Summary of Red Notice
A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice
From RED NOTICE: A TRUE STORY OF HIGH FINANCE, MURDER, AND ONE MAN'S FIGHT FOR JUSTICE by Bill Vrowder. Copyright © 2015 by Hermitage Media Limited. Reprinted by permission of Simon & Schuster, Inc.
A bold American hedge fund manager made big bucks in Russia, but he learned that fighting corruption exacts a heavy toll.
Hedge fund manager Bill Browder lived in Moscow for years and made huge returns, lost it all in the ruble crisis in 1998 and made much of it back again investing in the Gazprom oil company. When he revealed the way Russian fat cats looted Gazprom, oligarchs and crooked bureaucrats who didn’t take kindly to criticism from a foreigner forced him out of the country. Authorities imprisoned Browder’s Russian attorney, and police beat the lawyer to death. This fascinating tale is one-sided, but readers who’ve followed Russia’s brutal kleptocracy will find Browder credible. getAbstract recommends his saga – nonfiction that reads like a thriller – to multinational managers and investors seeking insight into an important but troubled part of the world.
In this summary, you will learn
- How hedge fund manager Bill Browder profited in Russia,
- How Browder opposed the oligarchs and temporarily won Vladimir Putin’s support,
- Why Russia expelled him, and
- How Russian authorities arrested and killed Browder’s attorney.
