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.

Benefits of a traditional IRA

Key points

Tax savings

Traditional IRAs provide valuable tax savings benefits.

Retirement savings

Use a traditional IRA to help grow your retirement savings.

A traditional IRA could help you reduce your current year’s taxes while building retirement savings for the future.

A traditional individual retirement account (IRA) is a retirement savings account that allows you to potentially reduce your taxes in the current tax year while building your retirement savings tax-deferred. If you’re not currently funding an IRA, you may be short-changing yourself both now and in the future.

Tax savings add up with traditional IRAs

When you contribute to a traditional IRA, every qualified IRA investment dollar you add to your account may reduce your taxable income by the same amount. If you contribute the maximum amount each year, which is $6,500 for an individual under 50 and $7,500 for people 50 and over in 2023 and $7,000 for under 50 and $8,000 for 50 and over in 2024, you may be able to reduce your taxable income by that same amount.

For example, if you’re in the 25% tax bracket, a $7,000 contribution could save you about $1,750 a year in taxes. If you’re in the 10% bracket, it could save you about $700.

Note that your tax deduction may be limited due to your income and other factors such as your or your spouse’s ability to participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan such as a 401(k). See details on deductions and contribution limits.

Build retirement savings with a traditional IRA

By contributing to your IRA each year, you may accumulate a substantial nest egg by the time you retire. For example, let’s say you contribute $6,000 a year to an IRA and invest the money in a mutual fund that earns an average annual return of 7%.

Based on 7% annual growth, with a $6,000 annual contribution (at $500 per month), here’s how much an IRA would grow over the next four decades:

After 10 years, the IRA would have grown to $86,542, after 20 years it would have grown to $260,463, after 30 years it would have grown to $609,986, and after 40 years it would have grown to over $1 million at $1,312,407.

Contributing as much as possible to your IRA may require some small sacrifices in the short-term, but it’s well worth the effort if you may be able to reduce your current year’s taxes while building a tax-deferred retirement nest egg for the long term.


A traditional IRA account with Thrivent Mutual Funds can help you invest for the future.
