What is a clearing number?
A clearing number is a number assigned to a financial institution by the DTCC (the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation). Every institution gets a unique code (sometimes multiple for different branches.) These numbers help financial institutions facilitate transfers of assets.
Clearing numbers are required for account transfers. To find your clearing number, see this list.
If you are transferring funds out of OpenInvest, Apex’s clearing number is 0158.
If you are transferring your account from Swell, your clearing number is 0728.
