Presented is the formulation for determining the exact, expected growth-optimal fraction of equity to risk for all conditions, rather than merely the asymptotic growth-optimal fraction. The formulation presented represents the surface in the leverage space manifold, wherein the loci at the peak of the surface are those fractions for maximizing expected growth. Other criteria can be solved for upon the surface in the leverage space manifold utilizing the equation specified here.
