We examine the effect of corporate cash holding on idiosyncratic risk. We find that corporate cash holding in China is positively associated with idiosyncratic risk. The association is robust to several robustness checks, including adopting an alternative method, fixed-effects model, and the inclusion of some possibly omitted variables. Further analyses demonstrate that the impact of corporate cash holding on idiosyncratic risk is more pronounced in firms that are non-SOEs, non-Big 4 auditors, having lower institutional shareholdings, and a lower growth rate. Our research enriches the role of corporate cash holding in corporate governance.
