Gundlach Beat Gross ... and Gross Beat Gundlach
The end of 2012 reports just keep coming, even several weeks into 2013.
Today Morningstar published estimated mutual fund flows through the end of December for US funds, showing that long-term open-ended funds had inflows of $243.2 billion last year.
The press release also notes a few specific funds for their performance.
For example, the Doubleline Total Return Bond [profile], which has a neutral rating from Morningstar, brought in $19.6 billion, while the Gold-rated Pimco Total Return [profile] fund brought in $18 billion. (Meaning, in a nutshell, that investors in traditional bond funds trusted more new money to Jeffrey Gundlach than to Bill Gross.) Yet when the ETF version of Gross's flagship is taken into account, he beat out Gundlach for net inflows.
Also of note is the fact that Vanguard [profile] and Pimco accounted for 61 percent of net inflows, double the 30 percent the accounted for in 2011.
