In an incomplete market, with incompleteness stemming from stochastic factors imperfectly correlated with the underlying stocks, we derive representations of homothetic forward investment performance processes (power, exponential and logarithmic). We develop a connection with ergodic and infinite horizon quadratic BSDE, and with a risk-sensitive control problem. We also develop a connection, for large trading horizons, with a family of traditional homothetic value function processes.
