The Wolf of Wall Street — Truth or Fiction?
“You know who didn’t have any bad years? Bernie Madoff — until he got caught.” — Ken Fisher
The new Martin Scorsese film “The Wolf of Wall Street” is all the rage these days. I refuse to see the film (which I understand holds the world’s record for gratuitous use of the F-bomb, more than 500 times). But my friend, hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci, has viewed the film, and he told me he disliked the way Wall Street is portrayed. “The actors celebrated thievery,” my friend said.
Anthony, who heads the Skybridge hedge fund, hosts the SALT (SkyBridge Alternatives) Conference every year in Las Vegas (highly recommended). He also wrote an excellent book a few years ago called “Goodbye Gordon Gekko: How to Find Your Fortune Without Losing Your Soul,” referring to the infamous character of the first financial assault film, “Wall Street” with Michael Douglas. You can buy his book from Amazon about maintaining ethics while working on Wall Street.
