                              Hedge Fund Database Questionnaire

Dear Reader,

The HMS Database Service is the innovative and easy way to get listed on the major databases.

To get listed on the major databases please fill out this questionnaire, save it and send it back to us.

If you have any questions during this process, do not hesitate to contact us. Please make sure to provide accurate
data.

In addition to this worksheet we require the following material:

1. Legal Documents
2. Latest Audit Report (if applicable)
3. Manager Biographies (Word.doc)
4. Fund Description (Word.doc)

While other material like Company Logo, Manager Photos, Fund Reports etc. is no requirement for any listing,
we recommend to provide as much information as possible since this will help potential investors make informed decisions.
It will also give your fund the maximum benefit of any database listing.


This questionnaire is organised into the following worksheets:
