HSBC ABA Routing Number
The main purpose of HSBC ABA number is to clearly identify the financial institution with which a particular account is associated. The ABA routing number is derived from the transit number of the bank, which was first designed by the American Bankers Association in 1910. One can easily find this nine digit code just before the account number on the bottom of your checks. After 1911, American Bankers Association started assigning transit numbers with the help of a series of registrars and they are still responsible for assigning new routing numbers.

However, to make online transfer or transactions, you are required to provide the routing number of your HSBC branch where you are making the transfer. At present, there are over 26,879 active routing transit numbers currently used in United States. ABA routing numbers appear in two forms in a standard check - the MICR form and the fraction form. However, both forms provide the same information. The MCIR form consists of nine digits and it appear on the bottom left of a check. On the other hand, the fraction form usually appears on the upper right part of the check and it serves as a backup when MCIR form becomes illegible during the processing of the check.
