Jordan Belfort, better known as The Wolf Of Wall Street, gave a three-hour seminar in Singapore on Sunday afternoon to an audience of around 400.

The man played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2013 Oscar-nominated film was there to share secrets of success "from both extremes - failure and success", according to the promotional materials.

Belfort fell from his position as one of the wealthiest men on Wall Street to a bunk in a prison cell after he was convicted of securities fraud and money laundering. He was jailed 22 months in 2004.

The seminar was billed A Day With The Wolf Of Wall Street, taking advantage of huge boost in fame given to Belfort by the film.
