A Tiered Approach to
Your Cash Needs

Solid planning with a tiered framework to help you achieve your objectives

Operating, Core And Strategic Cash

Dreyfus Cash Solutions offers a diverse set of products that may improve income and/or return potential across the spectrum of available cash pools – and with a lower risk profile than might be expected. By creating an account plan using a “tiered” investment strategy, we can help break down your inventory of cash to provide the necessary liquidity and income potential for your overall portfolio.

Structure your inventory of cash with a range of products from those designed for ready liquidity to those with moderate maturity extension that pursue higher yields, to ones with investment grade credit quality for a long-term horizon (up to a 3-year duration).

5 The Insured Network Deposit (IND) Service, an FDIC insured, multi-bank deposit program designed to provide an alternative to offering traditional money market mutual funds as a cash sweep option.

BNYMSC and Pershing are subsidiaries of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BNY Mellon). Promontory Interfinancial Network is not affiliated with BNY Mellon.

6 Such funds are not money market funds and therefore are not subject to the maturity, quality, liquidity and diversification requirements applicable to money market funds. Short-term bond funds do not attempt to maintain a stable NAV and may be subject to greater risk than money market funds. There are also substantial differences in the objectives and investment limitations between money market funds and the investments found in ultra short bond funds.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a money market fund carefully before investing.
