Abstract We study continuous-time optimal consumption and investment with Epstein–Zin recursive preferences in incomplete markets. We develop a novel approach that rigorously constructs the solution of the associated Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equation by a fixed point argument and makes it possible to compute both the indirect utility and, more importantly, optimal strategies. Based on these results, we also establish a fast and accurate method for numerical computations. Our setting is not restricted to affine asset price dynamics; we only require boundedness of the underlying model coefficients.
