What sets apart long-term investors when it comes to the key factors that determine investment success? Different time horizons, risk appetites or institutional constraints give each investor a unique ranking of key factors that are affecting its investment behavior and performance.

This question was the focus of the first UBS-IMD Sovereign Investment Circle, held in 2018, which examined the key factors that will determine investment success for long-term investors over the coming decades.
