Giesecke to Moderate iiBIG Education Finance & Loan Symposium Panel
Finance special counsel Karsten Giesecke will moderate the “Life Cycle of Student Loans—Part I: Current Loan Originations Opportunities” panel at iiBIG’s eighth annual Education Finance & Loan Symposium running May 19–20 in Washington, DC.
Giesecke’s session will cover the first part of the life cycle of student loans, including:
- Traditional Lender Activities—tuition lending at for-profit and non-profit schools
- Refinancing Student Loan Debt—incumbents vs new entrants
- International Educational Finance—size of market and product options
- New Education Financing Products—Income Share Agreements (ISAs) as an innovative alternative to student loans
Student loan debt currently exceeds $1.3 trillion, with an estimated 10 million new federal student loans added each year. The cost of higher education continues to rise with trend lines for this asset class showing no signs of slowing down.
With more than 35 expert speakers and presenters from the private and public sector, as well as other key industry participants in the education finance and student loan markets, the conference is expected to provide participants with a 360-degree cross section of the current issues and expected developments in the education finance/student loan industry.
