Baron Funds Investment Conference

Sorry that this post isn’t related to our business, but I think it might be of interest to some people who read my blog. Baron Capital Group (Baron investment funds) holds a one-day investment conference / shareholder’s meeting every year in New York City called the Baron Investment Conference. If you own stock in any Baron Fund, you are probably eligible to attend, and I recommend that you do attend if you can.

Last year’s conference was great for a few reasons. I had the chance to listen to several CEOs   speak about their companies, and this in and of itself was interesting. Additionally, Baron Fund managers took the stage to discuss their funds, and Ron Baron (the founder of the company) also spoke. Not only was Ron humorous, but he was also reassuring, something that was appreciated during the tough economic climate of last year.

Sound like the same old shareholder’s meeting held by every other company? Wrong. Last year’s conference featured a set of about 5-8 songs by The Eagles during lunch, and several songs from Rod Stewart in the afternoon, both oldies and some newer songs. In prior years, the crowd was entertained by Jerry Seinfeld, Elton John, The Beach Boys, and other top acts.

If you have invested in any Baron Funds (check your managed accounts and retirement accounts), you are probably eligible to attend. If you elected to not receive annual reports, voting ballots, and other reports in the mail, you may not have received the invitation, so check with your financial adviser.

This year’s conference will be held in New York City on October 22, 2010, and if you’re eligible to attend, I recommend it.
