Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 14, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, Marcrlt 14.1011. THE LETITT5RTDGE DAILY HERALD Pnee 7. SUN LIFE Assurance Company Canada . HEAD OFFICE - MONTREAL A GRAND RECORD IN 1910 The increases in Assurances in force, in Cash Income, and in Assets, were never equalled by any Canadian Life Assurance Company in any year. The expense rati6 was again further reduced notwithstanding the large increases in all items of business. The great confidence of the public is shown by the fact that over $1,400,000 was paid to the Company for annuities last year. The protection for the policyholders is" completely secured by the enormous assets and surplus of the Company. The hic^h standard of profits to policyholders has been maintained and its continuance is assured by the soundness and exceedingly profitable character of the investments. The f;reat success of the 'Zomo^ny is not confined to Canada alone, but its vast ir Isi-ness and important connections in other lands are doin-^ yeo-ri:in service in greatly enhancing the prestige of this country abroad, and in bringing home larr^t sums for investment.
