Education Finance Industry Leaders, Public, Private Student Loan Lenders and Borrowers Head to D.C. for iiBIG Student Loan Executive Summit

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) - iiBIG presents the 2012 Education Loan & Financing Executive Summit, scheduled for May 9-10, 2012, in Washington, D.C. With the majority of education financing now being provided by the federal government, not only has the environment of providing capital for education to student borrowers dramatically changed, but so has the availability of capital for schools. The agenda will cover the latest developments and opportunities affecting education finance and student loans markets as such as:

  • Finding value in student loans today with the latest in industry consolidation, legacy FFELP and private loan portfolios in need of long-term financing, auction-rate and other securitizations ripe for restructuring and/or refinancing, and the continuing demand for private student loans
  • Legal and regulatory update: Dodd-Frank /CFPB issues and concerns, LIBOR election, IRS variable closing agreement program, CFPB developments, and securitization developments
  • The latest on private education finance with a focus on a new generation of student lenders entering the market with products designed to better serve schools and students than traditional private student loans
  • Loan servicing issues and concerns
  • Risks of a single-payer system -- why universities should support vibrant private education finance markets
  • Beyond direct lending -- the path to the next student loan program
  • Update on litigation in the auction rate securities area
