January 15, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2019--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to twenty-five classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from J.P. Morgan Mortgage Trust 2019-1 (JPMMT 2019-1), a prime RMBS transaction. JPMMT 2019-1 contains both prime jumbo (33.0%) and conforming (67.0%) collateral to borrowers with prime attributes.

The JPMMT 2019-1 mortgage pool is composed of 1,707 first-lien mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $978,118,609 as of the cut-off date. The underlying collateral consists entirely of fully-amortizing, fixed-rate mortgages. The pool is characterized by substantial borrower equity in each mortgaged property, as evidenced by the WA original LTV of 68.4% and WA original CLTV of 69.4%. The weighted average original credit score is 761, which is within the prime mortgage range.

KBRA’s rating approach incorporated loan-level analysis of the mortgage pool through its Residential Mortgage Default and Loss Model, an examination of the results from third-party loan file due diligence, cash flow modeling analysis of the transaction’s payment structure, reviews of key transaction parties and an assessment of the transaction’s legal structure and documentation. This analysis is further described in our U.S. RMBS Rating Methodology.
