Syndicate members are commercial or investment banks responsible for underwriting IPO's. Syndicate members are usually registered with SEBI or registered as brokers with BSE / NSE Stock Exchanges.

They work as intermediaries for Issuer Company and the buyers of the IPO stocks. Investors submit their bids for IPO shares through Syndicate Members appointed by the Issuer Company. They are also known as 'The Members of the Syndicate'.

  • Name of the investor.
