_BACKGROUND

Back in the 90s, we saw the fascinating evolvement of digitalization and technology and how it would change the economy and society. At that time, our founder was the responsible politician for privatising the telecoms and post markets and gave a boost to digital mobile communication and cable infrastructure. Job well done.

25 years later, Digital is in our DNA. SSP adopts a long-term, trusted client relationship model. Rather than being corporate supermarket salesmen with pressure to produce fees, SSP is a true, equity-owning partnership, built on trust and a shared transaction history, focused on providing the highest-quality advice to our long-term relationships.

_DEAL EXECUTION TEAM

The leadership and advisory team at SSP have worked at high levels within the sector and have invested their own money in digital companies. This is what sets us apart, we’ve been there, done it and really know how to realise value effectively. We are supported by an exceptional team of analysts and business support personnel.
