Fitch Upgrades Currus I-IV Limited Ratings

NEW YORK--()--Fitch Ratings has upgraded the senior and subordinate facilities from Currus I, II, III, and IV Limited. The Rating Outlook is Stable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS:

The upgrade and Stable Outlooks reflect the current rating of the underlying collateral, the class A-6 notes and class B notes issued by SLM Student Loan Trust 2006-10. As of Jan. 16, 2014, the class A-6 notes are rated 'AAAsf' Rating Watch Negative and the SLM class B notes are rated 'Asf' with a Stable Outlook. The ratings assigned to Currus I, II, III, and IV Limited are linked to and move with the rating of the B note since all three facilities have exposure to the subordinated note.
