The estimation of linearized drift for stochastic differential equations with equilibrium points is considered. It is proved that the linearized drift matrix can be estimated efficiently if the initial condition for the system is chosen close enough to the equilibrium point. Some bounds for initial conditions providing the asymptotical efficiency of estimators are found.
