Platform KYC360 AML Talk Show hosted by Martin Woods

In this series of monthly podcasts, our host Martin Woods will interview key figures in the world of financial crime prevention and examine successes and failures in the global fight against money laundering and related crimes including drug trafficking, bribery and corruption, sanctions evasion, human trafficking and tax evasion.

Bill Browder is a an American-born British financier and political activist. For the past several years, he has led an international campaign to expose corruption and human-rights abuses in Russia. His efforts culminated with the 2012 passage of the Magnitsky Act, which forbids “gross abusers” of rights in Russia from banking in or visiting the United States. The Act is named after Browder’s lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, a whistleblower who died in a Moscow prison in 2009. In this wide ranging interview Martin Woods talks to him about the scourge of corruption and money laundering through financial institutions and what can be done to stop it.

In a recent interview for KYC360’s AML Talk Show, Bill Browder spoke to host Martin Woods about his efforts to fight money laundering and corruption following the death of his Muscovite attorney Sergei Magnitsky in 2009. Russian officials intentionally allowed the then-ailing Magnitsky to die in a Moscow jail after he blew the whistle on a massive tax scheme implicating high-ranking government employees, according to Browder and US officials. The funds laundered from the tax fraud found their way into Scandinavian financial institutions, including Danske Bank, which admitted in 2018 that it may have processed up to €200 billion in suspicious transactions, according to Browder, who is the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management.
