Our companies name is a tribute to 2 of the pioneers of the life and health insurance industry, Edmond Halley and James Dodson.
Edmond Halley – A brilliant mathematician, physicist, and astronomer is best known for observing and predicting the return of the comet which is now known as Halley’s Comet. Halley is also credited with developing the first mortality table in 1693 using statistics on life spans. The ground breaking discovery set the stage for widespread use of these tables for future generations. Mortality tables are used throughout insurance and finance, setting premium rates, determining pension payouts, calculating IRA minimum distributions, and many other applications.
James Dodson – In 1756 Dodson expanded Halley’s work on mortality tables and developed the concept of life insurance with premiums based on age and the time value of money. His landmark work “First Lecture on Insurances” set the stage for the actuarial basis of life and health insurance. Ironically, Dodson was denied admission (declined for life insurance) to the Amicable Life Assurance Society due to his age, (the society did not accept anyone over 45). As a result, Dodson decided to form a new society that would be more equitable. In 1762, the Equitable Life Assurance Society was founded to put Dodson’s actuarial principles into practice.
