Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – April 2020

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 2020.

In April 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled about €15.6 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of securities, mostly debt securities, by general government (€7.8 billion), financial corporations (€4.6 billion) and non-financial corporations (€ 3.2 billion) (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €465.1 billion, €18.2 billion more than in March (Chart 3). This increase was chiefly due to the net issues of securities from entities of the three sectors of the economy referred above (Chart 4).
