A New Name That Represents A Proud History

A New Name That Represents A Proud History

A new name that represents a proud history

We are pleased to announce that, on or about June 3, 2019, the Dreyfus U.S. Retail business and its long-term mutual funds will be renamed “BNY Mellon” to align with the BNY Mellon Investment Management brand.

Our goal is to make it easier for investors to identify and access our full suite of investment solutions by creating a more consistent global retail brand. The BNY Mellon name reflects our trusted reputation as a leading global asset manager with approximately $1.7 trillion in assets under management.

You’ll see the new logo and branding on your June 30 mutual fund statements, but there’s nothing for you to do.

While our 94 long-term mutual funds will be rebranded BNY Mellon, all of their investment objectives, strategies, portfolio managers and investment subadvisers will remain the same. However, as the Dreyfus brand is well-known and highly regarded in cash management, the 27 Dreyfus-managed money market funds will retain the Dreyfus name.

Please be assured that there will be no changes to your account number or product codes, and all existing Dreyfus-branded checks will be honored. When you contact us to reorder, you will be provided with updated checks that reflect our new branding. If you utilize our online mutual fund account access, you will still maintain the same user ID and password.

A change to help our clients

Our goal is to provide you with investment excellence and a superior experience. The strength and scale of BNY Mellon Investment Management allows us to offer investors creative solutions from our world-class investment managers, combined with the global reach and financial stewardship of BNY Mellon. This brand change will more clearly showcase the entirety of our capabilities that we are able to offer.

Other name changes you can expect to see

As part of the rebrand, the names of our businesses and investment accounts will change in June. But this will not affect the structure or terms of your accounts.
