We study the relationship between two widely used risk measures, spectral measures and distortion risk measures. In both cases, the risk measure can be thought of as a re-weighting of some initial distribution. We prove that spectral risk measures are equivalent to distorted risk pricing measures, or equivalently, spectral risk functions are equivalent to distortion functions. Besides, we prove that distorted measures are absolutely continuous with respect to the original measure. This allows us to find a link between the risk measures based on relative entropy and spectral risk measures or measures based on distortion risk functions.
