Overall Morningstar Rating
We believe that: Sources of market inefficiencies vary over time. The best way to capitalize on these inefficiencies and pursue attractive risk-adjusted returns is through an integrated approach that combines fundamental bottom-up research and a top-down view of the global macroeconomic landscape in a well-diversified portfolio. Quality companies outperform. Quality companies are companies that have sustainable competitive advantages and can produce strong, unlevered returns on equity compared to their peers. Investing in attractively valued, high-quality companies can further contribute to strong risk-adjusted returns over time.

The integration of top-down and bottom-up perspectives has a compounding effect on the value of the investment team’s collective investment decisions.

Fund Overview | Pioneer Global Equity Fund
Distinguishing Features (continued) Focus on Quality and Active Management We invest in high quality companies because we believe they can outperform lower quality companies over time. High quality companies have competitive barriers that can help protect against competition. They also can tend to have higher returns on equity and lower debt than their peers, which may allow them to hold up better during periods of economic distress. We believe investing in high quality companies increases the return potential of the portfolio while reducing risk. The Fund also has a high active share,* which increases the opportunity for the team’s insights to meaningfully impact 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.

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. Public Offering Price reflects deduction of maximum 5.75% sales charge. NAV results represent percent changes in net asset values per share. 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. Performance for periods prior to the inception of Class Y shares on 12/31/08 reflects the NAV performance of the Fund’s Class A Shares. The performance does not reflect differences in expenses, including the 12b-1 fees applicable to Class A Shares. Since fees for Class A shares are generally higher than those of Class Y, the performance shown for the Class Y shares prior to their inception would have been higher. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized.

Source: Morningstar Ratings and rankings are based on past performance, which does not guarantee future results. Star ratings do not reflect the effect of any applicable sales load. The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchangetraded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Rankings are based on average annual total returns for listed periods and do not take into effect any applicable sales load. The Morningstar Rating and ranking are for Class Y shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
A Word About Risk 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 midsized 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 MSCI World Index measures the performance of stock markets in the developed world. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends, and unlike Fund returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses. You cannot invest directly in an index. Morningstar (MSTAR) World Large Stock category represents an equal-weighted average of all World Stock equity funds in the Morningstar universe with 40% or more of their equity holdings in foreign stocks (on average over three years).
