Bill Gross's Pimco Total Return Fund, the world's largest bond fund, lost $41 billion of its assets in the past four months through withdrawals and price losses, according to data from Morningstar Inc on Wednesday... [it] has seen its assets shrink by 14 percent to $251 billion at the end of August from $292 billion at the end of April, Morningstar added.

Investors have pulled cash out of bond funds this year as rising interest rates have made fixed-income securities vulnerable to price losses. Gross and his co-chief investment officer at Pimco, Mohamed El-Erian, are watched closely because they have made money by anticipating big moves in the economy and interest rates way before other investors.
