Prospectus. ment, and affords opportunities of commanding business not secured by companies devoted to either branch alone. The success which has attended Mutual Life Assurance Companies elsewhere has been most remarkable. As an instance, the Colonial Mutual Assurance Society of Melbourne may be quoted, which, during the first year, issued 457 policies, and at the end of the eighth year had 4,313 policies, with an annual income of L 164,450. Although power will be taken in the Articles of Association for the carrying on of this branch of the business, it is not intended to open the department until the Fire Business has been well established, and until the services of a thoroughly competent actuary have been secured. • The following reasons may be adduced from among many which might be urged to show the certainty that success will be j attendant on the Company’s operations: — 1. The Association will supply two acknowledged wants, viz. : —Fire Insurance conducted on principles epuitable to insurers, and local Life Assurance. 2. The nature of the business to be engaged in is ordinarily very profitable. 3. diversity of the Association’s ‘ Operations constituting a great ‘ „ source of strength. *4;- The Association combining the popularity of the co-operative principle together with the security to be derived from a widely diffused proprietary. The Memorandum and Articles of Association may be inspected at the office of the Solicitors. Applications for Shares, which shall be made on the prescribed form, must be lodged with the Secretary, the Brokers, or the Colonial Bank of New Zealand, at any of its branches. 200
