This ETF is different from traditional ETFs. Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your investment. Expand for more info.
  • You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to charge more for trades when they have less information.
  • The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because it provides less information to traders.
  • These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.
  • The ETF will publish on its website each day a “Proxy Portfolio” designed to help trading in shares of the ETF. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the ETF’s holdings, it is not the ETF’s actual portfolio.

The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategy. This may improve the ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategy, however, this may hurt the ETF’s performance. For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of the ETF, see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus.

New accounts with a minimum investment amount of $50 are offered through the Thrivent Mutual Funds "automatic purchase plan." Otherwise, the minimum initial investment requirement is $2,000 for non-retirement accounts and $1,000 for IRA or tax-deferred accounts, minimum subsequent investment requirement is $50 for all account types.

Barron's Methodology: Barron’s rankings are based on asset-weighted returns in five categories — general equity funds; world equity funds (including international and global portfolios); mixed asset funds (which invest in stocks, bonds and other securities); taxable bond funds; and tax-exempt bond funds — as calculated by Refinitiv Lipper. Barron’s Methodology did not include sales charges in calculating returns. Each fund’s return was measured against those of all funds in its Refinitiv Lipper category, resulting in a percentile ranking which was then weighted by asset size, relative to the fund family’s other assets in its general classification. If a family’s biggest funds do well, that boosts its overall ranking; poor performance in its biggest funds hurts a firm’s ranking. To be included in the ranking, a firm must must have had at least three funds in Refinitiv Lipper’s general equity category, one world equity category, one mixed-asset (such as balanced or target-date fund), at least two taxable-bond funds and one national tax-exempt bond fund. Beginning in 2017, previously excluded single-sector and country equity funds are factored into the rankings as general equity. The rankings exclude all passive index funds, including pure index, enhanced index and index-based, but include actively managed ETFs and so-called smart-beta ETFs, which are passively managed but created from active strategies. Finally, the score is multiplied by the weighting of its general classification, as determined by the entire Refinitiv Lipper universe of funds.
