Abigail is the daughter of Elizabeth Hodges Johnson and Edward C. Johnson II, the Chairman and CEO of Fidelity Investments. She shuns publicity and remains discreet like her father. During her visits to her father during childhood, she felt drawn towards the energy and buzz of the trading rooms. However, she did not want to spend her whole career at the family business, and thus joined Fidelity as an apprentice.
