Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Investing in a mutual fund involves risks, including the possible loss of principal. The prospectus and summary prospectus contain more complete information on the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the fund, and other information, which investors should read and consider carefully before investing. Prospectuses are available at ThriventFunds.com or by calling 800-847-4836.
Mixed-Asset Class Award Methodology: Asset Class Awards are given to the best large and best small fund families separately. Small fund family groups need to have at least 3 distinct portfolios in the mixed-asset class group to qualify for the award. For the 2019 Lipper Fund Awards From Refinitv (based on three-year period ending 11/30/2018), a small fund family is defined as having assets of $76.8 billion or less, excluding Money Market assets. The Mixed-Asset Class Award is given to the fund family with the lowest average decile rank of the three years' Consistent Return (Effective Return) measure of the eligible funds in the asset class. In cases of identical results, the lower average percentile rank will determine the winner.
Fund award methodology: The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value within each eligible classification determines the fund classification winner over three, five, or 10 years.
All Awards: Sales charges are not taken into consideration for Lipper Awards. Class S shares of Thrivent Mutual Funds have no sales charges. Some Thrivent Mutual Funds may have had fee waivers in effect and if they hadn’t been in effect performance would have been lower. See the Prospectus for current waiver information.
