KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to J.P. Morgan Mortgage Trust 2019-INV1 (JPMMT 2019-INV1)

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to
twenty-seven classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from J.P.
Morgan Mortgage Trust 2019-INV1 (JPMMT 2019-INV1), a prime RMBS
transaction, the first from JPMMT backed predominately by non-agency and
agency-eligible investment-purpose mortgage loans exempt (99.3%) from
Ability-to-Repay (ATR) rules. For 7 loans (0.7%) the designation is QM
even though the borrower’s DTI may be above 43%, due to a temporary
exemption afforded to GSE-eligible loans under the Ability-to-Repay
(ATR) rules.

The JPMMT 2019-INV1 mortgage pool is composed of 919 first-lien mortgage
loans with an aggregate principal balance of $ 338,840,065 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 65.9% and WA original CLTV of 66.0%. The weighted
average original credit score is 767, which is within the prime mortgage

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.
