This paper studies a decision maker who chooses monetary bets/investment portfolios under pure uncertainty. Necessary and sufficient conditions on his preferences over these objects are provided for his choice behavior to be guided by the maxmin expected value rule, and therefore to exhibit both "risk neutrality" and ambiguity aversion. This result is obtained as an extension of a simple re-characterization of de Finetti's theorem on maximization of subjective expected value.
