Dekel Capital  Sets Its Sights on Expansion
Dekel funded this planned project in San Diego.

Century City-based Dekel Capital Inc. has added a nationally focused vice president to its team and plans to increase its capital-raising efforts beyond Southern California.

Matin Roshan joined the real estate merchant bank this month after four years at Quantum Capital Partners, where he originated more than $400 million in commercial real estate debt. He has extensive experience in securing financing on a wide variety of complex real estate transactions, according to an August 15 announcement from the company, including the “acquisition, refinancing, recapitalization, and the adaptive reuse of individual assets and portfolios in hospitality, industrial, multifamily, office and retail.”

“As an experienced investment professional, Matin will play an important role in Dekel’s future as we enter the next phase of growth,” said Dekel Capital Principal Shlomi Ronen in an accompanying statement. “While our clients have been primarily Southern California based, Matin’s clientele are spread throughout the country, so his expanded Rolodex of clients will dovetail well into our capital raising efforts.”

Speaking to the Business Journal on August 18, Ronen said Roshan’s experience would be a boon for the traditionally L.A.-focused Dekel. The firm’s raises over the last two years have been split nearly evenly between properties in and outside California, including in Long Beach, Glendale, San Diego, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

“Businesses in Southern California have historically been younger, hungrier, and more tech-savvy,” said Ronen. “But Los Angeles investors have been going national for quite a while, and COVID only accelerated that trend.”

Ronen said Roshan would focus on originating, structuring and executing debt and equity transactions across all property types.

“He has access to outside markets that will help us connect with sponsors,” said Ronen.
Roshan was born and raised in Los Angeles. He earned a B.S. in biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and earned a Certificate in Real Estate from UCLA.
