Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – May 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 May 2020.

In May 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled about €3.3 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of securities, mostly debt securities, by general government (€2.4 billion) and non-financial corporations (€1.0 billion) (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €472.5 billion, €7.4 billion more than in April (Chart 3). This increase was chiefly due to the net issues of securities and increase on market value of general government debt securities (Chart 4).
