I examine the optimal portfolio allocation for investors with risk frequency preferences. As an implication, the portfolio opportunity set can be uniquely constructed from a set of basis frequency structures. Factor model representations represent restrictions on the frequency structure space, which is equivalent to finding a linear combination of frequency structures that are required to price a portfolio. A portfolio’s alpha results from the frequency structure misalignment between the marginal investor and the factor model implied one.
