As the dual to the Bayes estimators with respect to the asymmetric LINEX loss, it is shown that the best LINEX-unbiased estimators dominate the corresponding UMVU estimators of the location parameter of a location family. It is proved that these estimators are minimax and generalized Bayes. Other optimal properties are also discussed.
