Since his retirement from the Magellan Fund, Lynch continues as a member of the board of trustees of the Fidelity Group of funds and writes a column for Worth magazine. He lives with his wife, Carolyn, and three daughters in the suburbs of Boston and is the author of the investment classic, One Up on Wall Street.
