We investigate the problem of the rate of convergence to equilibrium for ergodic stochastic differential equations driven by fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter H>1/2 and multiplicative noise component σ. When σ is constant and for every H∈(0,1), it was proved by Hairer that, under some mean-reverting assumptions, such a process converges to its equilibrium at a rate of order t−α where α∈(0,1) (depending on H). The aim of this paper is to extend such types of results to some multiplicative noise setting. More precisely, we show that we can recover such convergence rates when H>1/2 and the inverse of the diffusion coefficient σ is a Jacobian matrix. The main novelty of this work is a type of extension of Foster-Lyapunov like techniques to this non-Markovian setting, which allows us to put in place an asymptotic coupling scheme without resorting to deterministic contracting properties.
