Pioneer Fund manager's commentary
The Fund seeks reasonable income and capital growth by investing primarily in the equity securities of U.S. companies. The Fund diversifies across all sectors of the S&P 500® Index using an actively managed, bottom-up approach that seeks under-valued, high quality stocks of well established companies in well established businesses.
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
"We are long-term investors in high-quality large-cap companies. We invest in companies with attractive long-term growth and income potential at points in time when their stocks are temporarily out of favor, possibly profiting both from the market's subsequently recognizing their value and the companies' own ability to create shareholder value."
A WORD ABOUT RISK
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.
