List view, only return selected attributes to the client, possible?

When using a list view, all the attributes and all the associations (where the entity is owner of) are being returned to the client by the server. In our case, this takes more than 15 seconds, and will be more when we add more projects in our system.  In comparison with a data grid, where only the selected attributes in the screen are returned to the client from the server.   Are there some tips to only return the selected fields in the list view?

In one of the projects I work on we have a list showing only what we specify as parameters, this is what it looks like for us. 

This returns a list of peoples names and their picture. 

Could you do something like this?
