The enhancements to Dreyfus CIS' money market fund range over the next several months will result in:

  • A streamlined product offering of 19 funds across three fund families to provide investment choice across all major money market asset classes.
  • A uniform pricing structure within each fund family to improve client navigation, as well as reduced management fees in four retail funds and one institutional fund.
  • Broader investor eligibility through lower investment minimums in many fund share classes.

"For nearly 50 years, as markets and client needs have changed, Dreyfus CIS has met the cash management needs and preferences of investors," said Stephanie Pierce, CEO of ETF, Index, and Cash Investment Strategies at BNY Mellon Investment Management. "As part of BNY Mellon, Dreyfus CIS offers clients deep investment expertise, resilient infrastructure, and a record of strong financial stewardship across the entire cash spectrum. Streamlining our money market fund range is part of our ongoing commitment to providing clients with the professional money management and competitive market returns they expect from us."

These actions build upon Dreyfus CIS' other recent enhancements, which include trading platform technology upgrades that are currently being rolled out to institutional and intermediary clients, the launch of a money market IMPACT strategy (Diversity & Inclusion)2, and updates to the investment guidelines on one government money market fund to help meet the needs of Federal Credit Unions.

All fund changes have been approved by the respective Fund Boards and certain actions will require shareholder approval over the coming months.
