BORDEAUX-WEBA UK-based wine investment firm that hired the “Wolf of Wall Street”, Jordan Belfort, to give a motivational seminar has been shut down in the public interest.

As reported by the Mirror, Bordeaux Fine Wines was closed by the High Court on Wednesday following a petition from the UK government’s Insolvency Service.

Law firm Edwin Coe supported the liquidation of the BFW, which took place in December, on behalf of creditors owed in the region of £3m.

Partner David Greene said: “It is clear that the company has very little wine to meet the demands of customers with a shortfall possibly of £12 million.” The Metropolitan Police is currently investigating the matter.

The Mirror reports that Gundlach paid around £50,000 to the so-called “Wolf of Wall Street”, Jordan Belfort, to give staff a two-day motivational seminar.
