Dreyfus U.S. Mortgage Fund

Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks to maximize total return, consisting of capital appreciation and current income. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in mortgage-related securities. These mortgage-related securities may include certificates issued, and guaranteed as to timely payment of principal and interest, by the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA); securities issued by government-related organizations such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities issued by governmental agencies or private entities; and collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs). The fund will invest at least 65% of its net assets in Ginnie Maes. The fund can invest in privately issued mortgage-backed securities with a "BBB" or higher credit quality, but currently intends to invest in only those securities with an "A" or higher credit quality.

The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Yield, share price and investment return fluctuate and an investor’s shares may be worth more or less than original cost upon redemption.

The Bloomberg Barclays GNMA Index tracks agency mortgage-backed pass-through securities guaranteed by Ginnie Mae (GNMA). The index is constructed by grouping individual TBA-deliverable MBS pools into aggregates or generics based on program, coupon and vintage. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

The total return performance figures presented for Class I shares of the fund represent the performance of the fund's Class Z for periods prior to August 31, 2016, 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.

        Main Risks

        Bonds are subject to interest rate, credit, liquidity, call and market risks, to varying degrees. Generally, all other factors being equal, bond prices are inversely related to interest-rate changes and rate increases can cause price declines.

        Mortgage securities: Ginnie Maes and other securities backed by the full faith and credit of the United States are guaranteed only as to the timely payment of interest and principal when held to maturity. The market prices for such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate. Privately issued mortgage related securities also are subject to credit risks associated with the underlying mortgage properties. These securities may be more volatile and less liquid than more traditional, government backed debt securities.
