Thrivent Low Volatility Equity Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation with lower volatility relative to the global equity markets.

This fund seeks to provide investors with returns similar to the global equity markets with lower volatility over a full market cycle. The Fund is globally diversified with an approximate allocation range of 50-75% U.S. and 25-50% non-U.S. stocks and may invest in securities of any market capitalization. The Fund employs investment management techniques to identify securities that exhibit low volatility returns. Therefore, it is expected that the Fund will generally underperform the global equity markets during periods of strong market performance.

The Fund may be suitable for investors who:

  • Seek long-term growth with less volatility
  • Have a long-term investment time horizon and a moderate risk tolerance
  • Are comfortable with experiencing underperformance during certain parts of the market cycle in exchange for potentially lower volatility over a full market cycle

Strategy

The portfolio management team uses active quantitative management techniques to forecast investment returns and to identify relationships between securities. The process uses factor models and also strives to identify groups of stocks that are less correlated to each other. The team constructs a risk-optimized portfolio with a focus on low-volatility securities. The portfolio is expected to be well-diversified with global securities. As a part of the risk management process, sector, country, and individual security weights will be constrained.

Risk

The Fund may experience volatility due to investments in equity securities. The Fund’s value is influenced by a number of factors, including the performance of the broader market, and risks specific to the Fund’s asset classes, investment styles, and issuers. Markets may also be impacted by domestic or global events, including public health threats, terrorism, natural disasters or similar events. The use of quantitative investing techniques and derivatives such as futures also involve risks. Foreign investments involve additional risks, such as currency fluctuations and political, economic and market instability, which may be magnified for investments in emerging markets. The Adviser's assessment of investments and ESG considerations may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or poor performance. These and other risks are described in the prospectus.
