American Express is a global service company, providing customers with access to products, insights and experiences that enrich lives and build business success. A leader in global payments, American Express is the largest card issuer by purchase volume and operates a worldwide network that processes millions of merchant transactions daily.
The Company has direct relationships with both Card members and merchants. This creates a “closed-loop”, whereby we have access to information at both ends of the Card transaction. This allows American Express to analyse information on Card member spending and build analytical tools that enable us to provide targeted marketing and other information services for merchants, and special offers and services to Card members.
American Express also invites banks and other institutions to issue Cards and, in some countries, act as merchant acquirers on the American Express network. By leveraging our global infrastructure and the appeal of the American Express brand, we broaden our Card member and merchant base for our network worldwide. This strategy enables American Express to enhance its presence in countries where we already do business and expand our presence into new geographic areas.
The Company is equally focused on expanding its alternative mobile and online payment services. For example, in the United States our digital software-based platform Serve® enables consumers to spend, send and receive money, and make person-to-person payments online at serve.com, via mobile phones and at merchants that accept American Express Cards.
American Express has a rich heritage of operating in Europe, reaching as far back as 1891. Today, we are present in over 20 European countries and manage our business principally thorough American Express Payment Services Limited, the legal entity for our merchant acquiring business, and American Express Services Europe Limited, the legal entity for our card issuing business. Both are licensed payment institutions, regulated by the U.K. Financial Services Authority.
Our range of products and services includes:
- Charge and credit card products;
- Expense management products and services;
- Consumer and business travel services;
- Stored value products such as Travellers Cheques and other prepaid products;
- Network services;
- Merchant acquisition and processing, servicing and settlement, and point-of-sale, marketing and information products and services for merchants;
- Market and trend analyses and related consulting services, fraud prevention services, and the design of customised customer loyalty and rewards programmes.

Diners Club International (“DCI”) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DFS Services LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Discover Financial Services (“DFS”). DFS is a publicly-held, U.S. company traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: DFS). DCI is a proprietary, global payment network comprised of 80+ licensee Participants. The Diners Club card is accepted globally and the licensees have operating rights to accept the card in more than 185 countries.
Each Participant operates under a license granted by DCI which may give the Participant the right to issue DCI cards to customers in a specific geographic territory, and/ or to establish and maintain relationships with merchants in order to facilitate acceptance of the Diners Club card. DCI acts as a franchisor and relies on our licensee franchises to facilitate issuance or acquisition of card transactions. As a franchisor, DCI has responsibility to:
- Maintain a network of viable and reputable franchise Participants.
- Expand the DCI brand by introducing new products, features, and consumer awareness.
- Establish network operating rules and to ensure compliance with contractual obligations, and operating rules to mitigate any potential risk to the network.
- Facilitate the data transfer of cross-border participant transaction activity.
DCI does not directly issue cards or direct the daily activities of merchant acquiring. DCI’s prime responsibility is to manage the association of network participants, as they perform their card issuer and acquirer activities.
Under the licenses granted to its franchisees, DCI has traditionally entered into exclusive arrangements with its business partners for issuing and/or acquiring. In instances where acquiring exclusivity has served to constrain business growth, DCI has taken the strategic decision to open up the market to improve acceptance. Within the EU regulatory environment, DCI is a three party card scheme, including sub-licensees. Although not a dominant market share player, DCI considers that three party schemes are an important source of competition and should not be subject to regulation of interchange fees.
