      • Mr. Sharkey, a Senior Vice President, joined Amundi Pioneer in 2006 and has been an investment professional since 1994.

    Portfolio Management Perspective

    "Our approach is to focus on higher quality loans than is typical for most bank loan funds, which we hope will allow for downside protection that will help manage risk. This may be an option for investors who want to diversify their fixed-income portfolios with a fund that may help protect their portfolios against a rise in interest rate."

    A WORD ABOUT RISK

    Debt securities rated below investment grade are commonly referred to as "junk bonds" and are considered speculative. Below investment grade debt securities involve greater risk of loss, are subject to greater price volatility and are less liquid, especially during periods of economic uncertainty or change, than higher rated debt securities. The Fund may invest in high yield securities of any rating, including securities that are in default at the time of purchase. Securities with floating interest rates generally are less sensitive to interest rate changes but may decline in value if their interest rates do not rise as much, or as quickly, as prevailing interest rates. Unlike fixed-rate securities, floating rate securities generally will not increase in value if interest rates decline. Changes in interest rates also will affect the amount of interest income the Fund earns on its floating rate investments. Investing in foreign and/or emerging market securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. These risks may increase share price volatility.

    Fund Performance

    10K chart

     

    Chart is for illustrative purposes. These results represent the percentage change in net asset value per share. Returns would have been lower had sales charges been reflected.

     
    For the most recent month-end performance results click here. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.


    The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results.
    Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.



    Performance results reflect any applicable expense waivers in effect during the periods shown. Without such waivers, fund performance would be lower. Waivers may not be in effect for all funds. Certain fee waivers are contractual through a specified period. Otherwise, fee waivers can be rescinded at any time. See the prospectus and financial statements for more information.

    *The Bloomberg Barclays (BBG Barc) High Yield Loans Performing Index was the Fund's benchmark from inception to 9/30/16, when the Bloomberg Barclays Index ceased. As of 10/1/16, the Fund's benchmark is the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Performing Loan Index. Both the BBG Barc High Yield Loans Performing Index and the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Performing Loan Index (benchmark) provide broad and comprehensive total return metrics of the U.S. universe of syndicated term loans.The "linked" benchmark (Pioneer Floating Rate Fund Linked Benchmark) returns provided represent the combination of the Bloomberg Barclays Index's returns from 2/14/07 through 9/30/16, and the S&P/LSTA Index's returns from 10/1/16 through the most recent period as indicated. Performance for the 2016 Calendar Year Returns represents combined performance of the BBG Barc High Yield Loans Performing Index and the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Performing Loan Index.
    Class A Share (POP): Reflects the deduction of maximum 4.50% sales charge.
    Class C Return if Redeemed: The performance of Class C shares does not reflect the 1% front-end sales charge in effect prior to February 1, 2004. If you paid a 1% sales charge, your returns would be lower than shown above. Class C Shares held for less than one year are subject to a 1% contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC).
    The performance of Class K shares for the period prior to the commencement of operations of Class K shares on 12/10/13 is the net asset value performance of the fund's Class A shares, which has not been restated to reflect any differences in expenses, including 12b-1 fees applicable to Class A shares. Class K shares are not subject to sales charges and are available for limited groups of eligible investors, including institutional investors.
    Class Y shares are not subject to sales charges and are available for limited groups of investors, including institutional investors.
    NAV results represent the percent change in net asset value per share. Returns would have been lower had sales charges been reflected. The S&P/LSTA Leveraged Performing Loan Index (benchmark) provides broad and comprehensive total return metrics of the U.S. universe of syndicated term loans. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses. You cannot invest directly in an index. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized. The Morningstar Bank Loan Category Average measures the performance of bank loans within the Morningstar universe. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses. You cannot invest directly in an index. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized.

    The 30-day SEC yield is based on the hypothetical annualized earning power (investment income only) of the Fund's portfolio securities during the period indicated.

    The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results.
    Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

    Performance results reflect any applicable expense waivers in effect during the periods shown. Without such waivers, fund performance would be lower. Waivers may not be in effect for all funds. Certain fee waivers are contractual through a specified period. Otherwise, fee waivers can be rescinded at any time. See the prospectus and financial statements for more information.

    The Average Maturity of certain funds might not be a useful measure if they contain securities with principal paydowns, such as mortgage passthroughs. Instead, market participants calculate Average Life, which reflects the average time to receipt of principal payments (scheduled principal payments and projected prepayments).
