A Unique Service Company
American Express is the only company with a strong, global presence across the entire payments chain.
We are the world’s largest card issuer, the premium network for high-spending cardmembers, a processor of millions of transactions daily, and a partner that provides business-building services to a worldwide merchant base.
Having this horizontal scale across payments gives us diverse opportunities to grow our business and drive innovation in the marketplace. It’s also a gateway to a broader array of services that further differentiate American Express.
Our direct relationships with many millions of consumers, businesses and merchants worldwide -- combined with our leading-edge marketing, information management and rewards capabilities -- enable us to offer an array of valuable services that enrich lives, build business success, encourage financial responsibility, and create communities of people with common interests.
This is what makes American Express a unique, and uniquely powerful, services company.
