Fitch Affirms Nelnet Student Loan Trust Series 2010-2

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Fitch Ratings affirms Nelnet Student Loan Trust Series 2010-2 notes at ‘AAAsf’. The Rating Outlook remains Stable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

High Collateral Quality: The trusts’ collateral consists of 100% Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) loans. The credit quality of the trusts’ collateral is high, in Fitch’s opinion, based on the guarantees provided by the transaction’s eligible guarantors and reinsurance provided by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) for at least 97% of principal and accrued interest. Fitch currently rates the U.S. ‘AAA’ with a Stable Outlook.

Sufficient Credit Enhancement: Credit enhancement (CE) for the trust is provided by overcollateralization (OC; the excess of trust’s asset balance over bond balance) and excess spread. As of August 2014, the total reported parity for the trust is 109.03% and has been increasing since inception No cash can be released until all bonds are paid in full.

Adequate Liquidity Support: Liquidity support is provided by a debt service reserve fund sized at the greater of 0.25% of the pool balance and $676,998.

Acceptable Servicing Capabilities: Nelnet, Inc. is responsible for the day-to-day servicing of the loans in the trusts. In Fitch’s opinion, they are an acceptable servicer of FFELP student loans.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Since FFELP student loan ABS rely on the U.S. government to reimburse defaults, ‘AAAsf’ FFELP ABS ratings will likely move in tandem with the ‘AAA’ U.S. sovereign rating. Aside from the U.S. sovereign rating, defaults and basis risk account for the majority of the risk embedded in FFELP student loan transactions. Additional defaults and basis shock beyond Fitch’s published stresses could result in future downgrades. Likewise, a buildup of credit enhancement driven by positive excess spread given favorable basis factor conditions could lead to future upgrades.

Fitch has affirmed the Nelnet Student Loan Trust Series 2010-2 notes as follows:

–Class A at ‘AAAsf’; Outlook Stable.
