Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – February 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 February 2020.

In February 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled about €2.6 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of debt securities by General Government. (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €457.9 billion, €3.4 billion less than in January (Chart 3). This decrease was chiefly due to the devaluation of listed shares issued by non-financial corporations, partially compensated by positive net issues of debt securities by General Government. (Chart 4).
