Abstract: Estimating functions provide a very general framework for the statistical inference of dynamic models under weak assumptions. We consider a class of time series modelsconsisting in the parametrization of the first two conditional moments which---by contrast with classical location scale dynamic models---do not impose further constraints on the conditional distribution/moments. Quasi-Likelihood Estimators (QLE) are obtained by solving estimating equations deduced from those two conditional moments. Conditions ensuring the existence and asymptotic properties (consistency and asymptotic normality) of such estimators are provided. We pay special attention to the optimal QLE in Godambe's sense. The particular case of the Quasi-Maximum Likelihood Estimators (QMLE) is considered. For pure location models, a data-driven procedure for optimally choosing the QLE is proposed. Our results are illustrated via Monte Carlo experiments and real financial data.
