PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., April 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iiBIG brings its annual conference – the Education Finance & Loan Symposium scheduled for May 7-8, 2013 – back to Washington D.C. amidst pressing issues affecting education finance today such as the increasing student loan debt and the economy, the latest developments and opportunities for student and education financing, and new student loan programs and repayment options. 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 conference will feature Rohit Chopra, Assistant Director & Student Loan Ombudsman, from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in a keynote address on "How Private Capital Can Help Solve the Student Debt Dilemma". The conference agenda will also cover:
- State of the 2013 Education Finance and Loan Market
- Student Loan Origination Servicing Issues and Concerns and the Effect of the CFPB
- Legal and Regulatory Update
- The New Battle between the U.S. Department of Education and Private Lenders
