American Express Financial Advisors Inc. has introduced a business that will deliver financial services and products to Japanese consumers.

American Express Financial Advisors Japan is a new division of the company's Minneapolis-based financial advisory service. The president of the Japanese branch, Stephen Harner, joined the company after running an office for Deutsche Bank in Shanghai, acting as a managing director for Yangtze Century Investment in Hong Kong, and being a vice president and branch manager at Citibank.

The division will sell investment products to American Express cardholders during the first half of 1999, then to other prospects later in the year.
