Looking for Growth, but Concerned About Volatile Markets?

 

Pioneer Fundamental Growth Fund

The Fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in US large capitalization companies. We believe investing in quality stocks at attractive valuations can generate attractive risk-adjusted returns over time.

High Quality Focus Mitigates Downside Risk

We believe that a focused portfolio of companies that can generate high returns on growth capital, possess sustainable competitive advantages, capitalize on secular growth opportunities and trade at a discount to intrinsic value, can produce attractive risk-adjusted returns over a full market cycle.*

 

Sustainable competitive advantage

We look for companies with an economic moat, which creates a barrier to the competition and can potentially allow a company to produce high rates of return on their reinvestment of capital over longer periods of time.

High returns on growth capital

Growth capital is capital a company uses to grow its business versus simply maintain it. A high return on growth capital is an indication that a company is using capital efficiently and has the ability to create shareholder value over the long term.

Secular growth opportunities

A company must not only have a track record of growth, but be able to sustain it. We seek companies in industries that have steady tailwinds, which may help to maintain growth under broadly slowing economic conditions.

 * A full market cycle is defined as a period of bull, bear, and bull periods generally lasting four to five years.

Attractive Risk-Adjusted Returns with Low Volatility

For growth investors who fear the effects of volatile markets, Pioneer Fundamental Growth Fund offers an attractive track record of risk and reward.

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 markets securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic and political conditions. The Fund invests in a limited number of securities and, as a result, the Fund's performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds holding more securities. 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.
