According to the ICMA Handbook; Bookrunner/Dealer is a firm - part of a group - taking the most senior role, solely or jointly, in managing and underwriting a primary offer. Bookrunning is construed accordingly.
The Bookrunner/Dealer is the main underwriter in the issuance of new equity or debt securities. They are in charge of and “run” the books of investor interest, commitments, allotments and retentions.
When more than one bookrunner manages a security issue, the involved parties are called “Joint Bookrunners.”
