This paper presents results on the existence and characterization of Pareto efficient and of equilibrium allocations in a continuous-time setting under uncertainty in which agents have stochastic differential utility, a version of recursive utility. In order to characterize equilibrium and efficient allocations in terms of pointwise first-order conditions, uniform properness conditions on preferences are avoided.
