The Prudential's 1909 Figures. INCREASED BONUS TO THE ORDINARY AND INDUSTRIAL POLICY HOLDERS. The chief event of this period of the insurance year is the publication of the Prudential's re- port and accounts. Everybody in the business is anxious to know how the biggest company has done; for everybody is curious about giants and wonders—and there is no doubt that the Prudential is the wonder of the insurance world. Year by year it grows by leaps and bounds. The figures it shows are so stupendous that one can scarce srrasp them. What is additionally marvellous is that jt is improving its benefits so quickly. In 1906 the company was paying an ordinary branch bonus of 30s. per cent. In 1907 it increased this by 2s.; and again this year, as the present report shows, it has in creased it by another 2s.—thus making it 34s. per cent. This increase is unequalled in the same period; and it is one on which the man- r agement is to be heartily congratulated, par- ticularly in view of the financial stringency dur- ing the last four years. Many of the purely ordinary offices have reduced their bonuses in this period, yet the Prudential has made an 1 increase twice! Probably this increased ordin- ary bonus is the feature of the 1909 accounts. It is certainly one which will bring very great satisfaction to some millions of ordinary branch policyholders. The representatives of the com- pany, too, will greatly rejoice, for not only does the increase more than justify the faith in the company which they have expressed to existing policyholders, it gives them a magnifi- cent opportunity for hew business. Another, feature of the accounts is the increase in the industrial branch bonus. It is, of course, well known that industrial bonuses are of recent birth, and. indeed, are not yet generally giver.. In increasing its bonus, therefore, for the thir*: time in three years the Prudential must be helci to have accomplished a great feat. We refer I readers to our other columns for details of the increase, but we would remark that this further generosity to the public must make the Pru- dential more popular than ever" amongst the working classes.
