Summary/Abstract: The article identified determinants of the corporate investment diversification in Poland, ie. in investment property or intangible assets and their dependence on corporate savings. The analysis was conducted on unbalanced panel data of individual companies employing at least 10 workers contained in the annual reports of Central Statistical Office (F-02) from the years 1995-2012. The parameters used to estimate the system GMM [Generalised Methods of Moments]. Also included is a robust variance-covariance matrix. The obtained results allow to conclude that the increase in liquid reserves (savings) increases the investment diversification spending (in real estate and intangible assets). A positive correlation was obtained in diversified investments of the real effective exchange rate based on CPI and growth opportunities. This may be due to the anti-inflationary role of investment in real estate, as well as the improvement of the situation of exporters of services (investing in intangible assets), granting licenses to foreign companies on their own technology or software due to the appreciation of the exchange rate.
