Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - February 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 February 2019.

In February 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents reached €1.2 billion. This amount is accounted for by positive net issues of debt securities by the general government (government debt securities and shares by public corporations), worth €2.1 billion, partly offset by negative net issues of securities by the financial sector, to the amount of €1.0 billion (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €463.1 billion, up by €3.4 billion from January (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).
