Pioneer Disciplined Value Fund seeks long-term capital growth through an investment approach that includes fundamental and quantitative analysis, investing in a portfolio comprised primarily of US value stocks of any market capitalization.


We believe in a consistent, disciplined investment process based on fundamental research, quantitative analysis and active portfolio management. This three-pillared approach is supported by a management team that seeks a careful balance of risk and reward, which we apply to each of our investment portfolios.


“Career Analyst” Model

We believe our team’s extensive
experience allows us to leverage a
deeper understanding of industry
dynamics, secular and cyclical
themes, and fundamental risks

Consistently Applied Valuation Framework

Fundamental valuation analysis
driven primarily by proprietary
economic value added (EVA)

Disciplined Portfolio Construction

Conviction weighted portfolio
construction process with
a substantial risk overlay designed
to maximize the risk-return profile.

We Believe Now is the Time to Invest in the Value Rotation

  • Higher Inflation and Interest Rates: Historically value indices have been more exposed to inflation-sensitive stocks than growth indices, therefore value stocks have typically benefited more from higher inflation and higher interest rates than growth stocks. Higher interest rates can increase the cost of capital for long-duration assets such as growth stocks.
  • Attractive Valuations: Growth’s relative valuation premium to Value remains at historic highs and markets are now positioned for a rotation to Value instead.
  •  Technology Adoption: We believe many value companies will be early adopters of new technology, which may create competitive advantages, helping to propel and revolutionize their business models.


Value's Long-Term Outperformance Over Growth

Illustration is based on a $1.00 initial investment in two hypothetical portfolios, one of value stocks and one of growth stocks, on January 1, 1927 to June 30, 2023. Data is derived from Fama/French style of value and growth characterization using book-to-market ratio. The two portfolios shown in the chart are the high book-to-market (Value) and its matching low book-to-market portfolio (Growth). Price, dividend, shares, and volume data are historically adjusted for split events to make data directly comparable at different times during the history of a security.

The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Class Y shares are not subject to sales charges and are available for limited groups of investors, including institutional investors. Initial investments are subject to a $5 million investment minimum, which may be waived in some circumstances. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Other share classes are available for which performance and expenses will differ. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized.

Performance results reflect any applicable expense waivers in effect during the periods shown. Without such waivers, fund performance would be lower. Waivers may not be in effect for all funds. Certain fee waivers are contractual through a specified period. Otherwise, fee waivers can be rescinded at any time. The Net Expense Ratio reflects contractual expense limitations currently in effect through 1/1/2025 for Class Y Shares. There can be no assurance that Amundi US will extend the expense limitations beyond such time. Please see the prospectus and financial statements for more information.

Book-to-market ratio compares a company’s book value to its market value. The book value is the value of assets minus the value of the liabilities. The market value of a company is the market price of one of its shares multiplied by the number of shares outstanding. Standard Deviation is a statistical measure of the historic volatility of a portfolio; a lower standard deviation indicates historically less volatility. Sharpe Ratio is a risk-adjusted measure calculated to determine reward per unit of risk. It uses a standard deviation and excess return. The higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better the portfolio’s historical risk-adjusted performance. Information Ratio is a measure of portfolio management’s performance (excess returns vs. a benchmark) as compared to the volatility of those returns. The higher the ratio, the better. Up Market Capture/Down Market Capture is a measure of relative performance versus an index during either those periods when the index had only positive or negative returns. An up market ratio of 110% suggests outperformance of the index by 10% during periods with positive returns. Contrarily, a down market ratio of 90% suggests outperformance of the index by 10% during periods with negative returns. Alpha represents excess return relative to the return of the benchmark. A positive alpha suggests value added by the manager versus the benchmark.

The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of large-cap US value stocks. The Morningstar Large Value Category Average tracks the performance of large cap value funds within the Morningstar universe. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike mutual fund returns, do not reflect and fees or expenses associated with a mutual fund. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized.

A Word About Risk: Pioneer Disciplined Value Fund

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. The Fund may invest in fewer than 40 securities and, as a result, its performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds holding more securities. 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. Investing in foreign and/or emerging markets securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions.
