THIS SOCIETY differs in its principles from other Offices.
Instead of charging rates higher than are necessary, and afterwai
returning the excess in the shape of periodical Bonuses, it gives from t
first as large an assurance as the Premiums will with safety bear
reserving the Whole Surplus for those members who have lived lo
enough to secure the Common Fund from loss.
A Policy for £1200 to £1250 may thus at most ages be had for the Premium usually char] for (with profits) £1000 only; while, by reserving the surplus, large additions hare b given—and may be expected in the future—on the Policies of those who participate.
The New Assurances effected in 1880 were 1769 for £1,054,566; Prerain received, £399,538; Total Receipts, £566,444. The Funds (increased in year £283,922) were at its close £3,913,252. They now exceed Four Millions.
It is a striking fact that, while the Society is 46th among the Offices in po of age, only four Offices now exceed it in amount of Funds.
The Cost of management was 9.4 per cent on Premiums, and 6.5 on Income. The ratio c expenditure has steadily fallen, as the income increased, in each year of the Septenniuro.
THE FIFTH SEPTENNIAL INVESTIGATION
showed a SURPLUS of £624,473, of which a third (£208,158) was reserved after division, £410,323 divided among 6662 Policies entitled to participate. Policies of £1000 sharing a 1 time are increased to sums varying from £1180 to £1300 or more. Other Policies have I raised to £1400, £1500, and upwards. A few of the early Policies have been doubled.
Reports with Statement of Principles may be had on application.
