Domestic Money Market Mutual Funds

We offer more than 20domestic money market mutual funds for asset management account use, with multiple share classes and expense structures, to support asset management account services for your customers.

Ultra Short Income Mutual Fund

The Ultra Short Income Mutual Fund is managed by the investment professionals at BNY Mellon Cash Investment Strategies, a division of Dreyfus. This variable net asset value mutual fund has an investment approach that seeks high current income consistent with the maintenance of liquidity and low volatility of principal.  The fund will invest more than 25% of its assets in securities issued by companies in the financial services industry and repurchase agreements secured by such obligations.

The fund will also invest in a broad range of U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities, including money market instruments and will seek to maintain a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity of 120 days or less.

Private Funds: Domestic and Offshore

Private funds are the sale of securities to a limited number of investors who are Accredited and Qualified Purchasers. Domestic and offshore funds rely on the section 3c-7 exemption. Therefore, these funds are exempt from registration under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. These funds constitute a private offering made in compliance with Regulation D.

Sub-Advisory

Dreyfus’ sub-advisory capabilities are highly customizable and leverage our sophisticated portfolio/credit/risk management, fund administration and compliance infrastructure. Whether you are looking for an advisor to manage your own fund or looking to outsource all your money market operations, Dreyfus has all of the resources and expertise to meet your needs.

Insured Network Deposits® Program

Insured Network Deposits® Program provides financial institutions with access to a multi-bank deposit sweep service providing FDIC insurance on cash balances up to $2.5 million. Interest rates are based on linked brokerage accounts.
(The Insured Network Deposits Program does not involve investment in a money market mutual fund. Money market mutual funds are not FDIC-insured and involve risk of principal loss.)

Offshore money funds are UCITS-compliant and designed for non-U.S. persons who desire professional active management of their liquid assets. 
(Offshore Funds are not available to U.S. Persons (as described in the Prospectus) and may only be offered and sold in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933 by authorized entities.)

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a money market fund carefully before investing. Contact your BNY Mellon Fixed Income Representative to receive a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about a money market fund or mutual fund, and read it carefully before investing.

An investment in any money market is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in a money market fund. Fund yields fluctuate. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against loss.

Offshore Money Funds are not available to U.S. Persons (as described in the Prospectus) and may only be offered and sold in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933 by authorized entities.

Sub-advisory products are only available as a sub-advisory relationship.

Private funds are not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and interests in Private Funds are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933. Interests in Private Funds may only be offered to Accredited Investors and Qualified Purchasers. The presentation shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy interests, which may only be made at the time a qualified offeree receives a confidential offering memorandum describing the offering and related subscription agreement.
