Why Focus on Quality Companies?


Pioneer Global Equity Fund

We believe quality companies with sustainable competitive advantages can outperform their peers.  By taking active positions in the securities we own, we seek to differentiate ourselves versus the Fund’s benchmark and Morningstar peer group.

What Makes This Fund Different?

We believe quality companies with sustainable competitive advantages can outperform their peers.  By taking active positions in the securities we own, we seek to differentiate ourselves versus the Fund’s benchmark and Morningstar peer group.


Integrated Investment Approach

The Fund combines quantitative screening with bottom-up  fundamental analysis and top-down macroeconomic themes, seeking to maximize risk-adjusted returns.

Comprehensive Risk Management 

The team manages risk at the security, sector, country and portfolio level using sophisticated risk analytic tools.

Experienced Investment Team 

The Fund’s management team has average industry experience of more than 20 years.

Why Does Active Share Matter?

Active share reflects the percentage of stock holdings in a fund’s portfolio that differ from the benchmark index. A higher active share increases the opportunity for the team’s insights to have a meaningful impact on performance relative to the benchmark. 

By diversifying our active share across companies, sectors and countries, we minimize the risk that any one event will significantly detract from performance.

A Word About Risk:
The market prices of securities may go up or down, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably, due to general market conditions, such as real or perceived adverse economic, political, or regulatory conditions, recessions, inflation, changes in interest or currency rates, lack of liquidity in the bond markets, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues or adverse investor sentiment. Investing in foreign and/or emerging market securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. The fund is subject to currency risk, meaning that the fund could experience losses based on changes in the exchange rate between non-US currencies and the US dollar. Investing in small and mid-sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short-term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. When interest rates rise, the prices of fixed-income securities in the Fund will generally fall. Conversely, when interest rates fall, the prices of fixed-income securities in the Fund will generally rise. The Fund may use derivatives, such as options, futures, inverse floating rate obligations, swaps, and others, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses, and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance. Derivatives may have a leveraging effect on the Fund. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors. These risks may increase share price volatility. 

The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) World Index
