KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to JPMMT 2022-3
Pool comprises 891 residential mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $1 billion.
KBRA has assigned preliminary ratings to 71 classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from J.P. Morgan Mortgage Trust 2022-3 (JPMMT 2022-3), the ratings agency said.
The JPMMT 2022-3 loans were acquired by J.P. Morgan Mortgage Acquisition Corp. (JPMMAC), a residential mortgage conduit that resides within J.P. Morgan Securities LLC. JPMMAC purchases loans from a number of experienced third-party jumbo loan sellers.
The pool comprises 891 first-lien, fixed-rate residential mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $1 billion as of the March 1, 2022, cut-off date. The pool includes both non-agency (96.8%) and agency-eligible (3.2%) loans. The weighted average original credit score is 765, which is well within the prime mortgage range.
KBRA assigned preliminary ratings as follows:
- A-12-A, A-13-A, A-14-A, A-15-A, A-16-A, A-21, A-21-X, A-22, A-22-X, A-23, A-23-X, A-24, A-24-X, A-26-A, A-27-A, A-X-1, A-X-4-A, A-X-4-B: AAA

KBRA’s rating approach incorporated loan-level analysis of the mortgage pool through its KBRA RMBS Credit 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.
