    BNY Mellon Diversified Emerging Markets Fund

    Why invest in this Fund?

    The fund seeks long-term growth of capital. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies located, organized, or with a majority of assets or business in emerging market countries, including underlying funds that invest in such securities. The fund uses a 'manager of managers' approach by selecting one or more investment managers to serve as subadvisers to the fund. The fund also uses a 'fund of funds' approach by investing in one or more underlying funds.

    Morningstar Rating™ as of December 31, 2022 for the Class I class shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Diversified Emerging Markets category. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 4 Stars (732 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 4 Stars (732 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 3 Stars (650 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 4 Stars (394 funds rated). The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products with at least a 3-year history. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance (not including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees if applicable), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Managed products; including open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds; are considered a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. © Morningstar, Inc.

      Prospectus Fee Table Expense Ratios

      As of  02/01/23 Fee Description Expense Ratio (%)
      Management Fee 0.73%
      Administration Fee 0.07%
      Other Expenses 0.39%
      Acquired Fund Fees & Expenses 0.37%
      Total Expenses 1.56%
      Total Expenses is the total annual operating expense ratio for the fund, before any fee waivers or expense reimbursements. Net Expenses is the total annual operating expense ratio for the fund, after any applicable fee waivers or expense reimbursements. The Total Expenses, or Net Expenses (if including fee waivers or expense reimbursements) is the actual fund expense ratio applicable to investors.
      The fund's investment adviser, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc., has contractually agreed, until February 1, 2024, to waive receipt of its fees and/or assume the direct expenses of the fund so that the direct expenses of none of the fund's classes (excluding Rule 12b-1 fees, shareholder services fees, taxes, interest expense, brokerage commissions, commitment fees on borrowings and extraordinary expenses) exceed 1.30%. On or after February 1, 2024, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. may terminate this expense limitation agreement at any time. Because "acquired fund fees and expenses" are incurred indirectly by the fund as a result of its investment in underlying funds, such fees and expenses are not included in the expense limitation.

          LIPPER CLASSIFICATION


          Lipper Category returns and rankings are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns. Rankings do not reflect sales loads

          Main Risks

          Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks to varying degrees.
          Small and midsized company stocks tend to be more volatile and less liquid than larger company stocks as these companies are less established and have more volatile earnings histories.
          Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities involves special risks, including changes in currency exchange rates, political, economic, and social instability, limited company information, differing auditing and legal standards, and less market liquidity. These risks generally are greater with emerging market countries.
          Recent market risks include pandemic risks related to COVID-19. The effects of COVID-19 have contributed to increased volatility in global markets and will likely affect certain countries, companies, industries and market sectors more dramatically than others. To the extent the fund may overweight its investments in certain countries, companies, industries or market sectors, such positions will increase the fund's exposure to risk of loss from adverse developments affecting those countries, companies, industries or sectors.
