Even if you don’t know the name Jordan Belfort, you are probably familiar with his character on film. The ruthless former stockbroker was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2013 hit The Wolf of Wall Street.
But for all that he and his victims have revealed about his past schemes, little is known about his family. Jordan Belfort’s kids—or at least one of them—has grown up to become the complete opposite of her dad. Here’s what we know about Chandler Belfort, daughter of the notorious scammer.
Who Is Chandler Belfort?
Chandler Belfort was born on July 29, 1993. She’s the first child and only daughter of Jordan Belfort and Nadine Caridi. Her younger brother is Carter Belfort.
What Does Chandler Belfort Do For A Living?
Now that she’s an adult, Chandler has chosen a life that is far from the hustle of Wall Street. According to her LinkedIn profile, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture from Muhlenberg College. In 2017, she enrolled at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Chandler graduated with a master’s degree in mental health counseling and currently counsels clients for a private practice in New York.
In the meantime, Jordan Belfort has rebranded himself as a motivational speaker. He reportedly charges $30,000–75,000 for speaking appearances and has an estimated net worth of $100 million. However, a 2013 Bloomberg article revealed that at the time, he had only repaid $11.6 million toward his $110.4 million restitution judgment. Belfort also continues to dodge accusations of shady business dealings, leading one to question whether he’s really turned a new leaf.
People might wonder if Chandler’s net worth is impressive and whether the bulk of it comes from her father’s bank account. It’s hard to say, as there are very few details about where their relationship stands. But it’s safe to say that between a respectable career and a dad who was known to once own Coco Chanel’s yacht, she is probably doing more than okay in terms of her finances.
