In 1911, the banking industry entered the modern age. The financial routing number system created by the American Bankers Association (ABA) was the mechanism for identifying each financial institution in the United States. Under the system, each bank was assigned a unique routing number, the first of which was assigned in 1911 to The Bank of New York. Today, there are over 24,000 active routing numbers in use in the United States. Accuity has served as the Official Registrar of Routing Numbers for the American Bankers Association since 1911. In addition to the assignment of routing numbers to qualified institutions, Accuity also publishes the semi-annual ABA Key to Routing Numbers directory. The movement of funds through the financial system by U.S.-based banks and financial institutions like BNY Mellon is made possible by the ABA Routing Number.
