    BNY Mellon Investment Portfolios, Technology Growth Portfolio

    Why invest in this Fund?

    The fund seeks capital appreciation.

    To pursue this goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in the stocks of growth companies of any size that the manager believes to be leading producers or beneficiaries of technological innovation. Up to 25% of the fund's assets may be invested in foreign securities. The fund's stock investments may include common stocks, preferred stocks and convertible securities of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including those purchased in initial public offerings.

    In choosing stocks, the fund looks for technology companies with the potential for strong earnings or revenue growth rates, although some of the fund's investments may currently be experiencing losses. The fund's investment process centers on a multi-dimensional approach that look for opportunities across emerging growth, cyclical or stable growth companies. The fund's investment approach seeks companies that appear to have strong earnings momentum, positive earnings revisions, favorable growth, product or market cycles and/or favorable valuations.

    The fund typically sells a stock when the manager believes there is a more attractive alternative, or there are deteriorating fundamentals, such as a loss of competitive advantage, a failure in management execution or deteriorating capital structure. The fund also may sell stocks when the manager's evaluation of a sector has changed.

    Asset Allocation


        Main Risks

        An investment in the fund is not a bank deposit. It is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. It is not a complete investment program. The fund's share price fluctuates, sometimes dramatically, which means you could lose money.
        Equity funds are subject generally to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks, among other factors, to varying degrees, all of which are more fully described in the fund's prospectus.
        Technology companies involve greater risk because their earnings tend to be less predictable, their share prices more volatile, and their securities less liquid than larger, more established companies. Some of the fund's investments in technology companies will rise and fall based on investor perceptions rather than economics. Certain technology companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources. Investor perception may play a greater role in determining the day-to-day value of tech stocks than it does in other sectors.
        The fund's share price is likely to be more volatile than other funds that do not concentrate in one sector. The technology sector involves special risks, such as the faster rate of change and obsolescence of technological advances, and has been among the most volatile sectors of the stock market.
        The technology sector has been among the most volatile sectors of the stock market. Because the fund's investments are concentrated in the technology sector, its performance will be affected dramatically by developments in that sector.
