Sell Shares

You may sell shares through your investment professional or by contacting Pioneer directly. We provide several convenient methods for selling shares. Whichever method you choose, shares will be sold at the net asset value, less any applicable contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC), next determined after we receive your complete request. If your complete request is received after the close of the New York Stock Exchange (usually 4:00 p.m. Eastern time), shares will be sold using the price of the next business day.

Please note, if your account does not have a certified tax identification number, Backup Withholding may be deducted from the proceeds.

Selling Online

If your account is registered in your name, you may be able to buy, exchange or sell fund shares online. Your investment firm may also be able to buy, exchange or sell your fund shares online.

To establish online transaction privileges:

  • For new accounts, complete the online section of the account application
  • For existing accounts, complete an Account Options Form or write to the transfer agent

If you have an eligible non-retirement account, you may sell up to $100,000 per account per day online. You may not sell your shares by phone or online if you have changed your address (for checks) or your bank information (for wires or transfers) in the last 30 days. You may receive your sale proceeds:

  • By check, provided the check is made payable exactly as your account is registered

  • By bank wire or by electronic funds transfer, provided the sales proceeds are being sent to your bank address of record

To use online transactions, you must read and agree to the terms of an online transaction agreement available on this site. When you or your investment firm requests an online transaction, requires an authorizing password and sends a written confirmation. The fund may implement other procedures from time to time. Different procedures may apply if you have a non-U.S. account or if your account is registered in the name of an institution, broker-dealer or other third party. You may not be able to use the online transaction privilege for certain types of accounts, including most retirement accounts.

For more information about exchanging shares online, please see any Pioneer fund prospectus. They are available on this site.

Selling by Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP)

Pioneer's Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) lets you automatically sell shares from your Pioneer account on a regular basis. Your withdrawals will continue until you choose to change or cancel the plan, or the account balance is exhausted.

When establishing a SWP, keep in mind that:

  • Your account must have a value of at least $10,000 when you establish the plan.
  • The minimum payment amount is $50. Payments from Class B and Class C Share accounts are limited to 10% of the account value when you establish the plan; otherwise, there is no maximum payment amount.
  • Payments may be made by check or by direct deposit to a bank account.
  • Establishment of some SWPs may require a Signature Validation Program Stamp.
  • Special conditions may apply to SWPs for retirement accounts. Contact your investment professional, or our Retirement Specialists at 1-800-622-0176 for more information.
