From the South Bronx projects to the boardroom at only nineteen years old, Cin Fabré ran with the wolves of Wall Street.

Growing up, Cin Fabré didn’t know anything about the stock market. But she learned how to hustle from her immigrant parents, saving money so that one day she could escape her abusive father and poverty in the Bronx.

Through a tip from a friend, Cin pushed her way into brokerage firm VTR Capital, an offshoot of Stratton Oakmont, the company where the Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort, had reigned. She was shocked to find an army of young workers – mostly Black and Brown – with no real prospects for promotion, sitting at phones doing the drudge work of finding investment leads for white male brokers. But she knew she would do whatever she had to be successful.

Pulling back the curtain, Wolf Hustle reveals how Cin worked gruelling hours, ascending from cold caller to stockbroker, becoming the only Black woman to do so at her firm. She discloses the excesses of 1990s Wall Street – the strip clubs, the Hamptons parties, the Gucci shopping sprees – while revelling in the thrill of making money.

From landing clients worth hundreds of millions to gaining, losing, then gaining back fortunes in seconds, Cin examines her years trading frantically and hustling successfully, grappling with what it takes to build a rich life, and, ultimately, beating Wall Street at its own game.
