William Felix Browder is an American-born British financier and political activist.[1] Prior to 2005, Browder, through Hermitage Capital Management, co-founded by Edmond Safra, was at one point the largest foreign investor in Russia. He was barred from entering Russia in 2005, [2] and has actively worked for regime change since then.

The 2015 deposition of William F. Browder,[3] which he was subpoenaed to by lawyers representing Russian businessmen whose assets were restricted by the Magnitsky Act. Seven hours of "I don't know", "I don't remember" (but) "I trust my team to put together valid information".[4][5]
In January 2019, RT put Bill Browder as #9 on their 2018 list of Russophobes, commenting "Back when he was making cash, Browder was extremely friendly to anyone who spoke Russian and had a ruble to invest. Since being accused of tax fraud in Russia, he has rebranded himself as “Putin's number-one enemy."[6]

Career

Browder started his career in the Eastern European practice of the Boston Consulting Group in London[7], then worked as the investment manager for crook and Israeli spy Robert Maxwell, in 1991, shortly before Maxwell’s untimely death. After that, he managed the Russian proprietary investments desk at Salomon Brothers.[8] Using startup seed money given him by Republic Bank of New York owner Edmond Safra, Browder’s started Hermitage Capital Management in Moscow. Safra also died mysteriously in a fire at his home.[9]

“But we are sitting here in an audience of international investors. Everyone sitting here watching all of this and wondering, is Russia a good place or a bad place to invest? And Mr Ryzhkov, I believe you when you say there's freedom of the press. Because I used the press in all sorts of corporate governance fights, attacking all sorts of people, including government officials and there's never been any recourse coming back to me. And I also believe that Russia has a democratic process that is not going to go away.”
Bill Browder (January 28, 2005)  [10]
