What is different with this compared to standard deviation is it only looks at the negative returns, whereas standard deviation looks at both the positive and negative returns. How this may be important is it gives the user a look at possible losses. Many people only look at the expect growth of an investment, but fail to realize the potential drawdowns. Minimizing risk while optimizing returns is the goal of every trader and investor.
