The 21st Annual Baron Investment Conference drew over 4,000 Baron Funds' shareholders today at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center in New York City.

Shareholders of the 12 Baron Funds were invited to the all-day conference, which included presentations from five CEOs of businesses in which the funds have invested. Those presentations were followed by remarks from Baron Capital Group president Linda Martinson, then a panel of Baron fund managers who answered questions from shareholders in an open session.

The presentations were concluded with remarks from Ron Baron, Baron Capital Group chairman and CEO.

There was also entertainment provided by Celine Dion, Harry Connick, Jr., Kristen Chenoweth and Joss Stone.

We want Baron Funds' shareholders to understand our process and see for themselves the qualities and type of leadership we look for when considering our investments."
