Thrivent recognized for best-in-class mutual fund shareholder service



Thrivent strives to deliver best-in-class service to our clients, which is why we’re thrilled to announce our recent recognition as a winner of the DALBAR 2020 Mutual Fund Service Award. Thrivent was one of seven firms awarded for delivering quality telephone service to mutual fund shareholders.

“It is a privilege for us to help shareholders with their investments as they work toward their financial goals,” said Michael Kremenak, senior vice president and head of Thrivent Mutual Funds. “This recognition validates that during a year unlike any other, we were still able to deliver award-winning service for our shareholders when they called Thrivent’s service center with questions or to ask for help with their investment accounts.”

“I couldn’t be prouder of this team,” added Kathy Stelter, Vice President and Mutual Funds Chief Operations Officer. “Our exceptional team consistently provides best-in-class service to our clients. This recognition from DALBAR underscores our commitment to serving our clients with the highest standards, even in the midst of a tumultuous year like 2020.”

Dialing up shareholder service

The DALBAR Mutual Fund Service Award is determined through an objective and rigorous third-party audit of the quality of contact center interactions with mutual fund shareholders. Telephone service experiences are reviewed against detailed criteria based on superior service standards and industry best practices.

To qualify, companies must perform at a high level in all aspects of the customer experience. This multi-faceted approach takes into account everything from the interpersonal relationship to the handling of the transactional elements of the call – and everything in between. Shareholders at these firms can expect an exceptional and well-rounded experience whenever they pick up the phone.

A challenging year for our shareholders

“2020 has been a uniquely challenging year for contact centers,” said Brendan Yeager, DALBAR Director. “It has also been a difficult year for shareholders, who are facing pandemic-induced stresses, volatile markets and, in many cases, financial hardship. We recognize that having a friendly, competent and efficient representative available to help shareholders when they need to call their mutual fund providers is more important now than ever.”

“For this reason, companies were held to the same exacting standards to earn our Service Awards in 2020 that they would have been in any other year,” Yeager added. “That these firms were able to deliver a superior standard of care in spite of the pandemic and accompanying disruptions really speaks to their strong culture and the priority that they place on their customers. It is a remarkable accomplishment.”
