This paper develops a new risk measure, known as MCED, that exhibits the attractive qualities of conditional expected drawdown without historical maximum drawdown. The findings indicate that MCED-based equal-risk approaches are superior to other drawdown-based techniques, but that drawdown-based techniques do not always perform better than a simple equal volatility-adjusted approach.
