Financial data sets exhibit conditional heteroskedasticity and asymmetric volatility. In this paper we derive a semiparametric efficient adaptive estimator of a conditional heteroskedasticity and asymmetric volatility GARCH-type model (i.e., the PTTGARCH(1,1) model). Via kernel density estimation of the unknown density function of the innovation and via the Newton-Raphson technique applied on the root-n-consistent quasi-maximum likelihood estimator, we construct a more efficient estimator than the quasi-maximum likelihood estimator. Through Monte Carlo simulations, we show that the semiparametric estimator is adaptive for parameters in- cluded in the conditional variance of the model with respect to the unknown distribution of the innovation.
