    BNY Mellon Smallcap Stock Index Fund

    Why invest in this Fund?

    The fund seeks to match the performance of the Standard & Poor's SmallCap 600 Index (the "Index"). To pursue its goal, the fund generally is fully invested in all of the stocks that comprise the S&P SmallCap 600® Index and in futures whose performance is tied to the index. The fund generally invests in all 600 stocks in the index in proportion to their weighting in the index; however, at times, the fund may invest in a representative sample of stocks included in the index and in futures whose performance is tied to the index. Under these circumstances, the fund expects to invest in approximately 500 or more of the stocks in the index.

          Overall Morningstar Rating


          MORNINGSTAR CATEGORY Small Blend


          Morningstar Rating™ as of 03/31/24 for the Investor Shares shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Small Blend. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 3 Stars (584 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 2 Stars (584 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 2 Stars (552 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 3 Stars (384 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.

          LIPPER CLASSIFICATION Small-Cap Core Funds


          Lipper Category returns and rankings as of 03/31/24, 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.
          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.

          Risk Metrics

          As of  03/31/24  3-Year Trailing Standard Deviation Alpha Beta R-Squared Sharpe Ratio
          DISSX
          20.83 -8.63 1.00 71.91 0.05

          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 S&P 500® 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.
