Fund Overview

Thrivent Limited Maturity Bond Fund seeks a high level of current income consistent with stability of principal.

This fund invests primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds, government bonds, asset-backed securities, mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations. The fund may also invest a portion of assets in leveraged loans and foreign securities. The dollar-weighted average effective maturity for the fund is expected to be between one and five years. The Fund’s shorter duration makes it less sensitive to interest rate changes than some longer-duration funds. As a result, the fund may be appropriate for an investor who is seeking the opportunity to generate a modest level of income (with some investment risk), but with less interest rate risk and a lower return potential than most longer-maturity bond funds.

The portfolio management team seeks to add value through security selection and active management, and monitors risk in an effort to build a well-diversified portfolio. The team uses fundamental, quantitative and technical investment research techniques to determine which debt securities to buy and sell. The fund’s investment advisor generally focuses on issuers that it believes are financially sound and that have strong cash flows and earnings. The fund may use an interest-rate management technique that includes the purchase and sale of U.S. Treasury securities and related futures contracts for the purpose of managing the duration of the fund.

The Fund primarily invests in investment-grade debt securities. The value of the Fund is influenced by factors impacting the overall market, debt securities in particular, and specific issuers. The Fund may incur losses due to incorrect assessments of investments by its investment advisor. Bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer of a debt security may not pay its debt. The value of mortgage-related and other asset-backed securities will be influenced by the factors affecting the housing market and the assets underlying such securities. Foreign investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuations, liquidity, political, economic and market instability, and different legal and accounting standards. The prices of futures contracts can be highly volatile and the loss from investing in them can exceed the initial investment. Collateralized debt obligations are subject to additional risks. Dealer inventories of bonds are at or near historic lows in relation to market size, which has the potential to decrease liquidity and increase price volatility in the fixed income markets.

Class A accounts are serviced via Thrivent.com
