The world's biggest bond fund, PIMCO Total Return (PTTRX), is also one of the best. However, three intermediate-bond funds have bested legendary manager Bill Gross' returns at PIMCO. Each has done so by taking on more risk than PIMCO Total Return.

 Calvert Income (CFICX) has returned 8.16% for the trailing 10 years, while Managers Bond (MGFIX) has returned 7.62%, and Dreyfus Intermediate-Term Income (DRITX) is up 7.41%. PIMCO Total Return has returned 7.12% over the same period.
