Bill Browder

One man's war against Putin

Browder has devoted much of the past two decades to exposing Vladimir Putin’s campaign to steal and launder hundreds of billions of dollars from Russia, killing anyone who stands in his way. Bill’s courage and dogged determination are both humbling and truly inspirational. He has chronicled this remarkable journey in two books, Red Notice (2015) and Freezing Order (2022), both gripping reads.

Bill Browder
Founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, author

Bill, founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005, when he was denied entry to the country for exposing corruption in Russian state-owned companies. In 2009 his Russian lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, was killed in a Moscow prison after uncovering and exposing a US$230 million fraud committed by Russian government officials. Since Sergei’s murder, Browder’s advocacy has led to the passage of the Magnitsky Act in 34 countries. These laws have the power to sanction human rights abusers and kleptocrats all around the world, imposing visa bans and asset freezes.
