Over the past five years, the professionals of SSG have successfully completed over 150 investment banking assignments on behalf of clients facing challenging situations in North America, Mexico and Europe. Many of these clients faced operational and/or financial problems, were in the process of turnarounds, or were considering or in the midst of bankruptcy reorganizations.
SSG's origins date back to 1993, when one of its partners was a co-founder of the Special Situations Group at Berwind Financial in Philadelphia. A New York office was opened four years later in 1997. In December 2001, four principals led the buyout of the Special Situations Group, and a Cleveland office was added in early 2004. In 2006 SSG had the opportunity to sell the firm to NatCity Investments, Inc., and became the Special Situations Group of National City Investment Banking. On May 1, 2009 the five senior investment bankers responsible for managing the Special Situations Group of National City Investment Banking formed SSG Capital Advisors, LLC and acquired the Special Situations Group from NatCity.
