He operated a sea-food and meat business at a young age. In 1987, he put his selling expertise to use commencing his work in a brokerage firm, in 1987.
He then started running his own investment company called ‘Stratton Oakmont’ and quickly became rich.
In 1992, the USA ‘Securities and Exchange Commission’ claimed that the devious stock operation of ‘Stratton Oakmont’ had been manipulating stock prices.
In the legal suit that followed, Jordan was asked by the court to pay back an amount of $110.4 million. While in prison, Belfort was urged by his cellmate, Tommy Chang,
to pen down his colorful experiences as a stockbroker.
In addition to delivering seminars, Belfort has been a consultant in over 50 public companies and is known for his writings in several major
magazines and newspapers in the world, such as ‘Business Week’, ‘Forbes’, ‘The New York Times’, ‘The London Times’, ‘The Los Angeles Times’ and ‘The Herald Tribune’ and many others.
Jordan published his international bestselling memoir titled ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ in 2008 where he used his nickname as the memoir’s title.
The book unfolds his triumph at the stock market and then his massive crash in the world of finance.
The former stock-broker also released another memoir in the following year, titled ‘Catching the Wolf of Wall Street’,
that explored his life after he was arrested.
His books have been translated in 18 languages and have been published in over 40 countries.
Jordan Belort's memoir is the source for a film made by Martin Scorsese titled ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’,
which saw Leonardo Di Caprio playing the lead role.
