Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - April 2019

Today, Banco de Portugal publishes statistics, in Table A.25 of the Statistical Bulletin and in BPstat, on issues of debt securities and shares for April 2019.

In April 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents reached €2.5 billion, mostly accounted for by positive net issues of debt securities by the general government (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €470.8 billion, up by €5.0 billion from March (Chart 3). In addition to the positive net issues mentioned before, this increase was mainly due to the valuation of listed shares issued by non-financial corporations and debt securities issued by the general government (Chart 4).
