BNY Mellon Japan Womenomics Fund

Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks long-term capital growth. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of companies listed or principally traded on a recognized stock exchange in Japan that, in the view of the fund's sub-adviser, benefit from the "Womenomics" initiative in Japan. This initiative seeks to enhance economic growth through the general economic empowerment of women and includes efforts to ease barriers to female employment outside the home, promote women to leadership positions, and close the gender pay gap. The fund invests principally in common stocks, and may invest in the stocks of companies with any market capitalization.

        Main Risks

        Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks, to varying degrees.
        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.
        The fund's performance will be influenced by political, social and economic factors affecting Japan.
        As a result, the fund's performance could be more volatile than that of more geographically diversified mutual funds. The sub-adviser's investment approach may cause the fund to perform differently than mutual funds that invest in equity securities of Japanese companies, but that do not take into consideration the initiative in Japan to promote the general economic empowerment of women when selecting stocks for investment.
        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.
