LIFE ASSURANCE.
A MONG the advantages offered by this Corporation are-
1. The Guarantee of an extensive and highly respectable body of Shareholders.
2. An Equitable Division of the Whole Profits among the Assured in the Participation Scheme.
3. The probability afforded by a successful business of a periodically increasing Bonus. And,
4. Policies Indisputable, except on the ground of fraud.
Thus combining the leading features of a Mutual with the stability of a Proprietary Company.
The Annual Revenue of the Company is now nearly £200,000, and the Invested Funds are
£350,000.
DIVISION OF PROFITS.
The Company having this year (1857) completed the fourth quinquennial period of its existence,
the Directors, after a careful investigation into the Life Department, resolved to recommend from the
profits of the past five years, a Bonus, present and prospective, to the Policy-holders of the Participat-
ing Class, of £1, 7s. 6d. per cent, per annum, on all Policies current at the 31st of January last ; and
although, from the Report of the Committee of Investigation, it appeared that a considerably higher
Bonus might have been declared, the Meeting resolved to adopt the recommendation of the Directors,
and to carry forward the surplus for appropriation at the next declaration of Profits, to take place in
1861.
