BNY Mellon International Stock Index Fund

Why invest in this Fund?

The fund seeks to match the performance of the Morgan Stanley Capital International Europe, Australasia, Far East Free Index (the 'Index'). To pursue this goal, the fund generally is fully invested in stocks included in the Index.

The fund attempts to have a correlation between its performance and that of the Index of at least .95, before expenses. A correlation of 1.00 would mean that the fund and the Index were perfectly correlated.

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 I shares of the fund represent the performance of the fund's Investor Shares 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

        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.

        The fund uses an indexing strategy. It does not attempt to manage market volatility, use defensive strategies or reduce the effects of any long-term periods of poor stock performance.
