Pioneer Global Multisector Income Fund



The Fund seeks high current income by actively managing a diversified portfolio of U.S. and international high yield and investment-grade debt securities. It selects sector concentrations driven by evaluation of capital markets. The Fund actively adjusts a blend of fixed-income securities to manage risk, seek enhanced yield, and offer total return potential.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.


"Having the flexibility to invest in a broad range of issuers and segments of the debt securities markets across countries and regions, sectors and industries, helps us identify what we believe to be the best opportunities for above-average total return. We strive to meet this objective through a combination of top-down, fixed-income macro-analysis and bottom-up fundamental research on individual securities."


Investing in foreign and/or emerging markets securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. 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. Investments in the Fund are subject to possible loss due to the financial failure of issuers of underlying securities and their inability to meet their debt obligations. Investments in high-yield or lower rated securities are subject to greater-than-average price volatility, illiquidity and possibility of default. 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. The portfolio may invest in mortgage-backed securities, which during times of fluctuating interest rates may increase or decrease more than other fixedincome securities. Mortgage-backed securities are also subject to pre-payments. The securities issued by U.S. Government-sponsored entities (e.g., FNMA, Freddie Mac) are neither guaranteed nor issued by the U.S. Government. Floating rate loans and similar instruments may be illiquid or less liquid than other instruments, and the value of any collateral can decline or be insufficient to meet the issuer's obligations. The value of municipal securities can be adversely affected by changes in financial condition of municipal issuers, lower revenues, and regulatory and political developments. The Fund is subject to currency risk, meaning that the Fund could experience losses based on changes in the exchange rate between non-U.S. currencies and the U.S. dollar. 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. These risks may increase share price volatility.

Fund Facts

(load waived) (load adjusted)
Overall Morningstar RatingTM
(out of 329 funds in the World Bond Category)

Morningstar proprietary ratings reflect risk-adjusted performance as of 5/31/16

The Overall Morningstar RatingTM is based on a weighted average of the star ratings assigned to a fund's three, five, and ten year (as applicable) time periods. The Morningstar Category identifies funds based on their underlying portfolio holdings. Classifications are based on portfolio statistics and compositions over the past three years. For funds less than three years old, category classifications are based on life of the fund. Pioneer Global Multisector Income Fund was rated exclusively against U.S.-domiciled world bond funds as follows: 4 and 4 stars (load waived) and 3 and 3 stars (load adjusted) among 329 and 253 funds for the three- and five-year periods ended 5/31/16, respectively. The Morningstar Rating is for Class A Shares only. Morningstar Load Waived ratings do not take into account Class A sales charges. Ratings may vary among share classes and are based on past performance, which is no guarantee of future results.

Please see a prospectus for complete information pertaining to load waived eligibility (such as large purchases or certain types of group plan participants). For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Within each asset class, the top 10%, the next 22.5%, 35%, 22.5%, and the bottom 10% receive 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 star, respectively. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Each fund is rated exclusively against U.S. domiciled funds. The following copyright pertains only to Morningstar information.

The 30-day SEC yield is based on the hypothetical annualized earning power (investment income only) of the Fund's portfolio securities during the period indicated.

The Average Maturity of certain funds might not be a useful measure if they contain securities with principal paydowns, such as mortgage passthroughs. Instead, market participants calculate Average Life, which reflects the average time to receipt of principal payments (scheduled principal payments and projected prepayments).
