Key points for this month

  • The ECB's balance sheet is now equivalent to 54% of euro area GDP compared to 39% at the start of the year.
  • In August, the ECB reduces its purchases to €59bn on PEPP and €19bn on APP. This slowdown could be explained by the summer seasonality.
  • PEPP: the total net purchases under PEPP amount to €500bn since the launch of the program in March, out of an €1350bn envelope that could be used until end of June 2021. No granular details for PEPP were available in this release, as details on the PEPP composition (private/public or jurisdiction) are published on a bimonthly basis and the next one will be in early October.
  •  APP purchase in august decreased in comparison previous months
    • In August, ECB net asset purchases reached €19bn under APP.

    • Between March and August, the ECB has already used around €90bn euros of the temporary envelope of additional net purchases of €120bn that will end on December 31, 2020.
    • Deviation of PSPP purchases from capital key proportions was in favor of Supranational and Germany against Spain, Italy.
