Fund Overview

Thrivent Municipal Bond Fund seeks a high level of current income exempt from federal income taxes, consistent with capital preservation.

This fund invests in a nationally-diversified portfolio of high-quality municipal bonds. A municipal bond is a debt security issued by a city, county or state government to finance its capital expenditures. These bonds often finance public projects such as schools, roads, bridges, sewers or hospitals. Municipal bonds are exempt from federal income taxes. The Fund generally holds investment-grade bonds and unrated bonds that the Fund’s investment advisor determines to be of comparable quality. The Fund may invest in lower quality bonds that may have a higher yield but more credit risk and longer duration than investment grade bonds. It invests in both general obligation bonds that are backed by the taxing authority of the issuer, and revenue bonds that are repaid from the revenues generated by the project. Municipal bonds typically have a longer duration and more interest-rate risk than other corporate bonds.

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 securities to buy and sell. Through rigorous credit research, the analysts seek to identify high-quality municipal bonds that are issued by financially-sound entities with strong fundamentals and adequate cash flows to meet their principal and interest obligations. The team may also invest in Treasury futures contracts to manage interest rate risk. The portfolio manager is responsible for portfolio construction and risk management and seeks to invest with a very prudent level of risk. The Fund’s holdings are well-diversified both geographically and across sectors.

Municipal bonds may be affected by political or economic conditions at the state, regional or federal level. Debt securities are subject to risks such as declining prices during periods of rising interest rates and credit risk, or the risk that an issuer not pay its debt. High yield securities are subject to increased credit risk as well as liquidity risk. Changes in federal income tax laws or rates may affect both the net asset value of the Fund and the taxable equivalent interest generated from securities in the fund. Some issues may be subject to state and local taxes and/or the federal and state alternative minimum tax (AMT). Consult a tax advisor for more information about your specific situation, including state/local tax treatment. The use of futures contracts involves additional risks such as a loss in value in the underlying instrument, which could decrease the Fund’s value. When bond inventories are low in relation to the market size, there is the potential for decreased liquidity and increased price volatility. The Adviser's assessment of investments may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or poor performance. These and other risks are described in the prospectus

Who Should Consider Investing?

The Fund may be suitable for investors who:

  • Seek income that is generally exempt from federal income taxes.  The Fund may invest in municipal securities that are subject to state and local taxes and/or the alternative minimum tax (AMT). While the dividends earned on a municipal bond fund are usually federally tax-exempt, any capital gains distributions, as well as realized capital gains from selling fund shares, may be taxable.
  • Have a medium- to long-term investment time horizon and a moderately conservative risk tolerance.
  • Are willing to accept lower long-term returns in order to have a low to moderate level of risk and volatility.

Our seasoned team of more than 110 investment professionals brings their deep expertise to managing each fund so you can feel confident in the choices you’re making. More than 80% have at least 10 years of experience, over 50% have more than 20 years of investment experience, and over 83% have earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, an advanced degree, or both.
