Gross’ PIMCO Total Return Fund, the world’s largest mutual fund, absorbed a record US$9.9 billion in net redemptions last month. Gross underperformed rivals during the bond selloff, taking losses on his holdings of Treasuries and inflation-linked Treasuries, which fell 5.5 percent since May 21, Merrill Lynch indices show.

Gross’ fund lost 2.4 percent over the past month, worse than 92 percent of rivals, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
