In this environment, we believe your clients may benefit from investing in companies that we believe are likely to sustain their growth potential. BNYM Mellon Small/Mid Cap Growth SMA and BNY Mellon Small/Mid Cap Growth Fund seek out companies our investment professionals believe are likely to grow over the next several years, rather than two or three quarters.

Leveraging themes to identify opportunities for growth duration has been part of our investment process for over 15 years, and remains a priority during volatile times. Read our white paper, 8 Investment Themes for Global Growth.

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.

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.
