Abstract : In this paper, we address the issue of estimating the parameters of general multivariate copulas, that is, copulas whose partial derivatives may not exist. To this aim, we consider a weighted least-squares estimator based on dependence coefficients, and establish its consistency and asymptotic normality. The estimator's performance on finite samples is illustrated on simulations and a real dataset.
