Big Bond Fund's Struggles Quantified

Pimco Total Return Fund had $9.9 billion in withdrawals last month; the fund's manager insists the worst is over for bond investors.

Bill Gross’s Pimco Total Return Fund, the world’s largest mutual fund, absorbed a record $9.9 billion in net redemptions last month as investors fled bonds in anticipation of the Federal Reserve scaling back its purchases.

Pacific Investment Management Co., the Newport Beach, California-based firm that runs the fund, provided the preliminary estimate to Morningstar Inc., the Chicago-based research firm said today in an e-mailed statement. The withdrawals left the fund with $268 billion in assets at the end of June, Morningstar said.
