Honey, I Shrunk the Assets
The mutual fund industry's largest actively managed offering is now a bond fund, according to Morningstar's database.
Turbulent stock markets and a strong shift of shareholders from equity to bond funds have drastically reduced the assets of large-cap blend offering Fidelity Magellan (FMAGX) and augmented the coffers of intermediate-term bond fund Pimco Total Return (PTRAX). In July Pimco Total Return stole Magellan's title as the largest actively managed mutual fund and second largest mutual fund of any type.
