has completed its buyout of Amsouth's mutual fund management business. The deal was announced last June 27 and covers 23 mutual funds with approximately $5.2 billion in assets under management. The deal is Pioneer's fifth in the past two years.

The AmSouth transaction increases Pioneer's assets under management to approximately $48 billion as of today, said Osbert Hood
