Federico Ghizzoni, CEO of UniCredit, thanked Pierri “for his many contributions to Pioneer over the last eleven years, and especially during his two and a half years as CEO.”

UniCredit’s CEO also acknowledged that under Pierri’s leadership Pioneer has seen outstanding investment performance, posting approximately a total of €24bn net inflows over the past two years.
