Our Role

BNY Mellon Advisor Services is a division of BNY Mellon Securities Corporation (“BNYMSC”), a firm that is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as both a brokerdealer and investment adviser, and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Depending upon the products that BNY Mellon Advisor Services provides to you, BNYMSC may be acting as a broker-dealer or as an investment adviser. Also, the individual advisors within BNY Mellon Advisor Services that you work with (the “Advisors”) are licensed insurance agents with an affiliated insurance agency. We want you to be aware of the products and services that our Advisors can offer to you, the capacities in which BNYMSC and our Advisors are acting and the compensation that our Advisors receive for providing these products to you.

Our Products

Our Advisors can only offer and recommend the following products to you: (i) mutual funds that are managed, advised and/or administered by BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. or its affiliates (the “BNY Mellon Funds”), (ii) the Dreyfus Managed Asset Program (the “Program”), a wrap-fee investment advisory program that is sponsored by BNYMSC and offers certain distinct strategies and (iii) insurance products that are issued and underwritten by unaffiliated insurance companies. Importantly, our Advisors do not offer or recommend individual stocks, bonds, mutual funds (other than the BNY Mellon Funds) or any other investment product that you may be able to buy and sell in your account.

Brokerage Services

BNY Mellon Securities Corporation acts as a broker-dealer when an Advisor recommends BNY Mellon Funds and variable annuities. BNY Mellon Advisors make product recommendations after discussing your investment goals, risk tolerance, objectives and other information that your Advisor gathers from you. We do not have any discretion to act on your behalf, and you must approve all recommendations that we make. When you enter into a transaction with us in our capacity as a broker-dealer, you pay for the products you purchase, and the amount you pay may include a transaction fee, commission, sales load, sales charge or other expenses as part of the purchase price. In addition, you may pay ongoing fees as part of the investment. The prospectus of a BNY Mellon Fund or variable annuity product will include detailed information regarding the fees applicable to these investments.

Advisory Services

BNY Mellon Securities Corporation is the sponsor of the Dreyfus Managed Asset Program ("Program"). BNY Mellon Securities Corporation provides advisory services to you once you have entered into an Investment Advisory Agreement in connection with your participation in the Program. BNY Mellon Securities Corporation and your BNY Mellon Advisor will provide various services to you depending upon the particular Program strategy that you choose. You will be charged an annual advisory fee payable in quarterly installments based upon the level of assets in your Program account. Detailed information regarding the Program, including the distinct strategies and fees, is available in the Wrap Fee Program Brochure for the Program.

Insurance Products

Each Advisor that offers insurance products, including fixed, fixed index and variable annuities, as well as life insurance, is an insurance agent of BNY Mellon Insurance Agency, Inc., an insurance agency affiliated with BNY Mellon Securities Corporation, and each Advisor is appointed by the unaffiliated insurance companies that issue and underwrite the insurance products offered by BNY Mellon Securities Corporation and/or BNY Mellon Insurance Agency, Inc.

Firm and Advisor Compensation

If you purchase a BNY Mellon Fund that your Advisor recommends, BNY Mellon Securities Corporation and its affiliates receive fees from the Fund for the services that we and our Affiliates provide, and the levels of such fees vary among the Funds — meaning that BNY Mellon Securities Corporationand its affiliates benefit more when these fees are higher. For example, BNY Mellon Securities Corporation serves as the distributor of the BNY Mellon Funds and is compensated by the Funds for the distribution and/or shareholder services that it provides. In addition, BNY Mellon Securities Corporation’s affiliates provide a variety of other services to the BNY Mellon Funds, including investment advisory, transfer agency and custodial services, for which these affiliates receive fees from the Funds. If you are a shareholder in a BNY Mellon Fund, you bear a portion of these fees through the ongoing operating expenses of the Fund, which can vary from fund to fund and are described in each Fund’s prospectus. The total amount of the fees received by BNY Mellon Securities Corporation and its affiliates from a BNY Mellon Fund increases as the assets in that Fund increase.

If you purchase an insurance product that your Advisor recommends, BNY Mellon Securities Corporation and/or BNY Mellon Insurance Agency, Inc. receive compensation from the sponsoring insurance company that issues the insurance product and the compensation amount can vary depending on both the insurance company and the particular insurance product.

The Advisors are compensated in connection with the products they recommend to you based on the terms of a written compensation plan.

If you purchase a BNY Mellon Fund or insurance product that is recommended by an Advisor, the Advisor receives transaction-based compensation from us (not you). The Advisor’s transaction-based compensation is based on a fixed percentage of the total dollar amount of the purchase that does not vary based on the particular BNY Mellon Fund or insurance product recommended. If you elect to participate in the Dreyfus Managed Asset Program, the Advisor will receive compensation in the form of a percentage of the asset-based Program advisory fee that you pay for the ongoing services that the Advisor provides, and such percentage does not vary based on the Program strategy that is selected.

Variable annuities are insurance products with distinct features and costs. Variable annuities are complex insurance contract-related products. Before you invest, be sure to ask your sales representative about the variable annuity’s features, benefits, risks and fees and whether the variable annuity is appropriate for you based on your financial situation and objectives. There is risk involved in investing in variable annuities, including possible loss of principal. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

The recommendations made, if any, will be based on your overall financial condition and personal circumstances, and constructed from information you provide.

BNY Mellon Securities Corporation, a member of FINRA, is the distributor of the BNY Mellon Family of Funds and participates in wrap-fee programs, including the Dreyfus Managed Asset Program.
