In what is a newly created role, Mrozinski will report to Douglas Morton, DeutscheÆs head of REGAL and head of M&A, Asia. His new post will include responsibility for the origination and execution of financial activities for the real estate, gaming and lodging sectors in Asia.
According to Deutsche, his appointment comes in response to increased business opportunities in Asia from all three sectors. Deutsche has already been very successful at capturing business from the emergent gaming sector in Macau and hopes to capitalise on this further.
Says Morton, "Matthew brings a wealth of experience across the corporate finance spectrum ranging from M&A, leveraged finance, distressed assets and private placements. His appointment underscores Deutsche Bank's commitment to expand our franchise in these growing industry sectors."
Mrozinski shifts to Deutsche from Colony Capital Asia, a private international investment firm that focuses on real estate-related assets investment. At Capital, Mrozinski was vice president of acquisition and head of Asia-Pacific capital formation.
Prior to this position, he also honed his skills at JPMorgan Securities in New York on the debt side and in Hong Kong in private equity and private placements in China.

Financials and healthcare have been spotted as promising sectors, while several tech IPOs are on the way, including a $2.2 billion fintech firm and a GIC-backed e-commerce startup.
A strong recovery in the Asia Pacific private capital markets in 2021 sets up favourable hiring and compensation trends.
