Introduction by David Frank, CFA

Biography: Bob Greer was the first person to define an investable commodity index or to advocate it as a separate asset class. For eight years he managed the commodity index business, first of Daiwa Securities, and then of Chase Manhattan Bank and JPMorgan. Prior to his management of commodity indices, Mr. Greer spent ten years in the investment real estate business. These many years of real asset investment experience have culminated in Mr. Greer's current position at PIMCO, where he is an Executive Vice President and Manager of Real Return Products, a product line which embraces commodities, inflation-linked bonds, real estate, and active asset allocation.
