Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - January 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 January 2019.
In January 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents stood in positive territory, at €3.2 billion. This amount is mainly accounted for by positive net issues of debt securities by the general government, worth €3.0 billion (Charts 1 and 2).
The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €459.7 billion, up by €7.7 billion from December 2018 (Chart 3). In addition to the month’s positive net issues, this increase was mainly due to the valuation of listed shares issued by non-financial corporations (Chart 4).
