Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - August 2018

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 August 2018.

In August 2018 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled €1.0 billion. This amount is mainly accounted for by positive net issues of debt securities, worth €0.9 billion (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €463.0 billion (Chart 3), down by €2.4 billion from July 2018. This decrease was chiefly due to the devaluation of debt securities issued by the general government and shares issued by non-financial corporations (Chart 4).
