The Federal Family Education Loan Program's Impact on the Student Loans Market, More at iiBIG's Student Loans Summit

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  iiBIG's 2010 Student Loans Financing Executive Summit, scheduled for May 10-11, 2010 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., will be an important gathering of industry professionals at an important time. Whatever the final legislative outcome for FFELP, there will be lasting changes in the FFELP lending infrastructure going forward. 

During the last 2 years, student loan finance has endured a series of landscape-altering political and economic events. Fallout from the capital markets turmoil of 2008 and 2009 continues to fundamentally impact liquidity for existing student loan-backed securities and the availability of private capital to fund or refinance student loans. Student loan holder yield reductions in late 2007 -- followed by a legislative effort to shift all student loan funding to a federal, direct-lending model -- have led to uncertain futures for FFELP lenders, loan servicers, and other industry service providers. And amidst all this change, the nation's schools, students, and families remain concerned about preserving an uninterrupted, timely flow of loan funding and quality long-term service to borrowers.
