Education Loan & Financing Summit -- Growth Through Learning at iiBIG Summit

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 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.

As reported in the April 6th issue of Asset-Backed Alert -- "A startup education lender with a novel business strategy is developing an ambitious securitization plan." Mike Cagney, the Founder of Social Finance will be presenting on one of our keynote panel presentations being covered at the conference -- Private Education Finance 2.0: Better for Borrowers, Better for Schools. A new generation of student lenders is entering the market with products designed to better serve schools and students than traditional private student loans. Each lender has a unique take on the market, but examples of innovations include tapping alumni capital to fund originations and fostering relationships among members of affinity-based communities. The resulting social contracts are expected to improve borrower performance but, even more importantly, improve borrower outcomes by tying in school and alumni relationships. While such features have been discussed for years in theory, emerging lenders like Social Finance, Inc. are incorporating them at scale. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe will lead the discussion along with Powers Pyles Sutter and others will add their expertise to this new and upcoming idea.

  • 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 areas of student loan funding, refinancing, origination and credit that directly affect your business and beyond.
  • 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.
