But the death of his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, in the hands of the Russians was what changed Browder’s life forever.

BOOK OVERVIEW

Bill Browder creates an air of suspense in describing “red notice” which is an international announcement: “be on the lookout” (BOLO) letting every country’s government know of the arrest of a particular person in at least one national jurisdiction by the International Police (Interpol).

Red Notice narrates the story of being in the Interpol radar intertwined with the world of finance and international politics, corruption, suspense, and betrayal. It gains more attraction because of its nonfictional aspect.

Browder talks about his ancestral origins through Chapters 1 to 7 including his youth and entrance into the world of finance. He reveals here that he is the progeny of remarkably brilliant immigrants from Western Europe.

Chapter 8 and beyond talks about his journey through the Russian economy after its dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s as well as its move towards the capitalist era. This country may well seem to be a place where you “ask a question and get a riddle.” Even in Browder’s view, you will simply end up with more questions. His ancestor’s homeland had led to his relocations to Eastern Europe and his first job in Russia.

As an investment banker, the atmosphere in Russia unraveled as entrepreneurship felt more like a modern Gold Rush—but rather than discovering gold nuggets, the discover the prospects of mining the economic assets of Eastern Europe and Russia.

This “shareholder activism” idea in investing had placed him at odds with the Russian oligarchs, most of whom operated with the corrupt support of the Russian government—stealing 40% of the country’s assets consisting of oil and gas. These oligarchs were only a small number of twenty men who became billionaires overnight.

Publicizing this number of opportunistic oligarchs and corrupt government under Putin, he immediately became Russia’s Public Enemy Number One. He became the CEO of the biggest foreign investor in Russia, but the moment this happened, he was immediately revoked from his position—having Russia see this as a threat to national security. He was expelled from the country, his company assets were seized, and his friends and associates were systematically harassed, imprisoned, or killed.

His lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, mysteriously dies in prison—and this had caused Browder to turn from a high finance maverick into a human rights activist. He pursued the perpetrators who stole his company assets and had caused Magnitsky’s death.

He then shows how the level of corruption in the Russian government had caused the revocation of his visa. He was convicted, tried, and sentenced in absentia for tax fraud, but Interpol rejected these requests by the Russian government for their reason is solely based on politics and not on criminal activity.

Browder’s human rights crusade had been rewarded when the United States and the European Community had passed laws that impose a diplomatic sanction on countries guilty of human rights abuses against political prisoners. Until today, he is still considered an enemy of Russia.

Bill Browder was born in 1964 in the United States and studied in Stanford, later becoming a British citizen. In order to avoid taxes on foreign investment earnings, he gave up his American citizenship. He became the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management which is an investment fund founded with the Jewish billionaire Edmond Safra which mysteriously died in a fire in 1999.

Browder lives in the United Kingdom, married to Sabrina Browder with whom he has a son, Joshua Browder, also an entrepreneur. He later then married Elena Molokova with whom he has two daughters. You may read more about the chronicles of his Russian (mis)adventures on http://www.billbrowder.com.
