What Makes This Fund Different?

  • Ultra Short Duration A target of one year or less seeks a measure of protection against market volatility

  • Bias Toward Higher Quality Securities Another means of risk management

  • Portfolio Management Expertise Over 20 years of combined investment experience in managing floating rate securities

  • Low Volatility Pursues NAV stability through a high level of diversification* across a number of different sectors. Management follows a diligent risk management process

  • Highly Competitive Income For investors willing to accept greater risk yet higher income than money markets or other cash-equivalent investments

*Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.

How can the Fund help hedge against interest rate risk?

Floating Rate Securities – The Fund invests in floating rate securities which include bank loans, event-linked securities, mortgage-backed securities and money market instruments. Unlike other types of fixed income securities whose rates are fixed, the income component of floating rate securities rises as interest rates rise. This can help play an important role in an investor's total asset allocation by potentially offering protection against rising rates.

Low Volatility – The Fund is managed to pursue greater NAV stability over time than the average of the funds in the Morningstar Short-Term Bond and Intermediate-Term Bond categories.

Enhanced Income Potential – Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income Fund seeks enhanced income versus money market accounts and CDs by offering a broad range of income opportunities. However, the Fund’s NAV can fluctuate.
