Statistical Press Release - Securities issues – September 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 September 2020.

In September 2020 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by residents were negative by about €0.6 billion. This figure results mainly from negative net issues of non-financial corporation debt securities, by €0.5 billion. The net issues of government debt securities were approximately zero, as a result of gross issues of long term debt by €0.9 billion and short term debt amortizations of identical amount. (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €472.8 billion, €1.5 billion less than in August (Chart 3). This decrease was chiefly due to a decrease in the market value of non-financial corporation shares, which was partially compensated by an increase in the market value of debt securities issued by general government (Chart 4).
