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.

Top money-saving tips for a budget-friendly holiday

By Kate Ashford | 10/24/2023

The holiday season often puts a strain on finances, but with smart strategies you can enjoy it without wreaking havoc on your wallet. According to a recent Bankrate survey,i 33% of holiday shoppers said inflation will change how they shop and 54% of said they expected to feel some level of financial burden at the holidays.

A surprising 87% of those surveyed planned to take frugal steps to help save money when holiday shopping. Here are some valuable holiday shopping tips to help you stay within your budget:

1. Establish a budget: Begin by setting a clear holiday budget, considering all your expenses, such as gifts, decorations, and social events. Sticking to your budget is crucial to preventing overspending.

2. Create a shopping list: Compile a list of individuals you plan to buy gifts and allocate a specific budget for each person. Maintaining this list will help you stay on track and within your spending limits.

3. Shop early: Avoid last-minute holiday shopping by starting early. Keep an eye out for sales and purchase gifts when you find them at the right price.

4. Streamline family gifts: If you have a large family, propose a gift exchange where each person buys for only one other family member. You may also consider concentrating on gifts for children or setting a spending cap.

5. Consider gifting investments: Explore gifts that could help improve finances over time, such as a mutual fund or Coverdell Educational Savings account for younger family members. This could provide a year-long learning opportunity for children to gain an understanding of basic investing concepts.

6. Gift thoughtfully: Being mindful of your budget, you may choose to make personalized or homemade gifts. These gifts often hold more sentimental value than more expensive store-bought items.

7. Opt for a simple gathering: Instead of hosting an elaborate holiday dinner, arrange a gathering with appetizers and a signature drink. This could save money and also ease the stress of cooking for a crowd.

8. Leverage online savings: Hunt for online coupons, promo codes and special offers when shopping, many websites offer discounts and cashback opportunities.

9. Avoid impulse purchases: Stay away from unnecessary items displayed in a store’s “extras” section near the checkout. Stick with your planned purchases.

10. Begin saving early: Consider saving for the next holiday season right after this one. Even modest, regular savings contributions accumulate over time and can provide a nest egg for the following holiday.

11. Resist self-indulgence: Refrain from buying gifts for yourself alongside gifts for others to maintain your budget. Also, you may consider reducing attendance at expensive holiday events to help save budget for gifting to others.

By following these tips, you can make the most of the season and stay within a budget that works for you and your family. With thoughtful planning and a bit of financial discipline, you will be able to focus less on financial worries and more on a joyful holiday season.
