LendKey to Power Online Student Lending at Navy Federal Credit Union


Navy Federal Credit Union, the largest credit union in the world, is making a splash in the student-loan market with news that its online student lending program will be powered by LendKey.

Aaron Aggerwal, assistant vice president of education lending at Navy Federal, says, “We’re excited to provide students, and their families, the funding they need for school when federal loans, grants, and scholarships are not enough.”

“LendKey’s customizable platform was the right solution for our members and the implementation process ran very smoothly,” he adds.

Using LendKey’s technology, Navy Federal CU will provide both consolidation and private student loans to its members. Navy Federal CU has over $64 billion in assets and more than 5 million members. The institution serves active duty civilian and contractor personnel and their families working with the Department of Defense and Coast Guard.

LendKey has more than 300 community banks and credit unions using the platform, providing loans to more than 35,000 consumers. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York, LendKey announced earlier this month a commitment of up to $1 billion from MidCap Financial to purchase students’ consolidation loans originated on the LendKey platform. The company inked a deal with TrueCar to integrate auto buying and lending in March, and another student lending partnership, with the Western Independent Bankers, in September. Vince Passione is founder and CEO.

LendKey is scheduled to make its Finovate debut at FinovateSpring 2015 in San Jose next month. To see them live on stage, pick up your tickets to our spring conference today.
