A Word about Risk
Pioneer Global Equity Fund 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Pioneer International Equity Fund 1, 6, 7, 5
1. Investing in foreign and/or emerging markets securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. 2. This 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. 3. Investing in small and mid-sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short-term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. 4. The Fund may invest in derivatives, such as options and futures, and may disproportionately increase losses, and have a potentially larger impact on Fund performance. Derivatives may have a leveraging effect on the Fund. 5. 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. 6. To the extent the Fund invests in issuers located within specific countries or regions, the Fund may be particularly affected by adverse markets, rates, and events, which may occur in those countries and regions. 7. 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. These risks may increase share price volatility.
