We consider a controlled diffusion process [Inline formula] where the controller is allowed to choose drift [Inline formula] and volatility [Inline formula] from a set [Inline formula] when [Inline formula]. By choosing the largest [Inline formula] at every point in time, an extremal process is constructed which is under suitable time changes stochastically larger than any other admissible process. This observation immediately leads to a very simple solution of problems where ruin or hitting probabilities have to be minimized. Under further conditions this extremal process also minimizes ‘drawdown’ probabilities.
