    BNY Mellon Global Real Return Fund

    Why invest in this Fund?

    The fund seeks total return (consisting of capital appreciation and income). To pursue its investment objective, the fund uses an actively-managed multi-asset strategy to produce absolute or real returns with less volatility than major equity markets over a complete market cycle, typically a period of five years. Rather than managing to track a benchmark index, the fund seeks to provide returns that are largely independent of market moves.

      Prospectus Fee Table Expense Ratios

      As of  03/01/23 Fee Description Expense Ratio (%)
      Management Fee 0.75%
      Service Fee 0.25%
      Other Expenses 0.11%
      Acquired Fund Fees & Expenses 0.07%
      Total Expenses 1.18%
      Expenses Reimbursed 0.02%
      Net Expenses 1.16%
      Total Expenses is the total annual operating expense ratio for the fund, before any fee waivers or expense reimbursements. Net Expenses is the total annual operating expense ratio for the fund, after any applicable fee waivers or expense reimbursements. The Total Expenses, or Net Expenses (if including fee waivers or expense reimbursements) is the actual fund expense ratio applicable to investors.
      The fund's investment adviser, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc., has contractually agreed, for so long as the fund invests in the subsidiary, to waive the management fee it receives from the fund in the amount equal to the management fee paid to BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. by the subsidiary. In addition, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. has contractually agreed, until March 1, 2024, to waive receipt of its fees and/or assume the direct expenses of the fund so that the direct expenses of none of the fund's classes (excluding Rule 12b-1 fees, shareholder services fees, taxes, interest expense, brokerage commissions, commitment fees on borrowings and extraordinary expenses) exceed .90%. On or after March 1, 2024, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. may terminate this expense limitation agreement at any time. Because "acquired fund fees and expenses" are incurred indirectly by the fund, as a result of its investments in underlying funds, such fees and expenses are not included in the expense limitation.

      Sales Charge

      There is a 1% CDSC for purchases of $1,000,000 and over if redeemed within one year of purchase.


      Portfolio Manager/Sub-Investment Adviser

      Aron Pataki and Andrew Warwick are the fund's primary portfolio managers, positions they have held since December 2015 and January 2019, respectively. Messrs. Pataki and Warwick are global investment managers and members of the real return team at NIM.

          MORNINGSTAR CATEGORY Tactical Allocation


          Morningstar Rating™ as of 01/31/24 for the Class A shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Tactical Allocation. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 3 Stars (231 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 3 Stars (231 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 3 Stars (213 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 3 Stars (141 funds rated).
          The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products with at least a 3-year history. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance (not including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees if applicable), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Managed products; including open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds; are considered a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-,and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. © Morningstar, Inc.

The fund represents a single portfolio with multiple share classes that have different expense structures. Other share classes may have achieved different results.

          LIPPER CLASSIFICATION Absolute Return Funds


          Lipper Category returns and rankings as of 01/31/24, are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns. Rankings do not reflect sales loads

          Main Risks

          Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks to varying degrees.
          Small and midsized company stocks tend to be more volatile and less liquid than larger company stocks as these companies are less established and have more volatile earnings histories.
          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.
          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.
          Short sales involve selling a security the portfolio does not own in anticipation that the security's price will decline. Short sales may involve risk and leverage, and expose the portfolio to the risk that it will be required to buy the security sold short at a time when the security has appreciated in value, thus resulting in a loss.
          The use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the underlying assets. Derivatives can be highly volatile, illiquid, and difficult to value and there is the risk that changes in the value of a derivative held by the portfolio will not correlate with the underlying instruments or the portfolio's other investments.

          Risk Metrics

          As of  01/31/24  3-Year Trailing Standard Deviation Alpha Beta R-Squared Sharpe Ratio
          DRRAX
          6.79 -2.08 0.44 64.04 -0.28

          All risk metrics are provided by Morningstar. The index used in the calculations are determined by Morningstar which may not be the funds primary benchmark. The index Morningstar used for this analysis is Morningstar Moderate Target Risk Index.


          Alpha - Alpha is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

          Beta - Beta is a measure of a security’s or portfolio’s volatility, or systematic risk.

          R-Squared - R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

          Sharpe Ratio - Sharpe ratio is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better.

          Standard Deviation - Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.
