Jordan Belfort Net Worth
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his massive fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
The story behind this Academy Award nominated film is so much bigger than any movie can begin to depict. The story of a young up and coming stock broker turned into a leviathan of power and control.
In the early 1990s, Belfort formed his trading company, Stratton Oakmont. His company took off right from the gate. Belfort surrounded himself with sycophantic friends and family members to insulate his "pump and dump" trading tactics from potential whistle blowers. This close-knit group of upper managers who were were willing to keep the firm's secrets.
The firm began as an upright venture, but with the goal to make as much money as possible, as quickly as possible, but then his tactics quickly took a nosedive.

The Sopranos writers did an episode in Season 2 inspired by Belfort's shenanigans... there was also another film called Boiler Room that was based on Belfort's criminal behavior.
Jordan is on the short side at 5'7 and always wore lifts in his shoes, sprayed windex on his food in the refridgerator so he wouldn't eat it and gain weight... really fits the definition Sociopathic/Narcissistic Personality disorder
