Consider a distribution $F$ with regularly varying tails of index $-\alpha$. An estimation strategy for $\alpha$, exploiting the relation between the behavior of the tail at infinity and of the characteristic function at the origin, is proposed. A semi-parametric regression model does the job: a nonparametric component controls the bias and a parametric one produces the actual estimate. Implementation of the estimation strategy is quite simple as it can rely on standard software packages for generalized additive models. A generalized cross validation procedure is suggested in order to handle the bias-variance trade-off. Theoretical properties of the proposed method are derived and simulations show the performance of this estimator in a wide range of cases. An application to data sets on city sizes, facing the debated issue of distinguishing Pareto-type tails from Log-normal tails, illustrates how the proposed method works in practice.
