U.S. MUTUAL FUNDS

overview

BNY Mellon has engaged Fayez Sarofim & Co. to serve as the sub-investment advisor of several mutual funds. The funds are managed by a team of portfolio managers, consisting of Alan Christensen, Catherine Crain, Gentry Lee, Christopher Sarofim and Charles Sheedy. Our partnership with BNY Mellon has enabled Fayez Sarofim & Co. to offer our investing style to a broader universe of investors, due to the low minimum investment required and customer support offered by BNY Mellon.

disclosure

Mutual fund investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.  Since it purchases equity securities, the Fund is subject to the risk that stock prices will fall over short or extended periods of time. Investing in foreign companies, including direct investments and through ADRs, which are traded on exchanges and represent an ownership in a foreign security, poses additional risks. These include, but are not limited to, risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. The Fund pursues a “growth style” of investing. Over time, a growth investing style may go in and out of favor, causing the Fund to sometimes underperform other equity funds that use differing investing styles.

To determine if the Sarofim Equity Fund is an appropriate investment for you, carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus which can be obtained by calling 1-855-SAROFIM or 1-855-727-6346. Please read it carefully before investing.

 The Sarofim Equity Fund is distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co. (SIDCO). The Fund is managed by Fayez Sarofim & Co. SIDCO is not affiliated with Fayez Sarofim & Co.
