LendKey, founded in 2008, has primarily provided financial institutions with lending platforms for private student loans.
The company said it currently offers student lending infrastructure to more than 260 financial institutions.
“We’re excited to continue to help lenders solve this problem through student lending, as well as many other potential asset classes down the road,” Passione said.
