Fund Overview

Thrivent Partner Emerging Markets Equity Fund seeks long-term capital growth.

The Thrivent Partner Emerging Markets Equity Fund is managed by Aberdeen Asset Managers Limited and invests primarily in companies of countries that are considered to have an “emerging” or “developing” stock market. According to the United Nations, more than fifty percent of the world’s population resides in emerging market countries, such as Brazil, Russia, India and China. Emerging market countries often have younger, growing populations, an expanding middle class, developing infrastructure and improving monetary and fiscal policies. These factors help contribute to faster growth rates compared to their developed country counterparts, but with more volatility.

The Fund invests primarily in the equity securities of companies based in emerging stock markets. It uses a disciplined investment process which uses proprietary research to seek to identify quality companies (based on factors such as strength of management and business), that trade at reasonable valuations based on factors such as earnings growth and other key financial measurements.

The Fund primarily invests in emerging markets equities. Foreign investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuations, liquidity, political, economic and market instability, and different legal and accounting standards; these risks are magnified for investments in emerging markets. The value of the Fund is influenced by factors impacting the overall market, certain asset classes, certain investment styles, and specific issuers. The Fund may incur losses due to incorrect assessments of investments by its investment advisors. Small and medium-sized companies often have greater price volatility and less liquidity than larger companies. Large cap companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges a may not be able to attain a high growth rate.

Class A accounts are serviced via Thrivent.com

Who Should Consider Investing?

The Fund may be suitable for investors who:

  • Seek the diversification and high potential growth that emerging market countries may offer.
  • Have a long-term investment time horizon and an aggressive risk tolerance.
  • Are able to withstand the high level of risk and volatility associated with emerging market investing, in pursuit of potentially high long-term returns.

The Fund is managed by Thrivent Asset Management, LLC, which has engaged Aberdeen Asset Managers Limited to subadvise the Fund.
