ASSURANCE COMPANY.

THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING was held on

THURSDAY, MARCH 17th, 1859, at the CHIEF OFFICES, 47 and 48 KING WILLIAM-STREET, LONDON, E.C. ; WILLIAM GOVER, Esq., the Chairman of the Company, presiding.

The MANAGER read the following report :-
a The year 1858 has shown a considerable increase of the Company's business.

Eight hundred and two Folicies have been issued, assuring £137,227, and the revenue of New Annual Premiums thereon amounts to £4,805 1s. 1d. The whole of these have been fully paid upon, Half-Credit Policies not being issued by the Company. This increases the grand total of Life Assurance Policies issued by the Companyto the 31st December last to 3,998, representing Assurances effected with the Companyto the amount of £644,287 153. 8d.

"The total of Proposals received by the Company from its foundation has been 6422, for Assurances to the amount of £1,100,837 4s. 9d.

“From these statements will be seen the caution with which lives have been accepted by the Company. The best available Medical skill has been employed, and the bona fides of the Proposers scrutinized, a course rendered necessary by the frequent and notorious frauds recently perpetrated on Life Offices. This scrutiny has been still more rigid where female lives have been proposed for Assurance.

" It is a satisfaction that, in round numbers, 4,000 persons have made a provision for their families in this single Office.

"The amount of business done in the year is not the total good accomplished; for it is probable that the diffusion of knowledge on this subject by the Agents of this Company have induced three times that number of heads of families to make provision in some shape for the future, who had hitherto neglected that duty; and, in future years, additional fruits will be reaped by the Company from the labours of 1858.

"The Death Register shows that the sum of £1,902 138. 8d. has been paid in death claims and bonuses to the families of nineteen deceased Policy-holders. This mortality is much below the tabular estimate. All these Policies, of two years old and upwards, received a considerable proportional addition to the sums assured, in the shape of bonuses-the profits being divided every three years, and Policies of two years' duration being entitled; so that the benefits of the improved Mutual System on which the Office is based, will every year be more widely diffused.

** The Company has received from the Policy-bolders the warmest approbation of its principles, and the most cordial support in a variety of ways.

* Policy-holders have also received valuable assistance in the shape of Loans upon various securities, including their Policies. Some of these Policies must have been forfeited but for this timely aid,

* Loans continue to be advanced to Policy.holders wishing to purchase the houses they reside in, the repayments, which include Principal, Interest, and the Legal Expenses, not greatly exceeding the Quarterly Rent. This Investment, judiciously and cautiously made, is, perhaps, one of the best open to the public.

“The spread of Life Assurance is one of the most hopeful signs of the times. Its effects cannot fail of being felt in the check of pauperism, the diminution of crime, and the spread of sobriety, industry, thoughtfulness, and morality-promoting the stability of the nation and happiness of the people."

Borrowers are invited to examine personally the improved loan system of the British Equitable Investment Company, 47 and 48 King William-street, London-bridge.

Investors are invited to inspect personally the improved Building Society Share system of this Company.

Depositors are invited to examine personally the improved Deposit system of this Company.
