Bill Browder | The Curious Worldview Podcast #111

The following is a conversation with the CEO and Founder of the Hermitage Fund, Bill Browder. The Hermitage Fund was at one time, the largest source of western capital in Russia and in 1997 the best performing fund in the world.

Bill is also one of the sharpest thorns in the Russian oligarch’s side. He lobbied for a law that authorises the U.S. government to sanction foreign government officials worldwide who are deemed to be human rights offenders and freeze their assets, this was named the Magntizky Act after his former lawyer Sergei Magnitzky who was tortured and murdered in a Russian prison.

Bill Browder is the author of both Red Notice, and Freezing Order… which are the catalyst for this chat.
