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. 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

Inspiring generosity with your Thrivent Funds

06/01/2021

06/01/2021

Giving back is an important value of Thrivent, as well as many of you. You can give back to causes you care about from your Thrivent Funds account in three ways:

1.     Donate shares of your Thrivent Funds to a charity of your choice.

You can gift a portion or all of your non-retirement account shares to a charity of your choice through a transfer of ownership (see the next section for retirement accounts). Not only will this help support a cause you care about, it may also provide you with potential tax benefits. That’s because you may be able to include the value of the shares you donate as a charitable deduction.*

To donate this way, you would need to complete the Change of Registration form (MF23432) with all account owners’ signatures. For interval funds, you’ll also need to include the Repurchase Offer Request form (MF29974).  If the charity you select does not have a Thrivent account, the charity will also need to complete a Business Entity Information form (MF23438) and the Transfer of Ownership Suitability form (26872). The charity may complete these forms on its own or, if you have a Thrivent financial professional, you may connect them with your financial professional.

2.     Direct your Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) on retirement accounts to a charity of your choice.

In retirement, when you need to make required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your retirement account, you may choose to donate these distributions directly to charity. An RMD is the minimum amount of money you must withdraw each year from a tax-deferred retirement plan after you reach age 72 (or 70.5 if you were born before July 1, 1949). But anyone age 70.5 or over can elect a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), although the QCD will count towards an RMD. Generally, you would be required to pay ordinary income taxes on those withdrawals. However, you may distribute up to $100,000 per year (even if that is more than your RMD) from an IRA directly to a charity and, by doing so, the amount does not need to be recognized as income for federal tax purposes.

To donate an RMD, you would need to complete the Qualified Charitable Distribution Request form (MF29998) for mutual funds. For interval funds, you would need to also include the Repurchase Offer Request form (MF29974).

3.     Donate fund shares as part of your estate plan.

As you think about your legacy and prepare an estate plan, it is possible to assign a charity as a beneficiary on your fund shares and potentially reduce taxes on your estate.*  This will direct your assets to a cause you care about upon your death and allow you to make a lasting impact. To assign a charity as the beneficiary, you would need to complete a Beneficiary Designation Request form (MF307).

With any of these options, you can use your gift to establish a donor-advised fund through Thrivent Charitable, which is a public charity. A donor-advised fund through Thrivent Charitable provides an efficient and strategic option for your charitable giving and may have tax benefits. Visit thriventcharitable.com for more details.

Inflation, the Fed, and falling stocks marked 2022

2022 was the year of inflation and the Federal Reserve (Fed). The combination of the two – rising prices and a tightening monetary policy – contributed to a slowing economy, rapidly rising interest rates, and significant losses in the stock market. The war in Ukraine also contributed to global economic adversity, particularly in Europe.
