MINNEAPOLIS, September 18, 2000 -- American Express Brokerage announced today that it will make the following changes to its commission schedule:

“We are making these changes to ensure that we can continue to provide the level of service and advice that our customers have come to expect,” said Francois Odouard, vice president, American Express Brokerage. “The new free trading structure will actually affect a very small percentage of our current clients. More than 98 percent of our clients already trade within these limits. The other pricing changes still place us in a very competitive position relative to similar online services.”

The former commission schedule was as follows: Accounts with $100,000 or more in total assets received free online equity trades and accounts with $25,000 to $99,999 in total assets received unlimited free online equity buys. Also, online market and online limit/stop orders at lower asset levels were $14.95 and telephone orders placed through service representatives were $44.95.

The new pricing schedule will take effect October 30.

American Express Brokerage plans to add new enhancements to its service early next year, including additional equity research and portfolio analysis tools.
