Dekel Capital aims for expansion

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

Matin Roshan joined real estate merchant banking 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 securing financing for a wide variety of complex real estate transactions, according to an Aug. 15 announcement from the company, including “acquisition, refinancing, recapitalization and adaptive reuse of assets and of individual portfolios in hospitality, industrial, multi-family, 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,” Shlomi Ronen, director of Dekel Capital, said in a statement. “While our clients are primarily based in Southern California, Matin’s client base is spread across the country, so its expanded Rolodex of clients will fit nicely into our capital raising efforts.”

Speaking to the Business Journal on Aug. 18, Ronen said Roshan’s experience would be a boon to traditionally Los Angeles-focused Dekel. The company’s increases over the past two years have been split almost evenly between properties in California and outside, including Long Beach, Glendale, San Diego, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

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

Ronen said Roshan will focus on originating, structuring and executing debt and equity transactions on all types of properties.

“He has access to outside markets that will help us connect with sponsors,” Ronen said.
Roshan was born and raised in Los Angeles. He received a BS in biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a certificate in real estate from UCLA.
