REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS

OF THE

GRESHAM LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY,

TO THE ORDINARY GENERAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS

Held on NOVEMBER 18th, 1879.

HEAD OFFICE—ST. MILDRED'S HOUSE, LONDON.

The Directors have now to present thoir Report on the operations nf the thirty-second financial year of the Society ending June 30th, 1880.

During the year 6,206 proposals wero made to the Society for assuring the sum of £2,310,346. Of these proposals 4,717 wero accepted for the assurance of £1,760,320, and policies were issued for that amount. The immediate annuities granted during the year wero for £12,370 -is. lOd.

The income received from premiums, after deducting the amount paid for re-assurance, was £146,992 10b. 4cl, including £56,961 7s. 7d. in premiums for the first yoir of assurance.

The balance of the interest account amounted to £116,126 17s. 94., which, together with the receipt from premiums, raised the income of the Society to £563,119 8s. Id. for the year. The accrued interest which had not been received at the dato of closing the accounts, is included in the item of "Outstanding Interest" among the assets.

The claims made upon the Society, and admitted during tho year under Life Assurance policies, were for an amount of £210,897 10s., of which sum £3,ooo was re-assured, whilst the claims under policies for Endowments that had matured amounted to £100,655 2s. 5d. Tho sum of £36,696 6s. 8d. was paid for the surrender of policies

After providing for these amounts—for tho annuities falling due within the year—for all necessary office expenses, and other charges on the income of the year, there remained a balance of £175,330 13s. 7d., on the receipts of the year, which augments the fund available for the existing policies of the Society. This fund at

the end of the financial year was thus raised to £2,759,91217s. lOd., and together with £65,014 5s. 9d. reserved for the settlement of claims outstanding, for the payment of annuities not applied for, and for other purposes specified in the balance-sheet, make up a total of £2,824,927 3s. 7d., in realized assets, as shown in the second Schedule appended tD this lteport.

Tho accounts have been duly audited by G. H. Ladbury, Esq., the Public Accountant (a Shareholder of tho Society), on tho partof tho Shareholders; and by the Notary Public, W. W. Venn, Esq. (a Policyholder), on behalf of the Policyholders. The wholo of the securities and documents representing the assets of the Society huve been verified, both by the Directors and by the Auditors.

The amount of funds available for investments during the year has been placed so as to yield an average rate of interest of 4J per cent. The dividends and interest received during tho year compared with the amount of funds at the end of tho year show an average rate of interest of £4 4s. Id. per cent.

The Direct ors retiring on the present occasion aro Messrs. Wm. Trego, A. H. Smee, and R. Crawley, who, being eligible and willing to servo again, aro recommended by tho Board to constitute the list for re-election.

Mr. Ladbury and Mr. Venn retire as Auditors, but, being eligible they are candidates for election, tho former on behalf of the Share holders, and the latter on behalf of the Policyholders.

Tho Directors offer their congratulations on the 1 pcrity of the Society.
