Will Europe’s most popular fund continue to steal the show?
This year alone, the Pimco Income fund has attracted more than €28bn in net new money from European investors, according to Morningstar data. This is almost half of all net inflows into unconstrained bond funds this year, and has made the $64.3bn (€54.6bn) strategy the world’s largest actively managed fund.

Even the inflows the Standard Life GARS fund saw in its heydays are peanuts compared to the money the Pimco Income Fund has attracted this year. Can it continue?
