seek bankruptcy relief. Bankruptcy laws may permit the revocation or renegotiation of contracts between energy producers and MLPs/energy infrastructure companies,
which could have a dramatic impact on the ability of MLPs/energy infrastructure companies to pay distributions to its investors, including the Fund, which in turn could impact the ability of the Fund to pay dividends and dramatically impact the
value of the Funds investments.
Foreign Risk. Foreign securities may be subject to risk of loss because of more or less foreign
government regulation, less public information and less economic, political and social stability in the countries in which the Fund invests. The imposition of exchange controls, sanctions, confiscations, trade restrictions (including tariffs) and
other government restrictions by the United States and other governments, or from problems in share registration, settlement or custody, may also result in losses. Foreign risk also involves the risk of negative foreign currency rate fluctuations,
which may cause the value of securities denominated in such foreign currency (or other instruments through which the Fund has exposure to foreign currencies) to decline in value. Currency exchange rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods
Infrastructure Company Risk. Infrastructure companies are susceptible to various factors that may negatively impact their
businesses or operations, including costs associated with compliance with and changes in environmental, governmental and other regulations, rising interest costs in connection with capital construction and improvement programs, government budgetary
constraints that impact publicly funded projects, the effects of general economic conditions throughout the world, surplus capacity and depletion concerns, increased competition from other providers of services, uncertainties regarding the
availability of fuel and other natural resources at reasonable prices, the effects of energy conservation policies, unfavorable tax laws or accounting policies and high leverage. Infrastructure companies will also be affected by innovations in
technology that could render the way in which a company delivers a product or service obsolete and natural or man-made disasters.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, fixed income securities or instruments held by the Fund (which may include inflation protected
securities) will generally decline in value. Long-term fixed income securities or instruments will normally have more price volatility because of this risk than short-term fixed income securities or instruments. A wide variety of market factors can
cause interest rates to rise, including central bank monetary policy, rising inflation and changes in general economic conditions. The risks associated with changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets and the Funds
investments. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of fixed income securities and instruments held by the Fund.
Style Risk. Different investment styles (e.g., growth, value or quantitative) tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions as well as investor sentiment. The Fund
may outperform or underperform other funds that invest in similar asset classes but employ different investment styles. The Fund intends to employ a blend of growth and value investment styles depending on market conditions, either of which may fall
out of favor from time to time. Growth stocks may be more volatile than other stocks because they are more sensitive to investor perceptions of the issuing companys growth of earnings potential. Growth companies are often expected by investors
to increase their earnings at a certain rate. When these expectations are not met, investors can punish the stocks inordinately even if earnings showed an absolute increase.
4 SUMMARY PROSPECTUS GOLDMAN SACHS MLP ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE FUND
Also, since growth companies usually invest a high portion of earnings in their business, growth stocks may lack
the dividends of some value stocks that can cushion stock prices in a falling market. Growth oriented funds will typically underperform when value investing is in favor. Value stocks are those that are undervalued in comparison to their peers due to
adverse business developments or other factors.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain
large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which
may negatively impact the Funds NAV and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the Funds performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash
position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to the Fund and shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large
redemption could result in the Funds current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the Funds expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse
investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, an
unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. To meet redemption requests, the Fund may be forced to sell securities at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions. Redemptions by large shareholders may have a negative
impact on a Funds liquidity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the
prospects of individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, acts of terrorism, social
unrest, natural disasters, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Master Limited Partnership Risk. Investments in securities of an MLP involve risks that differ from investments in common stock, including risks
related to limited control and limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP. Certain MLP securities may trade in lower volumes due to their smaller capitalizations, and may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements and lower market
liquidity. MLPs are generally considered interest-rate sensitive investments that generally rely on capital markets to finance capital expenditures and growth opportunities. During periods of interest rate volatility, limited capital markets access
and/or low commodities pricing, these investments may not provide attractive returns.
Mid-Cap and Small-Cap Risk. Investments in mid-capitalization and small-capitalization companies involve greater risks than those associated with larger, more established
These securities may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements and may lack sufficient market liquidity, and these issuers often
face greater business risks.
Non-Diversification Risk. The Fund is
non-diversified, meaning that it is permitted to invest a larger percentage of its assets in fewer issuers than diversified mutual funds. Thus, the Fund may be more susceptible to adverse developments
affecting any single issuer held in its portfolio, and may be more susceptible to greater losses because of these developments.
