This paper discusses the relationship between expected volatility and liquidity preferences of open-end mutual fund. I use actively managed stock open-end mutual funds in Chinese market for empirical analysis and found that expected volatility is expected to affect liquidity preferences of mutual fund; not only that, managers will be expected to hold more liquidity assets in their portfolio when market fluctuates.
