Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – August 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 August 2020.

In August 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled about €3.3 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of general government debt securities, in €3.1 billion. The net issues of equity securities by non-financial corporations sector amounted to €1.1 billion, which were partially offset by negative net issues of debt securities of €0.8 billion (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €474.3 billion, €2.2 billion more than in July (Chart 3). This increase was chiefly due to the positive net issues of general government debt securities and non-financial corporations shares, which were partially compensated by a reduction in the market value of debt securities issued by general government (Chart 4).
