Wells Fargo has about $10.6 billion in student loan holdings, a number that has declined from $11.8 billion two years ago and that accounts for about 8 percent of the $130 billon private student loan market. The bank’s decision to pull back from private student lending comes amid disruptions to higher education caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
