This Company was established in 1834, by a Special Act of Parliament, and affords the most perfect security in its large paid-up Capital, held by a large, numerous, and wealthy Proprietary.

The Tables have been formed on the lowest scale compatible with security, and constructed to meet the various wants of Assurers, and every risk to which protection by Assurance can be extended.

Premiums may be paid in almost any way to meet the convenience of the Public.

One-half the Animal Premium need only be paid for the first five years, the other being allowed to remain at five per cent, interest, thus affording parties desirous of effecting SHORT TERM POLICIES the advantage of having a LIFE POLICY at a scarcely increased outlay.

Parties insured with this Company are not restricted in their limits of travel, as in most other Offices, but may proceed from one part of Europe to another, in decked vessels, without licence, and to British North America, and many parts of the States, without extra Premium, by merely giving the ordinary notice of the intended visit.

Whole World Life Policies are granted at slightly increased Rates of Premium, thus rendering a Policy in Honey Transactions a real Security.

SECOND SEPTENNIAL DIVISION OF PROFITS AMONG THE ASSURED.

In 1841 the Company declared a Bonus of £2 per Cent, per Annum on the Sum insured, to all Policies of the Participating Class, from the time they were effected to the 31st December, 1840; and from that date to 31st December, 1847, 2i per Cent, per Annum was added at the General Meeting on Cth July, 1848. The Bonus thus added to Policies from March 1834, to 31st December 1847, is as follows:—

FLEE DEPARTMENT.

Although the lowest rates of premium, consistent with security, have been charged by the office, it has for many years been enabled to make very large returns to septennial insurers.

LIFE DEPARTMENT.

The important advantages offered by the plan and constitution of the Life Department of this Society are—

That insurers are protected by a large invested capital upon which there is no interest to pay, and for which no deduction of any kind is made, which enables the Directors to give the whole of the profits to insuring members.

That the profits are divided annually amongst all members of five years' standing, and applied towards reducing life insurance to the lowest possible rates of premium.

The following table exhibits the abatement of premium that has been made for the past nine years to members of five years' standing:—

[table]

A policy taken out on or before the 24th of June, 1845, at an annual premium of £100, will consequently be charged £47. IN. as this year's premium; and it is expected that an equal abatement will in future be annually made.

That persons insuring their own lives, or the lives of others, may become members.

That persons who are willing to forego participation in the profits can insure at a lower rate than that charged to members.

The following table will show the effect of the reduction of premium made by the Society on members' policies that have been five years in force :—

[table]

This system of reducing the premiums affords immediate benefit to the members, or enables them to insure a further sum upon their lives equal to more than one-third of the present policy, without any additional outlay.

LIFE DEPARTMENT.

THIS CORPORATION has effected Assurances on Lives for A PERIOD OF ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY TEARS; their first policy having been issued on the 7th June, 1721, to William, Lord Bishop of Sarum.

Two-thirds of the entire gross profits are appropriated to the Assured,—the Corporation retaining the remaining one-third, out of which they PAY THE WHOLE EXPENSES OF MANAGEMENT; thus affording to the public advantages equivalent to those derived from Mutual Assurance, WITHOUT LIABILITY OF PARTNERSHIP, and with ALL THE SECURITY afforded by AN OLD AND OPULENT CORPORATION. Policies may be opened under any of the three following plans, viz.:—

The Old Series, under which Assurers arc admitted at very moderate Rates of Premium, without participation in Profits.

The Series 1831, under which Assurers arc entitled, after the first Five Years, to an annual Abatement of Premium. The abatement at the last valuation was equivalent to a return of more than one-fourth of the Premium.

The Series 1846, under which Assurers are entitled to participate in the ascertained profits at the end of every five years, and to appropriate their share thereof, either as an immediate Cash Bonus, as an addition to the sum Assured, or It may be made a matter of special arrangement, and applied in any manner most convenient to the parties Assured. THE FIRST DIVISION under this Scries took place on the 31st DECEMBER, 1850, and amounted, on an average, to A REVERSIONARY BONUS equivalent to about FIFTY-THREE PER CENT, upon the amount of Premiums paid.

