The Dreyfus Corporation (Dreyfus) is the investment adviser for the fund. Dreyfus has engaged its affiliate, EACM Advisors LLC (EACM), to serve as the fund's portfolio allocation manager, responsible for evaluating and recommending subadvisers for the fund. Keith L. Stransky and Robert B. Mayerick, each of EACM, have been primarily responsible for the evaluation and recommendation of subadvisers since the fund's inception. Mr. Stransky is the chief investment officer and a senior portfolio manager for EACM, and Mr. Mayerick is a senior vice president and portfolio manager of EACM. Currently, the fund's assets are allocated among seven subadvisers Lombardia Capital Partners, LLC, Neuberger Berman Management LLC, Thompson, Siegel and Walmsley LLC, Walthausen & Co., Iridian Asset Management LLC, Kayne Anderson Rudnick Investment Management, LLC and Vulcan Value Partners, LLC who provide the fund with portfolio managers responsible for the day-to-day management of the portion of the fund's portfolio managed by the respective subadviser.
The fund uses a "multi-manager" approach by selecting one or more subadvisers to manage the fund's assets. The fund may hire, terminate or replace subadvisers and modify material terms and conditions of subadvisory arrangements without shareholder approval.

- Price/earnings for a stock is the ratio of the company's most recent month-end share price to the company's estimated earnings per share (EPS) for the current fiscal year. If a third-party estimate for the current year EPS is not available, Morningstar will calculate an internal estimate based on the most recently reported EPS and average historical earnings growth rates. Price/ earnings is one of the five value factors used to calculate the Morningstar Style Box. For portfolios, this historical P/E data point is calculated by taking an asset-weighted average of the earnings yields (E/P) of all the stocks in the portfolio and then taking the reciprocal of the result.
