Try to spend some time taking a look at the fund’s top 5 holdings to be informed about their best picks for 2022.

In its Q1 2022 investor letter, Baron Global Advantage Fund mentioned ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) and explained its insights for the company. Founded in 2019, ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) is a Vancouver, Washington-based software as a service company with a $19.8 billion market capitalization. ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) delivered a -23.36% return since the beginning of the year, while its 12-month returns are up by 1.61%. The stock closed at $49.20 per share on May 02, 2022.

Here is what Baron Global Advantage Fund has to say about ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:

"ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. operates a cloud-based B2B platform that provides sales, marketing, and HR teams with comprehensive business intelligence, enabling shorter sales cycles and higher win rates. While the stock was down 7% over the course of the first quarter, well-timed purchases turned it into a contributor that added 18bps to absolute returns. The company continues to execute well with another positive quarterly earnings surprise and strong forward bookings, with 2021 revenues growing 57% year-over-year, and with 46% free-cash-flow margins. New products are starting to build momentum, and we believe ZoomInfo can become a much larger company over time as it penetrates its $70 billion total addressable market."
