Pimco All-Asset, a fund-of-funds gateway to a broad spectrum of assets, rounds out the pack. The fund, which had a relatively mild 10% loss since June, aims to beat inflation -- one of the biggest threats manager Rob Arnott sees looming on the horizon.
"Most investors have their money in stocks and bonds, and unexpected inflation is a disaster," says Arnott.
Nearly 30% of his portfolio is now in inflation-buffering assets like commodities and Treasury inflation-protected securities.
