Here’s Your BBVA Routing Number

Learn why some banks have more than one routing number.

BBVA is short for Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, the second-largest bank in Spain. BBVA acquired Compass Bank back in 2007, whereupon the bank was renamed BBVA Compass, thus cementing its American presence as BBVA USA. Instead of just one routing number, BBVA USA has multiple routing numbers to help its customers complete banking tasks. Keep reading to learn BBVA’s routing number for your location.

What Is a Routing Number?

Routing numbers are security codes banks use to identify the other financial institution during a wire transfer. Routing numbers can also be used to pay bills online, set up recurring transfers or process checks. The American Bankers Association created routing numbers — also known as ABA numbers — in the early 1900s in order to identify check processing endpoints. Accuity is the official registrar of routing numbers.

Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?

Yes, they can, as BBVA proves. Larger institutions use multiple routing numbers to cover different states. Another reason for banks to use multiple routing numbers is they might’ve acquired them during a past merger. Wells Fargo and Citibank are good examples of big banks with multiple routing numbers.
