Prash Puspanathan

Prash Puspanathan

Dr Prash is the CEO of Caleb & Brown, Australia's first dedicated Cryptocurrency brokerage. A medical doctor by training, Dr Prash  first became interested in Cryptocurrencies via his libertarian roots. He started Caleb & Brown to bridge a gap in the market, the lack of a trusted, well-supported and secure on-ramp to allow investors large volume access to the Crypto market in a manner more akin to traditional financial services. He was voted Young Executive of the Year by the Australia wide Indian Executive Council in 2018.

Caleb & Brown provides each client with a personal broker to handle all their Cryptocurrency investment needs from education, wallet setup and same-day large volume purchases to ongoing market analysis, in-house Crypto tax consultancy and investment via SMSF. In recognition of this personalised model, Caleb & Brown was awarded Fintech Startup of the Year 2018 by the Stockbrokers and Financial Advisors Association.
