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. For example:

 - 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.

4 reasons mutual funds may work for you

Middle-aged financial professional meeting with new client

Mutual funds are owned by about 68.7 million American households.1 But are they right for you? A mutual fund is a diversified portfolio of investments, such as stocks or bonds, managed by a professional investment manager or team of managers. When you buy shares of a mutual fund, you are essentially buying a piece of its entire portfolio.

Below are a few reasons why a mutual fund may be a fit for your investment needs.

You can start with a low initial investment

Mutual funds are often popular because they offer access to the stock and bond markets—as well as professional management and a diversified portfolio—for a relatively modest initial investment. So, you can get into the market for as little as $50 a month. For example, when investing in a Thrivent mutual fund, you could start with a $50 per month automatic investment.2  While mutual funds provide the potential to grow your money or generate income, they also carry the risk of loss of capital—just like stocks and bonds themselves.

No-load mutual funds can help reduce costs

You may have heard of no-load mutual funds. With a no-load fund, you would not be charged a commission or sales charge when you make or sell your investment. This may be one benefit of making a purchase directly with a mutual fund firm versus with a brokerage firm, although there are discount brokerage firms that may not charge commissions or fees, as well.

Leverage professional investment management

With a mutual fund, a professional investment manager determines which asset classes belong in your portfolio. You eliminate the need to build your own portfolio and manage this daily to stay in line with your investment objectives. This likely will reduce the time you spend managing your investments and allow you to plug into a team of experienced financial professionals. Some investors choose mutual funds simply for the convenience and time-saving aspects of having a team of professionals working to manage their investments.

Increase diversification of your investments

Diversification—the practice of owning a broad range of investments to mitigate risk—is a fundamental tenet of investing. Someone who invested all their money in just one stock could lose their entire investment, theoretically, if that stock became worthless. Someone who invested in that stock plus many others would face less risk.

One of the benefits of mutual fund investing is that it allows you to own a diversified portfolio for potentially less than it would cost you to build a prudently diversified portfolio on your own. Buying just 100 shares of a $30 stock, for example, would cost $3,000. Bonds are often sold in denominations of $1,000, $5,000 or higher. By contrast, a $3,000 investment in a mutual fund could get you a stake in a portfolio containing dozens or hundreds of individual securities, providing far greater diversification. Although diversification cannot eliminate risk, it may help mitigate losses in a down market.
