This investment banker backs Duterte’s critique of God, creation
This banker found a new reason to support the President.
President Rodrigo Duterte shook feathers as he went to spew a series of tirades against God and the Catholic Church.
But for investment banker Stephen “Steve” CuUnjieng, it’s a welcome surprise. The multimillionaire said he is actually in awe and thankful to find an unlikely ally in Duterte when it comes to debunking religious myths.
“I never thought I would see a Philippine president take on the Church and now even better the ridiculous creation story in my lifetime. Bravo,” CuUnjieng was quoted by Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao.
A lawyer and alumnus of the Ateneo de Manila University, CuUnjieng is a veteran banker and is currently chairman of Evercore Asia Limited.
