Bond Fund King Inches Closer to Reclaiming Throne

The bond fund king is beginning to recover after the spring bloodbath that drained his funds significantly, and led to $10 billion of outflows in June.

Pimco [profile] Total Return Fund lost 3.6 percent between April and June, but famed PM Bill Gross gave investors a 0.47 percent in total returns in July through Monday, better than the Barclays Aggregate Bond Index return of 0,14 percent, the Wall Street Journal's Min Zeng reports. In 2013 so far, Gross has lost 2.56 percent, Zeng writes.

Zeng notes that Gross "has taken great pains in recent weeks in reassuring clients to stay on board after the fund suffered an unprecedentedly large net outflow in June–nearly $10 billion."
