Lead Manager/Underwriter

   The institution awarded the mandate by a borrower to raise money via a bond or loan or share issue. The lead manager guarantees the liquidity of the deal, arranges the syndication of the issue and undertakes a major underwriting and distribution commitment. For bonds or loans, the lead manager forms a syndicate of co-lead managers, co-managers and underwriters. For share issues the underwriters guarantee to sell a certain number of shares at a certain price.
