We examine a two-asset portfolio choice problem wherein an individual with smooth ambiguity preferences has to allocate his unit wealth into one risky and one ambiguous asset that have correlated returns. We derive necessary and sufficient conditions under which the ambiguity-averse individual’s optimal investment in the ambiguous asset exceeds a given threshold, which give rise to the minimum demand condition for the ambiguous asset. We further derive sufficient conditions under which ambiguity aversion adversely affects the ambiguity-averse individual’s optimal investment in the ambiguous asset at both the extensive and intensive margins. We show that these results reconcile the empirical findings that ambiguity aversion can explain five household portfolio choice puzzles: (i) non-participation in stock markets, (ii) low portfolio fractions allocated to stocks, (iii) home-bias, (iv) own-company stock ownership, and (v) portfolio under-diversification.
