Commercial banks are the core of the financial system, and their risk-bearing capacity is an important guarantee to prevent and resolve systemic financial risks. Taking the Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listed commercial banks from 2007 to 2018 as a sample, the intermediary effect analysis method is used to empirically study the relationship between commercial bank financial innovation, capital buffers and risk-taking. Research findings: 1.Financial innovation reduces the capital buffer of commercial banks and increases the risk-taking of commercial banks. 2.The capital buffer plays a significant intermediary role in the impact of financial innovation on commercial banks' risk-taking. 3.The governance of the professional committees in the board of directors plays a role in regulating the intermediary effect of capital buffers and helps reduce commercial banks' risk exposure.
