08:33 EDTWFCWells Fargo sells federal student loans to Navient
Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) Education Financial Services announced that Navient (NAVI) will purchase a principal balance of $8.5B of Federal Family Education Loan Program loans, which are included in Wells Fargo’s held-for-sale loan portfolio. Due to a change in federal law, Wells Fargo has not issued federal student loans since June 30, 2010. This sale supports Wells Fargo’s ongoing strategic focus on its private student lending business. “By selling these FFELP loans to Navient, Wells Fargo will be in a position to focus more on meeting the needs of our private student loan customers,” said John Rasmussen, head of Wells Fargo’s Education Financial Services. “We are deeply committed to the private student loan business because next to purchasing a home or saving for retirement, paying for an education is one of the most important financial events for our customers.” ). The sale is expected to close in a series of transactions, substantially all of which are expected to be completed in fourth quarter 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed and the sale is not material to Wells Fargo.
