Abstract

We introduce an innovation expansion method for estimation of factor models for conditional variance (volatility) of a multivariate time series.We estimate the factor loading space and the number of factors by a stepwise optimization algorithm on expanding the "white noise space". Simulation and a real data example are given for illustration.
