G A Chester

He has subsequently worked as a writer and editor in a variety of fields, and began contributing to the Fool as a freelancer in 2010. His investing career has progressed from the mis-priced second favourite in the 2.30 at Ascot, through speculative small caps, to conservatively-run family firms and the occasional 'special situation'.
