The Thrivent Managed Accounts Program offers financial professionals a simple and effective way to build their practices while offering their clients a high level of professional portfolio management. The Thrivent Managed Account program is offered by Thrivent Asset Management which serves as the investment adviser for the Thrivent Mutual Funds.
Also known as model portfolios, managed accounts are actively-managed portfolios of mutual funds that can be geared to the specific risk and return objectives of your clients.
As a financial professional, you can help your clients determine which model works best for their unique situations. Once that decision is made, you simply allocate their assets to the appropriate managed account and let the Thrivent investment team handle the day-to-day decisions in the portfolios.
The managed accounts solution offers several key advantages:
Thrivent offers a variety of model portfolios to meet the varied time horizons, risk tolerances, and income needs and goals of most investors. The portfolios are designed with a complete investor life cycle in mind from growth of assets to retirement income.
The Thrivent Managed Accounts Program features seven options, including five “Select” models that focus on accumulation and two income-focused models. (See chart below.)
You and your clients can expect advice, due diligence and timely information through the managed accounts program to assist you in communicating with your clients.
Thrivent Asset Management produces monthly performance reports and quarterly commentaries. These commentaries provide economic and market overviews, comments regarding the performance of the portfolios and the latest holdings and changes. You will also be notified each time a tactical trade is made, with commentary on the rationale for that decision.i
The broad and experienced team of Thrivent investment professionals oversees the managed accounts investment process. Key features of the program include:
Thrivent Asset Management launched its first mutual fund in 1970 and its asset allocation funds in 2005. The Select model portfolios, created in 2007, have a long track record of performance, and the Income-Focused model portfolios have been around since 2012.
The Thrivent managed accounts program is backed by the full power of a Fortune 500 company with more than $150 billion in assets under management. The investment team is comprised of about 115 seasoned investment professionals, of which more than 80% have a graduate degree, a CFA® designation, or both. More than 80% of Thrivent investment professionals also have at least 10 years of investment industry experience and more than 50% have at least 20 years.
