'I’ll make this year more than I ever made in my best year as a broker'.

Jordan Belfort, whose memoir The Wolf of Wall Street was turned into a film by Martin Scorsese, expects to earn more than he made as a stockbroker this year, allowing him to repay the victims of his financial fraud.

'I’ll make this year more than I ever made in my best year as a broker', Belfort told a conference in Dubai today. 'My goal is to make north of a $100m so I am paying back everyone this year'.

Bloomberg News reports that Belfort, a motivational speaker, will use his earnings from a 45-city speaking tour in the U.S. to repay about $50m to investors. That was his share of the fine, he said.

U.S. stockbroker Belfort spent 22 months in jail for money laundering and securities fraud in the 1990s after his Stratton Oakmont defrauded investors out of more than $200m. That story was retold last year in a blockbuster film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
