MINNEAPOLIS, March 10, 2022 –Thrivent, a Fortune 500 diversified financial services organization, has been honored today as a Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards US 2022 Winner for its Mid Cap Stock Fund – Class S (TMSIX). The fund was named best Mid-Cap Core Fund over the five- and ten-year performance periods. Thrivent Asset Management, LLC is the investment adviser to the fund.

Thrivent Mid Cap Stock Fund was recognized for its consistently strong risk-adjusted performance in the five- and ten-year performance periods which ended Nov. 30, 2021. Refinitiv evaluated the Fund against 234 funds in the five-year performance period and 150 funds in the ten-year performance period in the US Mid-Cap Core Funds category.

“Thrivent Mid Cap Stock Fund has a history of strong performance and we’re proud to again be honored by Refinitiv Lipper,” said David Royal, executive vice president and chief investment officer at Thrivent. “Our talented investment professionals follow a disciplined investment process in order to deliver investment solutions that help our clients achieve financial clarity and live purposeful and meaningful lives. This award is a wonderful recognition of our commitment to excellence.”

According to Robert Jenkins, Head of Research, Lipper, Refinitiv, “The 2022 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards recognize award winning managers who are successfully facing down market factors not seen in decades including rising inflation, a thinning labor pool and continuing constraints on the global supply chain. Markets are ebbing and flowing along with the sentiments and emotions of investors as the pandemic continues to cloud outlooks and change perspectives. Fund managers find themselves looking beyond earnings statements and factoring in impacts of viral waves – making active management more challenging than ever. We applaud the 2022 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award winners such as Thrivent for delivering outperformance and the accompanying comfort of consistency to investors’ portfolios in a time of unprecedented change.”

“It takes an incredible team of investment professionals to create performance that leads to distinguished awards like Refinitiv Lipper,” said Brian Flanagan, portfolio manager of Thrivent Mid Cap Stock Fund. “Our investment process at Thrivent is grounded in bottom-up stock selection, research, portfolio construction and risk management, and I’m grateful to work with talented colleagues who bring their best ideas and recommendations to the table.”
