(Bloomberg) – Gold Should Be Thought of as Insurance Policy, Wickwire Says
Investors should look at gold as an insurance policy for other financial assets, Joseph Wickwire, who manages $4.5 billion at Fidelity Investments, said today at the Bloomberg Portfolio Manager conference in New York.

“Gold pays off when stocks, bonds and currencies disappoint,” Wickwire said. “A little goes a long way.”
