- This paper aims to shed light on the effect of a firm's geographic location on its over-investment by using different location variables based on a sample of 1936 Chinese listed firms spanning from 2007 to 2016. We find that remotely located firms have higher level of over-investment. Remotely located firms with more free cash flow face severer over-investment problem. In further research, we examine whether institutional investors can mitigate remote firms' over-investment. However, we find that institutional investors have no governance effect on remote firms' over-investment.
