Get on track to financial fitness with actively managed investments from Thrivent Mutual Funds.

Exercising, eating right, and unwinding are all ways you invest in a happy, healthy lifestyle, but what about your financial future? Building and managing your investment portfolio is easier than you think—even if the words “mutual funds” sounds more intimidating than a flying pigeon pose. Get serious about making your money work for you with flexible investment options from Thrivent Mutual Funds.

Take Small But Smart Steps

Working out effectively isn’t just about committing a ton of time or money. It’s about training smarter and building up. Even a 15-minute circuit can torch calories and tone muscles if done right. Growing your money also begins with small steps. With Thrivent Mutual Funds, you can start investing for as little as $50 a month*(which is probably less than you spend on a mani-pedi).

Have a Strong Team Behind You

When you start feeling uninspired at the gym, joining a class, finding a workout buddy, or getting a trainer can help you get motivated and back on track. Fortunately, with investing, you also don’t have to go it alone. Thrivent Mutual Funds puts investment information and tools at your fingertips, whether you’re just getting started or need to add assets to your existing portfolio.

Move and Stay Active

You’ve probably heard that the more times you do the same workout, the easier it becomes. The same is true for investing. Setting up an automatic deposit can be an active and easy way to invest. While you may see a difference in your budget at first, after a few months you likely won’t even notice.

Find Support in Numbers

Asking yourself if you can run another mile or lift another pound is one way to stay motivated. Investing comes with similar checkups. For example, if you have a portfolio of 60 percent equities and 40 percent fixed income and do nothing, a shift in the market could change that allocation by one doing better than the other. Which is why it is important to review your portfolio and rebalance on a regular basis. This will help you stay on track with your long-term goals.

Cut Out the Slack

You train your muscles because feeling strong and being fit makes you feel more focused and balanced all around. Investing in no-load funds** (which means no upfront fees for sales commissions) through Thrivent Mutual Funds puts more of your money to work toward your financial goals. And, the same way you read labels to avoid fillers and excess sugar, no-load funds can cut down on fees associated with mutual funds.
