BNY Mellon International Core Equity Fund

Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks long-term growth of capital. To pursue this goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities of companies located in the foreign countries represented in the Morgan Stanley Capital Inter-national Europe, Australasia and Far East (EAFE) Index and Canada. The fund's stock investments may include common stocks, preferred stocks and convertible securities. The fund intends to invest in a broad range of countries. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in securities of issuers located in emerging market countries, but no more than 5% of its assets may be invested in issuers located in any one emerging market country. The fund invests in stocks that appear to be undervalued (as measured by their price/earnings ratios) and that may have value and/or growth characteristics. The portfolio managers employ a bottom-up investment approach, which emphasizes individual stock selection.

Morningstar Rating™ as of August 31, 2020 for the Class Y class shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Foreign Large Blend category. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 2 Stars (643 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 2 Stars (643 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 2 Stars (534 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 MSCI EAFE Index (Europe, Australasia, Far East) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets, excluding the U.S. and Canada. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

The total return performance figures presented for Class Y shares of the fund represent the performance of the fund's Class I for periods prior to June 01, 2015, the inception date for Class Y shares, and the performance of Class Y, 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.

        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 currencyexchange 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.
