"lead manager" or in German: "Konsortialführer", "konsortialführende Bank" or "Konsortialführerin"


Explanation:
"lead manager" or "lead bank" or "syndicate leader" are English expressions that have been "eingeGermaned". Real German German terms are "Konsortialführer" or "konsortialführende Bank" or "Konsortialführerin".

This particular bank is the appointed leader or manager of a group (syndicate or Konsotium) of banks that together take the responsibility for the Initial Public Offering of a new corporation.

More terminology on this subject is available in Zahn – Wörterbuch Bank- und Börsenwesen, Dietl/Lorenz – Wörterbuch für Recht, Wirtschaft und Politik, and Hamblock/Wessels – Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch.
