Programs we offer
Investing is a journey that starts with a holistic, customized strategy – something our financial representatives specialize in. They'll help you choose from a range of investment options – including mutual funds and managed accounts – to build a diversified portfolio specific to your unique goals and preferences.
Thrivent Mutual Funds spread your risk across various investments, and are managed by investment professionals. In addition to diversification and professional money management, mutual funds offer liquidity, which means you can access your assets at any time.
Retail brokerage accounts
Thrivent retail brokerage accounts let you expand your portfolio by investing directly in individual stocks, bonds or a wider range of mutual funds. Certain Thrivent Representatives may limit their offerings to mutual funds within the retail brokerage account. In any case, you have access to hundreds of investments; you make all investment decisions. You pay a commission or sales charge on each transaction.
Managed Account Programs
Our Managed Account programs provide ongoing investment advice – along with personalized service – to help keep you on track with your investment goals. These programs vary, allowing you to choose how involved you want to be with investment decisions. The annual fee is determined based on a percentage of your assets and aligned to the level of service that is right for you.
