Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
While equity investments have historically offered a higher rate of return, they may be more volatile and riskier than fixed income investments. Corporate bonds offer a fixed principal value and a fixed rate of return if held to maturity. Government bonds and Treasury securities are guaranteed as to the timely payment of interest and principal; corporate bonds are not.
Please note, these results are not usual and investors should not expect similar results. S&P 500 data shown combines a number of indices. The 90-stock Composite was calculated from 1926 through February 1957 when S&P introduced the S&P 500 stock average including 425 industrials, 25 rails and 50 utilities, weighting the index substantially in favor of the industrials. S&P did not calculate the 500-stock index prior to March 1957, but used the old 90-share index (as well as the old 50 industrials, 20 rails and 20 utilities indices) to extend the data back to 1928. Corporate bonds represented by the US Long-Term Corporate Bond Index, government bonds by the US Long-Term Government Bond Index; treasuries by the US 30-Day T-Bill Index and inflation by the Consumer Price Index, which is a general measure of inflation. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike mutual fund returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses associated with a mutual fund. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. The chart was prepared by Amundi US and is hypothetical, for illustrative purposes only. It does not represent the results of an investor’s actual experience with the Fund.
Source: Morningstar, Amundi US. Pioneer Fund’s A shares did not have an initial sales charge at inception. The initial sales charge on the A shares has varied throughout the Fund’s history and has sometimes been higher than the current initial sales charge of 5.75%. Keep in mind, the since inception results for Pioneer Fund are not usual and investors should not expect similar results. The results cover a lengthy time period where the effects of holding the Fund shares for the entire period and compounding had a material impact on the Fund’s return. It is important to note that there are no shareholders remaining from the Fund’s inception in 1928.
