Fergal joined the firm in 2008 and has 24 years of investment experience, all focused on fundamental global equity investing. Walter will continue to work with Bradley, Lawrence, Howard and Fergal during a transition period until he leaves the firm.

Michele Garau, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager, has decided to retire in the fourth quarter of 2022. Michele has been in the investment management industry for over 40 years and has been with Amundi US for the past 19 years. Michele has served on the portfolio management team of both Pioneer Flexible Opportunities Fund and Pioneer Multi-Asset Income Fund. Fergal Jackson is named Portfolio Manager of Pioneer Multi-Asset Income, joining Marco Pirondini and Howard Weiss.
