In this paper, we study ARCH(${\infty}$) models with either geometrically decaying coefficients or hyperbolically decaying coefficients. Most popular autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (ARCH)-type models such as various modified generalized ARCH (GARCH) (p, q), fractionally integrated GARCH (FIGARCH), and hyperbolic GARCH (HYGARCH). can be expressed as one of these cases. Sufficient conditions for $L_2$-near-epoch dependent (NED) property to hold are established and the functional central limit theorems for ARCH(${\infty}$) models are proved.
