"Has Any Fund Ever Grown Faster Than This One?"

Jeff Gundlach flagship mutual fund continues to rake in inflows, to the tune of $15.4 billion over the past year and $6.4 billion in the first quarter of 2012 alone. According to Morningstar's just-released Q1 fund flow report, DoubleLine Total Return [profile] is "leading all U.S. open-end funds over both periods."

"Has any fund ever grown faster than this one?" wrote the report's author, MStar product manager Syl Flood.

The fund tracker has some bad news for investors of Bruce Berkowitz's Fairholme Fund who redeemed $7.6 billion between April and December 2011. After losing half its assets between Feb. 2011 and March 2012, the fund notched returns of 10.6 percent in January and 14.3 percent in February.

The top five fund families for Q1 2012, by net inflows, were: Vanguard [profile], PIMCO [profile], J.P. Morgan [profile], DoubleLine [profile] and Dimensional Fund Advisors [profile]. In total, long term funds took in $106 billion in Q1.
