PROVIDENT MUTUAL
BARES 1933 GAINS
Philadelphia Company Showg
Larger Increase in Assets Than
for Preceding Year*.
Assets of the Provident Mutual
Life Insurance Co. of Philadelphia
at the end of 1933 amounted to *268.
225.000, an Increase of *6,838.00*
during the year, M. A Linton, presi
dent of the company, stated in hla
raport to policyholders.
General contingency reserves In
creased slightly to *18.308.000. after
deducting *5,212.000 for policyholders'
dividends for the year 1934 and mak
ing provision for all liabilities.
"The year 1933 records a number
of events which were discouraging at
the time they occurred but which
now in the retrospect may well ba
looked upon as part of the readjust
ment leading toward recovery," Mr.
Linton said.
The amount of Insurance the com
pany had outstanding at the close of
1933 was *954,411,000, which repre
sents a decrease of only 4.4 per cent
from the figure for the previous year.
New insurance amounted to $71,
500.000 or 75 per cent of the figure for
1933. “In appraising this figure It is
important to keep in mind that the
company has discouraged the writ
ing of new insurance to replace out
standing life of endowment Insur
ance," Mr. Linton said. "This kind of
a change so often Involves potential
loss to the policyholder that we have
not felt It right to seek a nominal In
crease in new business by that
method.”
"Reflecting the improvement In the
general economic situation cash de
mands upon the company in 1933 on
account of cash values and policy
loans was *9.511,000 as compared with
*17.270,000 in 1932. which was the
peak year,” Mr. Linton said.
