THE Business of this Company consists in effecting Insurances on Lives and Survivor-
ships ; Purchasing and Selling immediate and deferred Annuities, Liferent, Rever-
sionary, Contingent, and Postponed, Rights and Interests ; granting Endowments to Chil-
dren ; making Provisions to Widows ; granting Loans of Money ; the Administration,
Application, and Management of Trust- Funds, and every other description of Business
carried on by any Proprietary Assurance, Reversion, or Trust- Company in Great Britain.
The Company combines the benefits of the Proprietary with those of the Mutual Assur-
ance principle. The Directors have had no common advantages in the construction of the
Company's Tables, and in the organization of the whole system on which its business is to be
conducted ; and the Rates, particularly for persons between the ages of 25 and 50, will be
found very favourable for the Assured.
The Company will grant Assurance Policies either for the whole term of Life, or for
shorter periods ; and either in consideration of a single payment at first, or of Premiums
payable annually, half-yearly, or quarterly, as may suit the convenience of the Insured.
This Company have likewise had Tables of Rates calculated, agreeably to which they will
grant Policies payable upon the Insured attaining the age of 60 years, or on occasion of death
previously. The Premium would thus be exigible only during a period of life fitted for
active exertion, and the Insured would receive the amount of his Policy when he might wish
to retire from business, with a Fund at his command, sufficient for his maintenance or comfort.
