For our Chief Economist, John Greenwood, getting more out of life means going on challenging hikes and scuba diving. Real estate specialist Simon Redman and fixed income expert Gareth Isaac share a passion for running marathons, while Scott Wolle from the risk-parity team said he likes balanced risk approaches – and moments later he mentioned that, last summer, he had jumped down 200 meters into the Zambezi River gorge. And the former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov has lived through enough ups and downs for more than one life.
These few examples of the EYES ON 2018 keynote speakers show how manifold the dreams and aspirations of people can be, and why we challenge ourselves to help our clients get more out of life. Because it is worthwhile, because it is highly rewarding, and because it is the way we work.
If you took part in the EYES ON 2018 mountain trek, then the following impressions will be a visual reminder of the most important points along the journey. And if you weren’t able to join in, take these impressions with you as inspiration along the journey through 2018. You will receive your invitation to EYES ON 2019 next summer.
Get more out of life: stick with us and I look forward to the next time our paths cross!
With warm regards,
CEO Invesco Switzerland and Head of Wholesale

After 100 consecutive months of an expanding US economy, is the end of this business cycle approaching? Will things suddenly get worse? Nervousness in the investment world is growing, John Greenwood said, as experts and observers ponder such questions. But then he had some good news for those attending EYES ON 2018. “The current cycle will be the longest in US financial history,” he declared, “longer than the 120 months we saw in the 1990s.”Read more ›
Income, total return, diversification: institutional and private investors invest in real estate for a range of specific reasons. “Which one is the most important for you?” This was Simon Redman’s opening question for guests at EYES ON 2018 – and the result of the live voting may have come as a surprise for some of them. It turned out that the importance of all three motivators for the audience was almost equal. But this was not all. There were more surprising facts to confront the audience.Read more ›
Investors have benefitted from the historic ability of high-quality bonds to do well in many periods when other assets fall. But can bonds still play their historic role in the long-standing low yield environment? And how can a portfolio be constructed that is helpful in phases of inflationary growth, non-inflationary growth and recessions?Read more ›
“Investors have been pushed out of their natural homes – ‘risk-free’ cash and government bonds,” said Gareth Isaac as he expressed the conviction that quantitative easing has driven a great deal of asset price returns over the past decade. He continued, “When I look at where we are, in terms of valuations, we may need to be more cautious in terms of risk in 2018 than we were this year.”Read more ›
Imagine someone approaching you when you were a mere 22 years old, only to tell you “I feel sorry for you, because the happiest moment in your life has just happened.” Unimaginable? And not so easy to ‘get more out of life’ in the decades after such an experience?Read more ›
Get to know our Swiss team with three questions on the EYES ON 2018 motto Get more out of life.
Get more out of life ...
... means for me, personally having the resources and the time to thoroughly enjoy my life with my family and friends.
... would be even easier to achieve, if we took more time to talk with one another.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by helping them, with integrity and transparency, to achieve their personal goals.
... means for me, personally consciously living in the here-and-now, yet always looking expectantly at the big picture.
... would be even easier to achieve, if we would not get distracted by things that are, ultimately, less important.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by listening more in order to discover their individual needs.
... means for me, personally being fully engaged with whatever I am doing, heart and soul, understanding what I am doing and why. This enables me to take ownership of tasks and to act accordingly.
... would be even easier to achieve, if I could regularly take time to gather all the information I need to understand the situation exactly.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by continuing to work together with the Client Service Team to fulfil our duties in line with what is best for our customers.
... means for me, personally taking the risks and opportunities of life into account and trying to find the right balance between them.
... would be even easier to achieve, if we were surrounded by people who were pursuing the same basic goal.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by working together towards the same goal with my customers, and offering them the best product for every market situation with the expanded Powershares ETF range.
... means for me, personally optimising the asset allocation of career, family and sport.
... would be even easier to achieve, if I had a magic wand to solve the problems of the world. Although that would just create new problems. Maybe it’s not such a good idea after all.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by listening even more closely.
... means for me, personally health, personal satisfaction, and actively shaping the various aspects of my life.
... would be even easier to achieve, if the simple things in life were more valued and appreciated.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by listening, taking note of what is needed, and then contributing to finding a solution together.
... means for me, personally many things. Like everyone, I have my bucket list. Well, it may be time to pick one or two things out of this list and do it, actually.
... would be even easier to achieve, if weeks had eight days.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by providing our clients with the expertise, the convictions and the opinions of all Invesco experts to help them forge their own ones.
... means for me, personally ‘Don’t dream your life, live your dreams!’
... would be even easier to achieve, if we focused more on the really relevant things in life. We expend far too much time and energy on things that are only secondary.
... is what I will purse for my customers in 2018 by understanding customer needs precisely, so that I can create and offer the optimal solution for the customer’s situation.
