BRITISH EQUITABLE ASSURANCE COMPANY,

47 & 48, KING WILLIAM STREET,

LONDON BRIDGE, LONDON, E.C.

Ar the THIRD ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, held on THURSDAY, MARCH 18th, 1858, at the Chief Offices, the following Report was unanimously adopted :

1.-It has hitherto been usual for Life Assurance Companies to make their first division of profit at the end of five, seven, or ten years. The success of the BRITISH EQUITABLE ASSURANCE COMPANY justifies this step at the end of the third year,

2.-3,196 Policy holders have had Policies granted, assuring £507,060. The yearly average of new business has thus amounted to 1,065 new Policies, assuring £169,020.

3.– The Annual Income of the Company from all sources estimated for the year 1858 at £18,000.

4.—The total payments of deaths has been only £2,813 Os. 10d, The sum paid has in some cases rescued families from destitution, and in all affordi d most seasonable relief.

5.—The mortality experienced is only one-third of that provided for by the rates of the Company's premiums, and has been more than covered by the premiums received on Policies which have terminated.

6.-It will be seen by the result of the valuation of the Company's affairs, that after providing for all benefits granted under the Company's Policies, and after reserving an adequate portion of the future premiums to cover future expenses of management, there remains a surplus of £5,191 16s. 11d., of which £5,091 16s. 11d., arising from participating business, belongs to the mutual Policy holders, and £100 arising from the non-participating business belongs to the Shareholders.

7. It is recommended that a reversionary bonus of 15 per cent. per annum be declared on all Policies for the whole of Life dated on or before December 31st, 1855, and on other business entitled to participate in proportion, and the remainder be carried to the next division of profits. Those participating Policies not entitled to participate in this division, and being entitled to participate in the next division of profits, will then take their profits from the date of entry.

8.- Also that the premiums received on the original shares, with interest thereon, and the £100 profit son the non-participating business, be capitalized, and that ls. 4d. per share per annum be paid in addition to the original interest on each original share. This will say the foundation for an increased dividend at future triennial periods.

9.—The growth of the Company's business having necessitated increased accommodation, and the adjoining house having been offered to the Company on eligible terms, it has been judged advisable to extend the Company's Premises by this means, rather than to seek larger Premises elsewhere, and thus

relinquish so commanding a situation. 10.- The Agency of the Company is becoming more and more efficient.

11.—The lives assured have been selected with care, and a high rate of longevity may be expected.

12.—The Mortgage Securities of the Company are upon house property of adequate value, and the deeds have been examined by the Auditors.

13.- The Directors earnestly request the hearty co-operation of all connected with the Company during the next triennial period, convinced that thereby a large accession of business will take place, and the profits of the next division in 1861 will be still more satisfactory.
