In his “X” account, Belfort expressed: “I just returned from Argentina and, as always, I am absolutely impressed! A country so promising and with infinite possibilities I’m already planning my next trip back!”

But that was not all: Belfort posted a video where he acknowledges that he loves the country. “I love Argentina, it’s a very interesting country, but in the past, the government really got it into a mess. Hopeful I believe that everything has changed. Everything is in its favor: it has great people, educated people, natural resources. I have the entire Argentine technical team, some of the best programmers and workers. A friend of mine has a polo ranch just outside of Buenos Aires. Besides my wife is from Córdoba, so I spent a lot of time in Córdoba. So yes, I love Argentina.”

Who is Jordan Belfort

Belfort was born in New York in 1962 and began his career in the financial world as a stock market operator in the 1990s. Shortly after starting his activity he founded his own firm, Stratton Oakmont, which became the core of one of the largest securities scams in American history. Through unethical and deceptive practices, Belfort and his firm amassed a fortune, but at enormous moral and legal cost.

Accused in 1998 of fraud, money laundering and stock market manipulation, after collaborating with the FBI, he was imprisoned in federal prison for 22 months convicted of “pump and dump (“pump and dump”), a form of stock fraud, which involves the holder of a share, who knows of its poor future potential and uses disinformation campaigns to overvalue said asset or uses his influence in the media to attract new investors , which artificially raise its price.

This maneuver resulted in a loss of US$200 million for investors. And Belfort had to compensate its former clients with US$110.4 million.

He met Tommy Chong in prison, who encouraged him to write his stories and publish them. Two films originated from these publications: “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Catching the Wolf of Wall Street.” After his release from prison, his friendship continued.

How did Belfort direct his life after prison?

He became a motivational speaker and sales consultant, using his experience to teach others about business ethics and how to avoid the mistakes he made.

In his conferences and seminars, Belfort emphasizes – as he publicly announces – the “importance of integrity and responsibility in business. Through his own story, he illustrates the destructive consequences of greed and misconduct, offering a unique perspective on how to build sustainable and ethical businesses.”

These days Belfort, 61 years old, is a consultant and sales consultant and charges tens of thousands of dollars to give private sessions.
