Education Loan & Financing Summit -- Future on Investing & Servicing Student Loans in a Rapidly Evolving Industry

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2012) - iiBIG's 2012 Education Loan & Financing Executive Summit, scheduled for May 9-10, 2012 in Washington, D.C., occurs at a crucial time. 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 student loan industry is still very much in transition. Traditional sources of capital have diminished, and in some cases been eliminated altogether. At the same time, the need for capital is increasing. Industry consolidation continues, legacy FFELP and private loan portfolios are in need of long term financing, auction-rate, and other securitizations are ripe for restructuring and/or refinancing and demand for private student loans continues to increase.

iiBIG is pleased to bring back this event to Washington, D.C. Education finance professionals -- in both the private and the public sector -- along with other key valued industry participants in the education finance and student loan markets will gather to discuss the latest issues and to lay the groundwork for the road ahead in 2012 and beyond.

  • If you are a student loan provider, investor, lender, servicer, borrower, academia, not-for-profit issuer or other student loan industry professional, this educational finance event will cover the areas of student loan funding, refinancing, origination and credit that directly affect your business.

  • Hear predictions and insights from the public and private educational loan markets on what to expect from policy-makers as they respond to on-going educational loan challenges.

  • Take advantage of the conference location in Washington, D.C. to call on new Congressional representatives and staff to make sure your views and concerns remain at the top of the agenda.
