Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income Fund

Pioneer Multi Asset Ultrashort Income Fund seeks a high level of current income to the extent consistent with a relatively high level of stability of principal. Normally, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in floating rate instruments of US and non-US issuers.

Seeking Income and Capital Appreciation in a Low Interest Rate Environment

Low yields and interest rate volatility have caused investors to seek new alternatives for short-term income. While it is not a money market fund, Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income Fund offers flexibility and diversification1 in a short duration2 strategy.

  • Enhanced Income Potential  – For investors willing to take on additional market risk, the Fund pursues returns in excess of money market funds, offering a broader range of income opportunities to enhance total return (download the full PDF for details).
  • Short Duration  – Invests in floating rate and fixed rate securities with short durations. Floating rate securities offer a variable interest rate that is reset periodically. The Fund's short duration strategy seeks to help protect investors from interest rate risk. As of March 31, 2022, the Fund's duration was 0.14 years.
  • High Quality – Has an overall high credit profile.

A Word About Risk: Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income 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. All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income (“MAUI”) Fund has the ability to invest in a wide variety of debt securities. The Fund may invest in underlying funds, including ETFs. In addition to the Fund’s operating expenses, you will indirectly bear the operating expenses of investments in any underlying funds. The Fund and some of the underlying funds employ leverage, which increases the volatility of investment returns and subjects the Fund to magnified losses if an underlying fund’s investments decline in value. 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. The Fund may invest in credit default swaps, which may in some cases be illiquid, and they increase credit risk since the fund has exposure to both the issuer of the referenced obligation and the counterparty to the credit default swap. The Fund may invest in subordinated securities which may be disproportionately adversely affected by a default or even a perceived decline in creditworthiness of the issuer. The Fund may invest in floating rate loans. The value of collateral, if any, securing a floating rate loan can decline or may be insufficient to meet the issuer’s obligations or may be difficult to liquidate. The Fund may invest in insurance-linked securities (ILS). The Fund could lose a portion or all of the principal it has invested in an ILS, and the right to additional interest and/or dividend payments with respect to the security, upon the occurrence of a trigger event that leads to physical or economic loss. ILS may expose the Fund to issuer (credit) default, liquidity, and other risks The Fund may invest in zero-coupon bonds and payment in kind securities, which may be more speculative and fluctuate more in value than other fixed income securities. The accrual of income from these securities are payable as taxable annual dividends to shareholders. Investments in equity securities are subject to price fluctuation. International investments are subject to special risks including currency fluctuations, social, economic and political uncertainties, which could increase volatility. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. Investments in fixed income securities involve interest rate, credit, inflation, and reinvestment risks. As interest rates rise, the value of fixed income securities falls. The Fund may invest in mortgage-backed securities, which during times of fluctuating interest rates may increase or decrease more than other fixed-income securities. Mortgage-backed securities are also subject to pre-payments. Prepayment risk is the chance that an issuer may exercise its right to prepay its security, if falling interest rates prompt the issuer to do so. Forced to reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, the Fund would experience a decline in income and lose the opportunity for additional price appreciation. High yield bonds possess greater price volatility, illiquidity, and possibility of default. There may be insufficient or illiquid collateral securing the floating rate loans held within the Fund. This may reduce the future redemption or recovery value of such loans. The Fund may have disadvantaged access to confidential information that could be used to assess a loan issuer, as Amundi US normally seeks to avoid receiving material, non-public information. Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income Fund is not a money market fund. These risks may increase share price volatility. There is no assurance that these and other strategies used by the Fund or underlying funds will be successful. Please see the prospectus for a more complete discussion of the Fund’s risks.
