How to get there

In the 1990s, alongside Edmond Safra, Bill Browder set up Hermitage Capital Management, the largest foreign investment fund in Russia. In 2005, he was denied entry to the country and declared a "threat to national security" as a result of his battle against corporate corruption. After Mr Browder's expulsion, the Russian authorities raided his offices and seized his investment companies. In 2009, Sergei Magnitsky, the lawyer in charge of investigating this crime, was arrested and died in custody under suspicious conditions.

On Friday, he will be talking about his personal experience in Russia at the Hermitage Capital Management, the Magnitsky case, as well as his recently published book Red Notice: How I became Putin's No.1 Enemy. He will also be sharing his thoughts on current political and economic developments in Russia as well as his outlook for the future.
