Bill Browder - Monday, September 23rd
On September 23rd, Trinity SMF had the honour of Bill Browder visiting as part of our annual Speaker Series and presenting him with the Outstanding Contribution to Finance Award.
Bill Browder is the founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, which was the investment adviser to the largest foreign investment fund in Russia until 2005, when Bill was denied entry to the country and declared a “threat to national security” as a result of his battle against corporate corruption.
It was a great privilege to hear about his fight against corruption and the violation of human rights to ensure justice prevails for Sergei Magnitsky.
