(Bloomberg) -- The rush of money leaving PIMCO is easing up.

Assets under management at Pimco were $1.47 trillion as of September, little changed from $1.52 trillion as of June 30, the Newport Beach, Calif.-based company reported on its website. It was the smallest percentage drop since co-founder Bill Gross departed.

Pimco was hit with a wave of redemptions after Gross suddenly left the firm in September 2014. Investors pulled money from Pimco’s mutual funds and institutional accounts, creating a windfall for other bond managers including TCW Group and DoubleLine Capital, both of Los Angeles.

Pimco had $1.97 trillion in assets as of June 30, 2014, and $1.88 trillion at Sept. 30, 2014, shortly after Gross left to go to Janus, where he manages the $1.38 billion Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund.


Assets in the Pimco Total Return Fund, which had been run by Gross for decades, fell to $95.5 billion as of Sept. 30, down from $201.6 billion a year earlier.

Gross earlier this month sued Pimco and parent Allianz for “hundreds of millions of dollars,” claiming he was wrongfully pushed out of the firm. Pimco has said the suit has no merit.

Agnes Crane, a spokeswoman for Pimco, declined to comment on the firm’s asset levels.
