What Does "Lead Left" Mean?

“Lead Left” is not a political reference. From the early days of investment banking, firms publicized their roles in securities offerings. Below the issue description, the lead underwriter was listed first, at the left margin of these 'tombstone' ads. The other syndicate members, ranked by underwriting size, were listed to the right. The leveraged loan market adopted the terminology; the “lead left” is the bank responsible for the underwriting and syndication of a senior credit facility. Hence, the term denotes a position of authority and responsibility.
