Other Income

Some of the mutual funds and annuity companies that we recommend to clients make payments to broker-dealers. Such payments may be distributed pursuant to a distribution plan adopted under Rule 12b-1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or pursuant to another arrangement such as marketing support.

Because of these compensation arrangements, a conflict of interest may exist regarding the recommendation of particular investments for client accounts.

However, Thurston Springer intends to fully comply with those standards of fiduciary duty that require it act solely in the clients’ best interests when making investment recommendations.
