Guest Speakers

Kelvin Davidson
Chief Property Economist

Kelvin joined CoreLogic in March 2018 as Senior Research Analyst, before moving into his current role of Chief Economist. He brings with him a wealth of experience, having spent 15 years working largely in private sector economic consultancies in both New Zealand and the UK. Because of this Kelvin is well practised in applying macroeconomic trends and data to the property market, both residential and commercial.

In his role with CoreLogic Kelvin’s focus is on keeping up to date with what’s going on in the property market and continually finding different ways for viewing and interpreting it. Kelvin’s economics background means that he knows his way around a spreadsheet, but more importantly he always puts more emphasis on providing the key insights and telling a story, whether his audience be clients or the media.

Kelvin holds a Bachelor of Commerce with Honours majoring in Economics from University of Canterbury.
