REMEMBER - SMALL PROFITS ENSURE READY GAIN
Scottish Widows' Fund Life Assurance Society Established
Assurance Fund ................................£ 7,000,000
Annual Income ..........................................900,000
The Financial Position of the Society is Unrivalled, though not the oldest
of the existing Life Assurance Institutions of Great Britain, it has long
possessed the largest Life Assurance Fund, now amounting to : SEVEN MILLION
STERLING It's Investments are all of the highest class, not one of them
involving liability, or subject to fluctuation in value. The results already
realised by Members, past and present are shown in the following examples of
Claims recently Paid and Policies in Force
Original Sun Assured
Original Sum Assured
The amounts payable under the above "Policies in
Force" will increase with each additional year of their subsistence.
The Next Division of Profits Takes Place in 1880
Assurance effected before 31st December 1880, will rank for One Year's
The total profit of the business to 31st December 1873, the date of the last
valuation and division of surplus - among members only - exceeded FIVE
MILLION AND A HALF STERLING. Of that amount over One Million and a quarter,
or nearly one fourth of the whole profit, accrued in the seven years
immediately preceding 31st December 1873, and on division gave the Members
additions to their benefits ranging from £1.13s per cent. per annum on the
Original Sum in the New Policies, to £4 per cent, per annum on the Original
Sum in the Oldest.
Looking to the great increase that is taking place in the Society's
carefully selected HOME Business, to the ample Reserves secured by its
system of Valuation, and to the safe and productive Investment of its Funds,
there appears good reason to expect at future divisions results at least as

Provident Life Office,
50 Regent Street, London. Founded 1806
President - The Right Hon. Earl Grey
Managing Director - S. A. Beaumont, Esq., Secretary - Charles Stevens, Esq.
The Provident Life Office is the oldest purely Life Company doing business
in Ireland, and was the first Office which effected Insurance upon the Bonus
principle, returning at stated periods the net surplus of the annual
premiums. The importance of this improvement is acknowledged by
extraordinary public approbation and by the numerous initiations of it,
which new Offices have lately offered, and which older ones have adopted, in
changing their constitutions. The Principle upon which the surplus profits
are divided in the Provident Life Offices between the Insured and the
Shareholders, gives to each interest a share proportionate to its respective
contributions to the Society. The parties insured thus enjoy the advantages
of a mutual Society, and are relieved from any Liability, or the
apprehension which always accompanies Life Offices doing business without
subscribed capital. The advantages which this principle of allotment gives
to the Policyholders is shown by the following statement :- The Provident
Life Office has been established Seventy-Three years, during which time it
has paid to the Assured claims to the amount of £6,055,100: the Invested
Fund, belonging to the Policyholders, amounts now to £ 2,019,251.

President - The Hon. G. Talbot. Vice-President - H. Pollock, Esq.
Secretary - H. J. Puckle, Esq.
The Quinquennial Valuation made at the end of 1875, enabled the Directors to
declare a Reduction of Sixty per Cent, upon the original Premiums on all
Policies in Class A for the five years ending with 1880. (This class was
closed on 31st December 1870)
In Class b, Policies have a reduction of Premium for the whole term of Life,
which in the case of those affected in 1871, varied from 3 1/2 to 24 per
Cent, according to the age of the Life Assured, at the last Valuation.
All the Profits belong to the Assured, and (as regards Class B), are applied
to the gradual reduction and ultimate extinction of their Premiums, a result
which may be expected to occur, on an average, in about twenty years from
the date of the Policy.
Funds for the Education of Children and for their Establishment in Life may
be provided on unusually favourable terms, on a new system lately introduced
by this Society, based upon Tables of mortality specially constructed for
The next Division of Profits will be made at the end of 1880.
