About American Express


American Express is a global services company, providing customers with access to products, insights and experiences that enrich lives and build business success.


American Express has partnered with a select group of leading banks and financial institutions around the world to issue American Express-branded products and acquire merchants on the American Express merchant network. By leveraging its licensing partnerships, global infrastructure and the powerful appeal of the brand, American Express has gained even broader reach for its network worldwide.




BDO is now among the market leaders in its core business lines following its merger with Equitable PCI Bank (EPCI) in May 2007. The Bank offers a complete array of products and services, i.e. Retail Banking, Lending (Corporate, Commercial, Consumer, and SME), Treasury, Trust, Credit Cards, Corporate Cash Management and Remittances.


Through its subsidiaries, the bank offers Leasing and Financing, Investment Banking, Private Banking, Bancassurance, Insurance Brokerage and Stock Brokerage services. It has one of the largest branch networks, with over 1,000 branches and more than 4,000 ATMs nationwide. 


The Bank has reaped numerous awards from prestigious domestic and international institutions and publications. These awards validate BDO's pursuit of excellence and commitment to all markets it serves.

When BDO took over EPCI, it assumed the operation and issuance of The EPCI American Express Credit Card and The EPCI American Express Gold Credit Card. By December 2007, BDO also became the Issuer of all American Express Cards in the Philippines issued out by American Express International, Inc. (AEII) and American Express Savings Bank (A Savings Bank), Inc. (AESBI). Since then, BDO has continued to enhance these products and develop new ones to satisfy customer requirements.
