The American Securitization Forum appointed John Hupalo, executive vice president of First Marblehead, and Guido Van Der Ven, a vice president at Sallie Mae, as co-chairs of its newly created student loan issuers subforum. The group attracted between 12 and 15 student loan issuers to its first meeting last week in Washington, D.C. The student loan sub forum will meet regularly to discuss increasing investor awareness and liquidity for student-loan-backed bonds, as well as how regulatory issues will impact the sector, according to the ASF.
