This is our vision statement, it summarizes our aspirations and
ambitions. I believe that the knowledge and passion of each and
everyone of our people is key to our success in the market place.
Our history began in 1928, when legendary investor, Philip L. Carret,
founded the Pioneer Fund, now the third oldest mutual fund in the
United States. While we evolve to keep pace with the changes in the
marketplace, we are still true to our founder’s investment philosophy.
It has allowed us to face with confidence the downturns and the
different phases of the economic cycles over the last 85 years.
Having the right people on board has always been core to our business
strategy. This is why we continue to invest in the talent of today and
tomorrow. We remain committed to attracting and developing the
best people, those who are ready to make an impact from day
one and play their part in growing our business over time.
