Ron Baron Investing Philosophy

Ron Baron invests primarily in small and mid-size growth companies. He likes companies with open-ended growth opportunities and defensible niches. He applies a bottom-up company research, invests for the long-term, and tries to purchase companies at what he believes are attractive prices. He invests in growth companies using a value-oriented purchase discipline. Baron ignores short-term market fluctuations when he believes the fundamental reasons for purchasing a company have not changed. He holds investments for longer than five years on average.
