DiNapoli Capital Partners
The Firm was established in 2005 by F. Matthew DiNapoli, a founding principal of the successful Maritz-Wolff Hotel Equity Funds. DCP invests in commercial real estate assets on behalf of institutional equity partners, opportunity funds, and high net worth individuals as an operating and managing partner.

DCP’s investments are structured with direct principal involvement and meaningful contributions of its principals’ capital, which effectively aligns the interests of the firm and its capital partners.
Our Investment Approach
DCP's investment parameters are not constrained by product type, geographic market, or size, however the firm predominately focuses on hotel, multifamily, office and senior housing investments. In general, the firm’s investments possess the following characteristics:
- Acquisition price represents a discount to replacement cost
- Transactions contain a value-added component:
- Renovation / re-positioning / brand conversion (hotels)
- Operational improvement (increase revenue channels and streamline expenses)
- Change of use
- Investments are located in vibrant or recovering markets
- Assets are located primarily in the Western U.S. and Rocky Mountain States
- Assets have historically been under-managed
DiNapoli Capital Partners focuses on providing attractive risk-adjusted returns through our value-added approach in primary and secondary markets where DCP has robust market knowledge.
Each investment benefits from continuous hands-on involvement from the Executive Team throughout all phases of the investment cycle.
