"das breite Anlagepublikum" and "den Aktienbesitz im Publikum streuen"

In your context, "retail" means that the shares are being offered to private or small or individual investors (Die Anteile werden an Privatanleger oder Kleinanleger oder einzelne Anleger oder das bereite Anlagepublikum angeboten.), as well as or rather than being (only) offered to large investors who would try to resell them or perhaps hold them in large blocks in order to exercise control of the offering corporation. The corporation probably wants to spread shareholdings amongst the general public.

For "retail offering", you could construct something from "den Aktienbesitz im Publikum streuen".

"das breite Anlagepublikum" and "den Aktienbesitz im Publikum streuen" are from Zahn
