BNY Mellon Tax Managed Growth Fund

Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation consistent with minimizing realized capital gains. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in common stocks and employs a tax-managed strategy. The fund focuses on 'blue-chip' companies with market capitalizations exceeding $5 billion at the time of purchase, including multinational companies.

The fund employs a 'buy-and-hold' investment strategy, which generally has resulted in an annual portfolio turnover of below 15%.

Morningstar Rating™ as of July 31, 2019 for the Class I class shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Large Blend category. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 3 Stars (1207 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 4 Stars (1207 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 3 Stars (1074 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 2 Stars (820 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. ©2018 Morningstar, Inc.

The total return performance figures presented for Class I shares of the fund represent the performance of the fund's Class A for periods prior to May 14, 2004, the inception date for Class I shares, and the performance of Class I, respectively, from that inception date. Performance reflects the applicable class' distribution/servicing fees since the inception date. Had these fees and expenses been reflected for periods prior, performance would have been different. Investors should consider, when deciding whether to purchase a particular class of shares, the investment amount, anticipated holding period and other relevant factors.

        LIPPER CLASSIFICATION Large-Cap Core Funds


        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.

        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.
