Thrivent Income Fund seeks high current income while preserving principal. The Fund's secondary investment objective is to obtain long-term growth of capital in order to maintain investors' purchasing power.

This fund invests primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds, government bonds, asset-backed securities, and mortgage-backed securities. The Fund may also invest a portion of its assets in high yield bonds, leveraged loans and preferred stock, and may opportunistically invest in foreign issuers (including emerging market issuers), non-agency mortgage-backed securities and commercial mortgage-backed securities. The Fund typically has its largest allocation in BBB-rated bonds, which are the lowest-tier of investment grade bonds. The Fund uses derivatives in order to manage the Fund’s duration, or interest rate risk.

Strategy

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. The Fund’s investment advisor may purchase bonds of any maturity and generally focuses on U.S. companies that it believes are financially sound and have strong cash flows and earnings. The team also considers the macro-economic environment and performs an ongoing assessment of relative value and risk. Based on this market outlook, the Fund may take overweight and underweight positions in various sectors and industries and may reallocate across the higher and lower-quality segments of the bond market. The analysts perform research and provide buy/sell recommendations while the portfolio manager is responsible for portfolio construction and risk management.

Risk

The Fund’s value is influenced by a number of factors, including the performance of the broader market, and risks specific to the Fund’s asset classes, investment styles, and issuers. 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. The value of U.S. government securities may be affected by changes in the credit rating of the U.S. government and may not be fully guaranteed by the U.S. government. 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. The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is being phased out, which brings uncertainty to instruments tied to it.  Foreign investments involve additional risks, such as currency fluctuations and political, economic and market instability, which may be magnified for investments in emerging markets. Markets may also be impacted by domestic or global events, including public health threats, terrorism, natural disasters or similar events. The Adviser's assessment of investments may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or poor performance. To the extent that the financials sector continues to represent a significant portion of the fund, the Fund will be sensitive to changes in, and its performance may depend to a greater extent on, factors impacting this sector. The use of derivatives such as futures involves additional risks and transaction costs. When bond inventories are low in relation to the market size, there is the potential for decreased liquidity and increased price volatility. The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of portfolio securities, which may result in higher transaction costs and higher taxes. These and other risks are described in the prospectus.

The Fund may be suitable for investors who:

  • Seek a high level of income while preserving principal
  • 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
