Abigail Johnson Biography


Abigail Johnson, born in December of 1961, is a little known billionaire outside the financial world.  Ms. Johnson attended William Smith College, and later completed her MBA from Harvard Business School. She worked her way through college by answering customer service phone calls and taking orders at her father’s business, Fidelity Investments, as well as Fidelity International. She worked for a brief time as a consultant at Booz Allen and Hamilton before joining her father’s team at Fidelity Investments. Her father wanted her to learn all aspects of the business, however, and had her start as a lowly stock analyst in 1988. After proving herself to be an adept fund observer, she was promoted to Portfolio Manager, then eventually to President of Fidelity’s Employer Services Company in 2005. Ms. Johnson worked extremely hard and this led the company to be the industry powerhouse that it is today, with holdings of more than $1.4 trillion.

Ms. Johnson is married with two children and is often referred to as nothing more than “Abby” at her Boston headquarters. She is described as a cool, calm woman who believes in hard work and still spends 10 to 11 hour days at her office. Down time is often spent at her Nantucket Island home.  Ms. Johnson is one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $13.8 billion, but is extremely reserved and rarely gives interviews. However, with a 24 percent share of her family’s fortune, (The entire Johnson family owns a 49 percent share in the company) she is sure to earn much more in the future and add to her already substantial net worth. Forbes lists Ms. Johnson as the 34th most powerful woman in the world and her shrewd investments have made her one of the world’s wealthiest women.
