Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the investment carefully before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectuses contain this and other information about the Funds. You may obtain them from the Funds’ distributor, Baron Capital, Inc., by calling 1-800-99BARON or visiting www.BaronFunds.com. Please read them carefully before investing.

RISKS: The fund invests in other Baron funds and the selection of the underlying funds and the allocation of the Fund’s assets among the various market sectors could cause the Fund to underperform in comparison to other funds with a similar investment objective. In addition to the general stock market risk that securities may fluctuate in value, investments in developing countries may have increased risks due to a greater possibility of: settlement delays; currency and capital controls; interest rate sensitivity; corruption and crime; exchange rate volatility; and inflation or deflation. The Fund invests in companies of all sizes, including small and medium sized companies whose securities may be thinly traded and more difficult to sell during market downturns.

The Fund may not achieve its objectives.

Definitions (provided by BAMCO, Inc.): The index is unmanaged. The S&P 500 Index measures the performance of 500 widely held large-cap U.S. companies. The S&P 500 Index and the Fund are with dividends, which positively impact the performance results. Index performance is not fund performance. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
