Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – October 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 October 2020.

In October 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents were positive by about €1.3 billion. This figure results mainly from positive net issues of government debt securities, by €1.6 billion. On the other hand, net issues of non-financial corporations were negative, by €0.4 billion. (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €473.4 billion, €0.6 billion more than in September (Chart 3). This increase was chiefly due to the positive net issues and an increase in the market value of government debt securities, which was partially compensated by a decrease in the market value of shares issued by non-financial corporations (Chart 4).
