Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - November 2018

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 November 2018.

In November 2018 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled -€1.3 billion. This amount is mainly accounted for by negative net issues of debt securities by financial corporations, worth €1.2 billion (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €453.1 billion, decreasing by €3.9 billion from October 2018 (Chart 3). In addition to negative net issues in November, this decrease was mainly due to the devaluation of listed shares issued by non-financial corporations, which has been occurring since July 2018 (Chart 4).
