Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - October 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 October 2019.

In October 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents totalled about €2.1 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of general government debt securities (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €463.3 billion, i.e. €2.7 billion more than in September (Chart 3). This increase was due to the net issues mentioned above and to the valuation of listed shares issued by non financial corporations, partly offset by the devaluation of general government debt securities (Chart 4).
