Kenyon’s property experience has seen him learn from some of London’s largest property development companies and bring this much needed expertise to the New Zealand market.
Kenyon’s mission is to build 1,000 apartments and houses each year and over the next decade to establish a $5 billion Build-To-Rent portfolio. Kenyon Clarke’s family currently own New Zealand’s largest Build-To-Rent investment portfolio. Kenyon’s experience as a seasoned investor forms the foundation of Du Val’s investment and development thesis.

As New Zealand’s most active apartment developer, Kenyon is passionate about regeneration and halting urban sprawl. To do this, Du Val specialise in building brand new, institutional-grade residential property underpinned by proximity to key infrastructure,

He is a sought after commentator and public speaker with a broad base of knowledge accumulated over a 24-year career which saw him lose $120m in 2008 and recover to build Du Val into a $790m business by 2020.

He is often asked to speak about his personal journey in business and enjoys discussing topics including entrepreneurship, all aspects of property investment and development, the emergence of build-to-rent and buy-to-let sectors in New Zealand, sustainability, urban regeneration, the construction market and personal finance.

He is supported by a team of equally passionate people at Du Val who are committed to helping people improve their financial literacy and create financial resilience through property.
