NEW YORK – Guggenheim Securities today announced the hiring of an eight member investment banking team led by Senior Managing Director James D. Decker.

This addition affirms Guggenheim's commitment to the middle market and broadens the firm's existing capabilities in M&A, financial restructuring and financing.

In addition to Mr. Decker, the team includes Managing Directors Alex Fisch and Jay Jacquin and Vice President James Hadfield. Working together for the past decade, the team has completed more than 100 company and creditor assignments and restructured approximately $30 billion of debt pursuant to both in-court and out-of-court transactions.

Schwartz, Executive Chairman of Guggenheim Partners and head of Guggenheim Securities.