SCOTTISH WIDOWS' FUND LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY.

FOUNDED AD 1816.
ON THE PRINCIPLE OF MUTUAL CONTRIBUTION.

THIS Institution, notwithstanding its local name, has long been favourably known to all classes in Great Britain and
Ireland, and a better proof of the confidence reposed in it by the public could not probably be wished, than the fact
that the Average Amount of ASSURANCES effected during the but THIRTEEN YEARS has exceeded
Half A Million Sterling per Annum.

Being a Mutual Assurance Society, the Members are the only parties in any way interested in the Funds; they are, in point of fact, their own assurers, and whatever is paid by way of Premium, over and above what is actually required for the risk of the Assurance, is appropriated for their behoof. This is done once in every period of Seven Years, when an Investigation into the affairs of the Society takes place, not less than one-third of the Profits, as then ascertained, being set aside as a Guarantee Fund to maintain the stability of the Institution, and the remaining two-thirds being immediately divided among the Assured—each member being entitled to elect whether he will have the value of his share handed over to him at once in cash, or have it applied as an addition to his policy, or towards reduction of the future Annual Premiums. As B proof of the working of this system it may be stated, that' in the case of a Policy opened with this Society in the year 1819, and emerging in the present year (after payment of the Premium), the representatives of the Member would receive more than double the amount of the original Assurance.

THE CAPITAL OF THE SOCIETY, arising from the Accumulation of the Members'Premiums, amounts at this time to upwards of TWO MILLIONS AND A QUARTER STERLING.

ANNUAL REVENUE, upwards of Three Hundred Thousand Pounds.

Every information can be readily obtained by application at the Society's Head O^ior, or at any of the Agenda.

Policies do not become void by the Life Assured going beyond the prescribed limits, so far as regards the interest of third parties, provided they pay the additional Premium so soon as the fact comes to their knowledge.

"Free Policies" are issued, at the small increased rate of Premium, which remain in force, although the Life Assured may go to any part of the world.

The Tables are especially favourable to young and middle-aged Lives; and the limits allowed to the Assured, without extra charge, are unusually extensive.

Eighty per cent, of the Profits is divided at the end of every fifth year among the Assured.

At the First Division to the end of 18+1, the addition to the amount assured averaged above 50 per cent, on the Premiums paid. [i 59

Messrs. Watson & Sons, Bouverie-9treet, Fleet-street.

This Company is founded on purely mutual principles: there is no proprietary under any form to absorb any portion of
the profits, which all belong to the Members at large, by whom also the Directors are appointed.
During the year 1850 the following new Policies were executed, in addition to the old business:—

No. Amount. Yearly.

Life Assurances ... 809 .. . £136,365

Annuities 14 £202

Investments .... 410 .. . 27,964

Total . . 1233 £164,329 £202

There were advanced to the Members in the same period, on various descriptions of available security, 7220/.

This Company is adapted to meet all the varied wants of its Members. By its Life Policies provision may be made for the evils anticipated from the death of the party assured. By its Deferred Annuities a certain income may be secured when advancing years render labour less remunerative. By its Immediate Annuities a sum of money which now yields an inadequate support in the shape of interest may be rendered much more productive; while the Investment Assurances enable every one to make provision for the time of sickness or other calamity requiring pecuniary aid. The employment of the funds in advances to the Members places within their reach the means of enlarging their trade capital, or of making advantageous purchases as opportunities offer.

As there are many important towns in which Agents are not yet appointed, the Directors are open to receive applications from respectable persons in such places. If not already Members of the Company, they will be required to become so by effecting a life assurance.

Upon receipt of two postage stamps the Prospectus, with Forms, be., will be forwarded, in which some important and novel applications of Life Assurance will be found. W. S. Cover, Actuary and Secretary.

amount of business was obtained in former years.
The Profits are divided every three years.
Less than One-Third of the Premiums have paid all the Losses.

Assurances can be effected daily at the Chief Offices, or at any of the Agents of the Society throughout the Empire.
