What is Target Drawdown?


Cabana numerically quantifies acceptable levels of risk by identifying a “target drawdown” percentage for each portfolio at the onset of the investment process.


Drawdown is defined as the maximum loss, or amount an investment can be expected to fall, from peak to trough during adverse market conditions.


Monthly returns are used to calculate the drawdown percentage. This method of measurement creates a new "high-water mark" each time the portfolio’s value increases, which means drawdown is determined from a portfolio’s highest value, not from an investor’s starting balance.


All portfolios in the Target Drawdown Professional Series are constructed with the primary goal of minimizing losses where possible - especially losses that exceed a portfolio’s target drawdown parameter. This investment philosophy allows clients to remain fully invested at all times, set expectations for loss, and actively participate in favorable market conditions.
