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.

1 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. Account minimums for other options vary.

Thrivent ETFs may be purchased through your financial professional or brokerage platforms.

Contact your financial professional or brokerage firm to understand minimum investment amounts when purchasing a Thrivent ETF.

INVESTING ESSENTIALS

How much are you missing out on every day you dont invest?

07/20/2021

 

"A study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year."

- Marty Allen

By Gene Walden, Senior Finance Editor | 07/20/2021

With so many needs that command your attention every day, you may find yourself putting off tackling your long-term investment plan. But there is a compelling reason to start investing as soon as you can – the power of time.

By starting your investment plan now, you may be able to achieve the long-term results you’re seeking with just a fraction of the dollars you’d need to invest.

Value of a head start

Since financial markets fluctuate constantly, no matter when you begin funding your investment plan you can expect to see the value of your mutual funds rise and fall on an ongoing basis. But over time, the historical long-term trend of investments has been positive. In the stock market, for example, the S&P 500 has posted an average annual return over the past century and the past 50 years of about 11%. Your returns could vary year-to-year, as past results are no guarantee of future returns.

There’s no clear advantage to putting off investing for the “perfect” moment to enter the market. But, there is a very powerful reason for starting right now – an early start could enable you to build a bigger portfolio at a fraction of the cost.

The chart shows the dramatic difference that early investing can make. If you began investing $100 a month right now and continued doing so for the next 10 years—and then never invested again—you could still earn more over the next 50 years than if you had waited 10 years to start, and then invested $100 a month for 40 years. Here’s the math:

The value of a head start: Investing $100 per month

Comparative long-term returns based on 7% average annual return with monthly compounding

Timeframe

If You Invest Now:
Total Investment

Account Value at End of Period

If You Start in 10 Years:
Total Investment

Account Value at End of Period

Years 0-10 $12,000 $17,409 $0 $0
Years 11-20 $0 $34,987 $12,000 $17,409
Years 21-30 $0 $70,312 $12,000 $52,396
Years 31-40 $0

$141,304

$12,000 $122,707
Years 41-50 $0 $283,973 $12,000 $264,012  
TOTAL $12,000 $283,973 $48,000 $264,012

This is a simplified, hypothetical example and does not consider any unique circumstances such as fees, withdrawals, or varying positive and negative performance potential among years.

A monthly investment of $100 over the next 10 years—a total of $12,000—would grow to $283,973 after 50 years, assuming an average annual return of 7%, net of fees. By contrast, waiting 10 years and then investing $100 a month for the next 40 years—$48,000 in all—would grow to just $264,012. In this example, that would be an extra $19,961 for the investor who started early.

In the real world, investment performance varies from year to year.  Also, in the real world, taxes could factor into the final results. It’s important to remember that investing involves risks, including the possible loss of principal. All of your investment decisions should be made based on your specific financial needs, objectives, goals, time horizon and risk tolerance, which may change over time.

While the example shows the value of investing early, your potential to build wealth is even greater if you start early and continue investing throughout your earning years.

It’s never too late to start investing, but starting sooner may make reaching your financial goals considerably easier – and cheaper.

To quote an old Chinese proverb, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
