Thrivent Opportunity Income Plus Fund seeks a high level of current income, consistent with capital preservation.

This fund generates income by investing predominantly in a diversified mix of high-income fixed income securities. It invests primarily in higher-yielding, higher-risk, fixed income securities to generate income, while the equity holdings are generally opportunistic investments. Investments are diversified across sectors in order to manage risk and potentially provide more stability when interest rates rise. The Fund is actively managed and invests in a combination of other funds managed by the Adviser and direct investments in equity and debt instruments.

The Fund may be suitable for investors who:

  • Seek a high level of income and are able to withstand the volatility of high yielding bonds in pursuit of high current income
  • Have a medium to long-term time horizon and a moderately conservative risk tolerance

Strategy

The Fund primarily invests in a broad range of debt securities. The portfolio management team actively manages the Fund with overweight and underweight positions in the various sectors based on their views of the market and economy. Fixed income securities and equity holdings are analyzed and selected on an ongoing basis. The Fund is regularly rebalanced to ensure that the holdings are within appropriate ranges. Prior to August 16, 2013, the Fund was named Thrivent Core Bond Fund. It invested primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds, government bonds, asset-backed securities, and mortgage-backed securities. On August 16, 2013, the Fund adopted its current name and investment strategy, which includes the ability to invest in a diversified mix of higher-yielding fixed-income securities.

Risk

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 may not pay its debt. Leveraged loans, sovereign debt, mortgage-related and other asset-backed securities are subject to additional risks. The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is being phased out, which brings uncertainty to instruments tied to it. When interest rates fall, certain obligations will be paid off more quickly and proceeds may have to be invested in lower-yielding securities with lower yields. High yield securities are subject to increased credit risk as well as liquidity risk. The Fund’s value is influenced by a number of factors, including the performance of the broader market, the effectiveness of the Adviser’s allocation strategy, and risks specific to the Fund’s asset classes, investment styles, and issuers. 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 Fund invests in a combination of other funds managed by the Adviser and in direct investments in equity and debt instruments therefore the Fund is dependent upon the performance of the other funds and is subject to the risks, additional fees and expenses of the other funds. The Adviser's assessment of investments and ESG considerations may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or poor performance. The Adviser is also subject to actual or potential conflicts of interest. When bond inventories are low in relation to the market size, there is the potential for decreased liquidity and increased price volatility. The use of derivatives such as futures involves additional risks. The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of securities, which may result in higher transaction costs and taxes. In unusual circumstances, the Fund could experience a loss when selling portfolio securities to meet redemption requests for a variety of reasons. These and other risks are described in the prospectus.
