Most of the Insurance Companies seem to have done well during last year in the matter of Fire profits, and in the case of the Sun Life Assurance Society, the results are ahead of any in recent years, the profit being £256,334 against £166,506, this showing a profit of 11.4 per cent. of the pre- miums. In the Accident Department, the profit was £124,819 against £90,983. Thanks to the excellent underivriting figures, a sum of £200,000 is set aside to an Investment and Exchange Reserve Fund, while the unappropriated balance is raised from £846,704 to £912,449.
