Pioneer launches multi-asset fund

Poineer_inv_logoPioneer Investments has launched a multi-asset fund designed to meet demand that the firm says exists for strategies that can manage market volatility, protect against inflation and preserve capital. The Pioneer Funds – Multi Asset Real Return fund is a “global, dynamic and flexible approach to pursuing consistent returns”. Pioneer says the fund should allow investors the opportunity to be rapidly exposed to best-in-class high-conviction bets, whilst aiming to protect them against market volatility via diversification in smaller positions across low correlated asset classes. Pioneer says the fund’s “go-anywhere” approach provides a more diversified, inflation-hedge complement. It is a mirror fund of a US-domiciled fund and will be managed by the same team. ©2011 funds europe
