Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - March 2019
In March 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents reached €0.6 billion. This amount is accounted for by positive net issues of debt securities by non-financial corporations and the general government, worth €0.7 and €0.8 billion respectively. These amounts were partly offset by negative net issues of debt securities by the financial sector, to the amount of €0.9 billion (Charts 1 and 2).
The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €465.8 billion, up by €2.7 billion from February (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).
