(Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is drawing record deposits into a bond mutual fund that’s making money even as interest rates rise, giving the bank a boost in one of the few Wall Street businesses it hasn’t dominated.

The Goldman Sachs Strategic Income Fund attracted $9.8 billion in the first 11 months of 2013, more than three times the net new cash taken in by the New York-based company’s previous best-sellingmutual fund in a calendar year, according to Morningstar Inc. data going back to 1993. The $12.5 billion fund returned 5.3 percent in 2013 through Dec. 13, beating 96 percent of rivals, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The fund has quintupled in size this year.