Companies Risk. By investing in other investment companies (including ETFs) indirectly through the Fund, investors will incur a proportionate share of the expenses of the other investment companies held by the Fund (including operating costs
and investment management fees) in addition to the fees regularly borne by the Fund. In addition, the Fund will be affected by the investment policies, practices and performance of such investment companies in direct proportion to the amount of
assets the Fund invests therein.
Private Investment in Public Equities Risk. The Fund may make PIPE transactions. PIPE transactions
typically involve the purchase of securities directly from a publicly traded company or its affiliates in a private placement transaction, typically at a discount to the market price of the companys common stock. In a PIPE transaction, the
Fund may bear the price risk from the time of pricing until the time of closing. Equity issued in this manner is often subject to transfer restrictions and is therefore less liquid than equity issued through a registered public offering. For
example, the Fund may be subject to lock-up agreements that prohibit transfers for a fixed period of time. In addition, because the sale of the securities in a PIPE transaction is not registered under the
Securities Act, the securities are restricted and cannot be immediately resold into the public markets. The Fund may enter into a registration rights agreement with the issuer pursuant to which the issuer commits to file a resale
registration statement allowing the Fund to publicly resell its securities. However, the ability of the Fund to freely transfer the shares is conditioned upon, among other things, the SECs preparedness to declare the resale registration
statement effective and the issuers right to suspend the Funds use of the resale registration statement if the issuer is pursuing a transaction or some other material non-public event is occurring.
Accordingly, PIPE securities may be subject to risks associated with illiquid investments.
Special Purpose Acquisition Companies Risk. The
Fund may invest in stock, warrants and other securities of SPACs. SPACs are in essence blank check companies without operating history or ongoing business other than seeking acquisitions. The value of a SPACs securities is particularly
dependent on the ability of its management to identify and complete a profitable acquisition. There is no guarantee that the SPACs in which the Fund invests will complete an acquisition or that any acquisitions completed by the SPACs in which the
Fund invests will be profitable. The values of investments in SPACs may be highly volatile and these investments may also have little or no liquidity.
Stock Risk. Stock prices have historically risen and fallen in periodic cycles. U.S. and foreign stock markets have experienced periods of
substantial price volatility in the past and may do so again in the future.
5 SUMMARY PROSPECTUS GOLDMAN SACHS MLP ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE FUND
Strategy Risk. The Funds strategy of investing primarily in MLPs, resulting in its being
taxed as a corporation, or a C corporation, rather than as a regulated investment company for U.S. federal income tax purposes, is a relatively new investment strategy for funds. This strategy involves complicated accounting, tax and
valuation issues. Volatility in the NAV may be experienced because of the use of estimates at various times during a given year that may result in unexpected and potentially significant consequences for the Fund and its shareholders.
Tax Risk. Tax risks associated with investments in the Fund include but are not limited to the following:
MLP Tax Risk. MLPs are generally treated as partnerships for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Partnerships do not pay U.S. federal income
tax at the partnership level. Rather, each partner is allocated a share of the partnerships income, gains, losses, deductions and expenses. A change in current tax law or a change in the underlying business mix of a given MLP could result in
an MLP being treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which would result in the MLP being required to pay U.S. federal income tax (as well as state and local income taxes) on its taxable income. This would have the effect of
reducing the amount of cash available for distribution by the MLP and could result in a reduction in the value of the Funds investment in the MLP and lower income to the Fund. To the extent a distribution received by the Fund from an MLP is
treated as a return of capital, the Funds adjusted tax basis in the interests of the MLP may be reduced, which will result in an increase in an amount of income or gain (or decrease in the amount of loss) that will be recognized by the Fund
for tax purposes upon the sale of any such interests or upon subsequent distributions in respect of such interests. Furthermore, any return of capital distribution received from the MLP may require the Fund to restate the character of its
distributions and amend any shareholder tax reporting previously issued. Moreover, a change in current tax law, or a change in the underlying business mix of a given MLP, could result in an MLP investment being treated as a corporation for U.S.
federal income tax purposes, which could result in a reduction of the value of the Funds investment in the MLP and lower income to the Fund.
