Who is Jordan Belfort’s fiancé Anne Koppe?
Anne Koppe was born in 1967 in the USA, so is now 52 years-old and a businesswoman who gained fame when she became the fiancé of former stockbroker, motivational speaker and author Jordan Belfort, a businessman who became notorious for his long-running fraud schemes and related crimes in connection with stock-market manipulation, which enabled him to allegedly steal more than $200 million from his investors and fuel his lavish lifestyle. After spending almost two years in prison, Belfort published a memoir entitled “The Wolf of Wall Street”, which was later turned into a blockbuster movie of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie. The movie’s huge success put the lives of Jordan and Anne into the limelight.
Anne Koppe Wiki Bio: Early Life, Family, Education
Even though her exact birth date and location are unknown, we do know that Koppe was raised by her parents Helen and Bruce and grew up in California, where she attended Marin Catholic High School in Kentfield. Having matriculated she enrolled at the University of San Diego, and four years later graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.
Marriage to Former Stockbroker Jordan Belfort
Anne Koppe first made the headlines after the premiere of Martin Scorcese’s movie “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Even though Koppe’s fiancé Jordan Belfort was well known among stockbrokers and people familiar with his previous on-goings on Wall Street, he gained international fame after the blockbuster movie that portrayed his wrongdoings and lavish, drug-fueled lifestyle came out in 2013. The movie was a huge international hit, earning almost $400 million at the box office, and attracted people interested in what was going on with Jordan Belfort’s current life, seeing that the movie depicts his stock market frauds in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Jordan Belfort’s Stock Trading Fraud
Still in his 20s, Jordan Belfort founded Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in 1989 that marketed penny stocks, and with the so called “pump and dump” type of stock sales, defrauded innumerable investors. Belfort and his associates would artificially inflate the price of owned stocks through false and misleading positive statements, in order to sell the cheaply purchased stock at a much higher price. Over the years, he developed such a successful fraud scheme that Stratton Oakmont employed over 1,000 stockbrokers at one point and was estimated to be involved in stock issues worth more than $1 billion. Belfort himself managed to acquire a net worth of $200 million, all at the expense of hundreds of big and small investors he tricked and mislead. His fraudulent ways were discovered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and in 1999 he was convicted of securities fraud and money laundering and sentenced to four years in jail.
Release from Jail and “The Wolf of Wall Street”
Belfort met Anne Koppe after he was released from jail having served 22 months of his four year sentence. During his time in jail, he shared a cell with actor, writer and musician Tommy Chong, who talked him into writing his memoir. Following his release, he published his memoir under the title “The Wolf of Wall Street” in 2007, and it was at this time that he met his future fiancé Anne Koppe. The two started dating in 2008 and have stayed together since. Belfort’s book was a success and helped to reinvigorate his life and transition his career into motivational speaking. He founded the company “Global Motivation Inc.” through which he runs his speaking engagements.

Anne Koppe’s Support
It wasn’t easy for the convicted fraudster to turn his life around and start again from the beginning. His notoriety followed him everywhere he went, and a lot of people thought that he should’ve been punished more severely. Koppe, his girlfriend at the time, provided much needed support for Belfort, particularly on her Facebook account, arguing against critics who claimed he shouldn’t be allowed to profit from his illegal dealings. Koppe justified Belfort’s scamming years as ‘a mistake made, that let’s face it, was going on just about everywhere on Wall Street, in a juvenile time in your life where instant gratification seemed more important than delayed honest wealth’. After Belfort’s motivational speaking career took off, Anne helped manage his “Global Motivation Inc.” company, and now runs half of the operations regarding his motivational speaking tours and similar engagements.
Jordan and Anne became engaged in 2015 after several years of dating. The two set up their new home in Brisbane, Australia, from which they currently run their business. Anne has a son from her previous marriage named Bowen Boullianne. After their engagement, Jordan adopted Bowen who is currently 20 years old and studying Business at Bond University on Australia’s Gold Coast. Anne’s son and Jordan’s stepson stated that he decided to study business because ‘growing up around my stepfather I saw what it was like to be an entrepreneur at the highest level’.
