    Forward Looking Statements

    Home Equity Income Trust from time to time makes written and verbal
forward-looking statements about business objectives, operations, performance,
and financial condition, including, in particular, the forecast of cash
distributions and anticipated dividend policy, the Trust's plans relating to
the conversion and the establishment of HomEquity Bank, and the likelihood of
HOMEQ's success in developing and expanding its business. These may be
included in the Annual Reports, regulatory filings, reports to unitholders,
press releases, Trust presentations and other communications. These
forward-looking statements are based upon a number of assumptions and

materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
HOMEQ does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement, whether
written or verbal, that may be made from time to time except as required by
applicable securities laws.
