Abstract: In this study we investigate the determinants of liquid reserves during the period 1993-2004 in Greek nonfinancial sector. The study is based on an econometric analysis of liquidity management behavior. We employ pa¬nel date techniques to examine the relations between liquid reserves and the factors affect them. It was found that the ratio of cash plus marketa¬ble securities to total assets is negatively correlated with firm size and debt ratio and positively correlated with return on assets, growth options and a measure of cash-flow volatility. We also find that time-varying charac¬teristics drove firms to increase their cash holdings during the period 1999-2001. This finding may support the dominance of the speculative motive when the markets was booming.
