Pioneer Fundamental Growth Fund manager's commentary
The Fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in the equity securities of U.S. companies that management believes have better than average growth potential. The Fund's managers employ a disciplined, bottom-up process for security identification and selection, and then apply state-of-the-art portfolio construction techniques to ensure appropriate diversification and risk levels.
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
"The pursuit of under-priced stocks has as much validity in growth investing as it does in value investing. That's why we are careful to select stocks with strong free cash flow growth that has not yet been reflected in their price."
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 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.
