Scottish Widows Fund and Life Annuities — Continued.
The great value of the principle of mutual contributionship, or, as it is generally termed,
MUTUAL ASSURANCE, on which this Society is founded, is now well known. By the operation
of this principle, taken in connexion with the careful selection of lives, and an economical
management of the Society's business, it is evident that the advantages of Life Assurance are
secured to their utmost possible extent. Indeed, they only require to be known and under-
stood to be fully appreciated ; and so rapid, accordingly, has been the growth of this Society,
that, during the last twenty years, the annual revenue has increased from L.2300, to nearly
One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Pounds Sterling per annum, and the accumulated
Fund from L.3000 to nearly Eight Hundred and Thirty Thousand Pounds Stehling,
and both are in a state of steady and rapid increase.
The last periodical investigation of the Society's aflFairs took place at 31st December, 1838,
when large additions were declared to the Assurances entitled thereto. In order to show the
value of the additions made out of the Surplus Fund, the following particulars are given of the
claim arising under a Policy opened previous to 1820, if emerging in the current year by the
death of the party assured : —
Sum originally assured, .... L.IOOO
Vested Additions up to 31st December 1831, . 392 6
Do. do. 1838, . 194 18 6
Total sum payable, L. 1 587 4 6
The Ordinary Court of Directors meet weekly for the purpose of receiving andMeciding
on applications for Assurance, which are now granted to the extent of L.5000, on approved
single or joint lives.
Tables of Rates of Premium, and every necessary information, will be readily communi-
cated on application at the Society's Office.
