Left Placement

in a Securities offering, the Lead Managing Underwriter receives Left Placement — meaning its name is placed on the left of the top line of the list of Underwriters on the back and front cover of the Prospectus (or for a 144A Offering, the list of Initial Purchasers on the covers of the Offering Memorandum). Getting Left Placement is a big deal because such placement means the bank will serve as Lead Managing Underwriter.
