Aumann and Serrano (J Political Econ 116(5):810–836, 2008 ) introduce the axiom of duality, which ensures that risk measures respect comparative risk aversion. This paper characterizes all dual risk measures by a simple equivalent condition. This equivalence provides a decomposition result and a construction method, which is used to analyze concrete dual measures. Moreover, this paper aims to extend this characterization to the most general setting. Compared with Aumann and Serrano ( 2008 ), it, therefore, relaxes the axiom of positive homogeneity, and allows for risk-neutral and risk-seeking agents, as well as for all integrable gambles.
