Routing numbers, SWIFT codes, BIC and IBANs – what’s the difference?

Banks love confusing financial jargon. Here’s a simple explanation.

You’ll need a few details to send or receive a wire transfer – either here in the US or internationally.

Routing numbers help identify banks when processing domestic ACH payments or wire transfers. But only in the United States. You don't need one to make a payment to your friend in France, for example.

SWIFT codes, like routing numbers, also identify banks and financial institutions. This time for international payments. They're sometimes known as BIC codes.

IBANs (international bank account numbers) identify individual bank accounts. They're issued by many banks in Europe, but banks elsewhere in the world are starting to adopt them as well.
