Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – June 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 June 2020.

In the first half of the year, net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by resident entities totalled €19.9 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of debt securities, mainly on public debt securities (Charts 1 and 2).

The balance of securities issued by residents totalled €467.5 billion, which corresponds to a half-yearly increase of €6.4 billion. This increase was essentially due to the positive net issues of securities, partially compensated by the devaluation of both debt securities and shares (Charts 3 and 4).