Investment in MLP C Corporations. As discussed above, the Fund may invest in MLPs taxed as C corporations. Such MLPs are obligated to pay federal income
tax on their taxable income at the corporate tax rate and the amount of cash available for distribution by such MLPs would generally be reduced by any such tax. Additionally, distributions received by the Fund would be taxed under federal income tax
laws applicable to corporate dividends (as dividend income, potentially subject to the corporate dividends received deduction, return of capital, or capital gain). Thus, investment in MLPs taxed as C corporations could result in a reduction of the
value of your investment in the Fund and lower income, as compared to investments in MLPs that are classified as partnerships for tax purposes.
Structure Risk. Unlike traditional mutual funds that are structured as regulated investment companies for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Fund will be taxable as a regular corporation, or C corporation, for U.S. federal income
tax purposes. This means the Fund generally will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income at the rates applicable to corporations (at a rate of 21%), and will also be subject to state and local income taxes.
Tax Estimation/NAV Risk. In calculating the Funds daily NAV, the Fund will, among other things, account for its current taxes and
deferred tax liability and/or asset balances. The Fund will accrue a deferred income tax liability balance, at the then effective statutory U.S. federal income tax rate (at a rate of 21%) plus an estimated state and local income tax rate, for its
future tax liability associated with the capital appreciation of its investments and the distributions received by the Fund on interests of MLPs considered to be return of capital and for any net operating gains. Any deferred tax liability balance
will reduce the Funds NAV. The Fund may also accrue a deferred tax asset balance, which reflects an estimate of the Funds future tax benefit associated with net operating losses and unrealized losses. Any deferred tax asset balance will
increase the Funds NAV. To the extent the Fund has a deferred tax asset balance, consideration is given as to whether or not a valuation allowance, which would offset the value of some or all of the deferred tax asset balance, is required. The
Fund will rely to some extent on information provided by MLPs, which may not be provided to the Fund on a timely basis, to estimate current taxes and deferred tax liability and/or asset balances for purposes of financial statement reporting and
determining its NAV. The daily estimate of the Funds current taxes and deferred tax liability and/or asset balances used to calculate the Funds NAV could vary significantly from the Funds actual tax liability or benefit, and, as a
result, the determination of the Funds actual tax liability or benefit may have a material impact on the Funds NAV. From time to time, the Fund may modify its estimates or assumptions regarding its current taxes and deferred tax
liability and/or asset balances as new information becomes available, which modifications in estimates or assumptions may have a material impact on the Funds NAV. Shareholders who redeem their shares at a NAV that is based on estimates of the
Funds current taxes and deferred tax liability and/or asset balances may benefit at the expense of remaining shareholders (or remaining shareholders may benefit at the expense of redeeming shareholders) if the estimates are later revised or
ultimately differ from the Funds actual tax liability and/or asset balances.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Act) reduced the
general statutory U.S. federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21%, limited the use of net operating losses to offset future taxable income, placed limitations on the deductibility of interest expense, repealed the corporate alternative
minimum tax, and made other changes which may have effects on the Fund and on the MLPs in which the Fund invests. The Fund will take into account the impact of such changes in law in determining its current taxes and deferred tax liability and/or

|BUYING AND SELLING FUND SHARES|
The Fund does not impose minimum purchase requirements for initial or subsequent investments in Class P
You may purchase and redeem (sell) Class P Shares of the Fund on any business day through the Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Management
business unit, The Goldman Sachs Trust Company, N.A., The Goldman Sachs Trust Company of Delaware, The Ayco Company, L.P. or with certain intermediaries that are authorized to offer Class P Shares.
The Fund is treated as a regular corporation, or C corporation, for U.S. federal, state and local
income tax purposes. The Fund will make distributions that will be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as (i) first, taxable dividends to the extent of your allocable share of the Funds earnings and profits, (ii) second, non-taxable returns of capital to the extent of your tax basis in your shares of the Fund (for the portion of those distributions that exceed the Funds earnings and profits) and (iii) third, taxable gains
(for the balance of those distributions). Dividend income will be treated as qualified dividends for federal income tax purposes, subject to favorable capital gain tax rates, provided that certain requirements are met. Unlike a regulated
investment company, the Fund will not be able to pass-through the character of its recognized net capital gain by paying capital gain dividends. Although the Fund expects that a significant portion of its distributions will be treated as
nontaxable return of capital and gains, combined, no assurance can be given in this regard. Additionally, a sale of Fund shares is a taxable event for shares held in a taxable account.
|PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES|
If you purchase the Fund through an intermediary that is authorized to offer Class P Shares, the Fund and/or
its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask
your salesperson or visit your intermediarys website for more information.
