Babson-United, Inc. is a private, family-owned, non-bank holding company involved in the management of family real-estate and other holdings.

  

Prior to May of 2002, the company operated a registered investment advisor.  The antecedent to that privately held and renowned metropolitan Boston firm was founded in 1904 by Roger W. Babson, who also established Babson College, located in Babson Park, Massachusetts.  Babson College is acclaimed and nationally recognized as, "The #1 ranked college for entrepreneurial business studies."  Roger Babson was famed for predicting "The Great Wall Street Crash" in 1929 and for prior positioning of his clients' assets.  A fundamentals-based, long-term style to equities investing was a mainstay of his investing philosophy.
