Dez Capital was established in 2013 by three brothers. As founding partners, they set out to invest their own capital as private lenders in the burgeoning Canadian real estate market. Their objective was clear and straightforward – to achieve steady returns based on an acceptable and transparent level of risk.
As entrepreneurs, they had recognized an under-serviced ﬁnancing market in real estate that demanded elevated capital investment and far more responsive service than that offered by traditional lenders. Working primarily in the Golden Horseshoe Area, they built a solid and diversiﬁed portfolio of real estate investments. Over the years, the ﬁrm has achieved sustained growth predicated on data-driven business practices and innovative and streamlined administration.
Dez is known for its fast decision-making and ﬁnancing turnaround, a reputation that is highly valued in real estate construction and development. The founders’ exemplary entrepreneurial and engineering backgrounds have contributed to solid investment decisions, ensuring the highest level of due diligence based on disciplined practices in real estate asset-backed lending.
Dez Capital has invested over $450 million in approximately 557 mortgages since 2014. The total mortgage portfolio managed by Dez is $106 million.
We launched Dez Capital, as a family-run enterprise, to preserve and grow our capital; we were not comfortable with the traditional approach to investment. There was not enough transparency for us and we realized that there were deﬁciencies in the ﬁnancing options available to borrowers. Most traditional lenders Allow the considerable red tape and restrictions to slow them down. We all abide by the same under writing framework, but as a boutique ﬁrm, we provide a fast, no-nonsense turnaround.
The Dez Capital Mortgage Investment Fund: consistent returns, capital preservation.
Buoyed by their own successful track-record, Dez launched the Dez Capital Mortgage Investment Fund in 2017. The fund enables investors to leverage growth in real estate for a projected, stable return with low volatility and capital preservation.
In its history, the firm has experienced consistent growth in assets under management and has gained valuable experience in mortgage origination, data analysis, fund management, governance, administration and investor relations. The ﬁrm has developed and implemented a unique, structured and data-driven approach to seeking investments, evaluating borrowers, projecting areas for real estate development opportunities, and managing and mitigating risk. A transparent, open and communicative way of conducting business, as well as a unique decision-making process have become hallmarks of the ﬁrm’s success.
