The Directors of the INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL SOCIETY, in submitting this Prospectus to the Public, call attention to the fact that the Company has been established to supply an admitted want in this country, where landed property is less negotiable as a Fund of Credit, than in any other of the States of Europe, in most of which large financial associations, such as the Banks of Hypothecation in Prussia, Austria, and Holland, the Credit Foncier of France, &c., &c., make advances on Land with promptitude, at a moderate rate of Interest, and at small attendant expense.

These undertakings are all founded on the principle of the intervention of a Society, with large subscribed capital and consequent credit, enabling it to raise money on the most favourable terms, as an intermediary between borrowers, and lenders seeking investment on Landed Security.

The difficulty, delay, and heavy costs incurred in effecting the mortgage of even firstclass property, are well known; and there are numerous valuable interests arising out of Lands which are at present almost wholly unavailable as a source of Credit, especially in times of financial depression.

The Company will act as Agents between the investing Public and the Borrower They will also make advances repayable at fixed terms, or by terminable annuities, on Landed Estate, and on every charge upon Land, such as County and Parish Rates, Rates levied on Land under Public or Private Acts of Parliament, Royal Charters, Commissions of Sewers, Improvement Rent Charges on Private Estates, Town Improvement Rates, Ground Rents, Harbour Trusts, &c.

All the necessary preliminary steps have been taken for applying to Parliament in the ensuing Session for a special Act in aid of the Company's operations ; and with a view mmediately to secure to the Company a field for the commencement of business, provisional

and remunerative arrangements have been made for operations of an extensive character in connection with securities created for the Improvement of Land, under the Lands Improvements Company's Acts of Parliament, and which are preference charges on valuable private estates.

Upon the basis of the Securities thus acquired, the Company will issue Mortgage Debentures at fixed rates of interest, payable half-yearly, for shorter or longer terms, as may suit Investors; and such a system of registration will be adopted as will effectively protect the lenders from any over issue of Debentures by the Company. It is well known that very large sums of money lie comparatively idle in the Provincial Banks, and in the hands of Trustees and private individuals, which it is believed will be readily invested through those Agencies, in Mortgage Debentures founded upon real securities, and further guaranteed by a large uncalled capital, many of the securities constituting, as before mentioned, first-charges upon Land under special Acts of Parliament.

The Company, acting by their Debenture system, will be enabled to turn over their paidup capital many times in the year. It is estimated that a working fund of 200,0001., being 101. per share, would be sufficient to conduct a business involving operations of three or four millions per annum, and a moderate commission upon that amount would produce an income, which, after making the most ample deductions for working expenses and reserve fund, will leave a sum available for Dividend sufficient to remunerate the Shareholders on an unusually high scale, as proved by the large profits made by the Lands Improvement Company in the ten years they have been in operation.

The powerful landed and financial support which the Company has already obtained, insure the two elements which are essential to a commercial success, namely a steady and constant demand and supply.

Applications for Shares must be made to the INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL SOCIETY (Limited), at their temporary Offices, 54 Old Broad street, E.C.
