Item 8.01

Other Events

Portfolio Information Tables

The following information relates to the credit card receivables owned by the issuing entity and the related credit card accounts. Some of the terms used herein are used as defined in the “Glossary of Defined Terms” at the end of this report.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a strain of novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, to be a global pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic and governmental responses to the pandemic led to the institution of social distancing and shelter-in-place requirements in certain areas of the U.S. and other countries resulting in ongoing severe impacts on national and global economic conditions, including a significant disruption and volatility in the financial markets, significant disruption of global supply chains, and closures of many businesses leading to loss of revenues and increased unemployment. A prolongation or worsening of the pandemic, or the emergence of other diseases that give rise to similar effects, could deepen the adverse impact on the global economy. The extent of the COVID-19 pandemic will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic, the effectiveness of vaccination programs and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic. While the economy is showing signs of improvement,

uncertainties remain, including the health of underlying labor markets, vaccine efficacy against new virus strains, and the potential for changes in consumer behavior that could have longer term impacts on certain sectors.

In March 2020, JPMorgan Chase Bank, including in its capacity as servicer of the Trust Portfolio, began providing assistance to customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, predominantly in the form of payment deferrals. At March 31, 2021, the deferral offered to customers for eligible card accounts is one month minimum payment. Interest continues to accrue during the deferral period and is added to the principal balance of the credit card account. Initially, JPMorgan Chase Bank offered credit card customers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to delay minimum payments for three months. These modifications are intended to mitigate adverse effects on borrowers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of the servicer’s payment deferral program was not material to the performance of the Trust Portfolio during the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Delinquency and Loss Experience

The following tables describe the delinquency and loss experience for each of the periods shown for the Trust Portfolio and include all receivables included in the Trust Portfolio as of the date specified in the tables. There can be no assurance that the delinquency and loss experience for the Issuing Entity Receivables will be similar to the historical experience set forth below because, among other things, economic and financial conditions affecting the ability of cardholders to make payments, including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, may be different from those that have prevailed during the periods reflected below. For instance, accounts in the Trust Portfolio that are subject to COVID-19 payment deferral plans and performing according to modified terms are generally not considered delinquent and may not advance to the next delinquency cycle, including eventually to charge-off, in the same timeframe that would have occurred had a modification not been granted. The negative effects, including on delinquency and losses and the recognition of charge-offs, may be delayed because of the impact of prior and potential future government stimulus actions or payment deferrals provided to customers.

   2.04%(4)   2.10  2.30  2.38  2.39

 

(1)

Gross Losses are charge-offs of principal receivables. Gross Losses do not include the amount of any reductions in principal receivables due to fraud, returned goods or customer disputes, the amount of which instead results in the reduction of the Transferor Amount. The number of accounts experiencing a loss for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was 12,474.

(2)

Recoveries are amounts received on previously charged-off receivables. As Recoveries are amounts received from defaulted accounts and allocated to the issuing entity from the servicer’s managed portfolio of credit card receivables, the number of accounts with a recovery cannot be calculated. Recoveries as a percentage of Gross Losses for each of the three months ended March 31, 2021 were 19.68% and for each of the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 were 16.24%, 11.20%, 10.31% and 9.44%.

(3)

Net Losses are Gross Losses minus Recoveries. Net Losses do not include any reductions in principal receivables due to fraud, returned goods or customer disputes, the amount of which instead results in the reduction of the Transferor Amount. Net Losses as a percentage of Gross Losses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were 80.32% and for each of the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 were 83.76%, 88.80%, 89.69% and 90.56%.

(4)

Annualized.

The delinquency and net loss percentages for the Trust Portfolio at any time reflect, among other factors, the quality of the related credit card loans in the Trust Portfolio, the average seasoning of the related revolving credit card accounts in the Trust Portfolio, the success of JPMorgan Chase Bank’s collection efforts and general economic conditions. Loans under payment deferral programs offered in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which are still within their deferral period and performing according to their modified terms are generally not considered delinquent.

Future charge-offs in the Trust Portfolio and overall credit quality for the Trust Portfolio are subject to uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ from current and historical performance. The direction and level of credit card loan delinquencies and charge-offs may be impacted by adverse economic conditions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of prior and potential future government stimulus actions or payment assistance provided to customers.

Revenue Experience

The revenue experience for the issuing entity for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and for each of the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 is described in the following table. The revenue experience for the issuing entity in the following table is calculated on a cash basis. Finance charges, fees and interchange are comprised of monthly periodic finance charges, annual membership fees and other credit card fees and interchange amounts.

(1)

Yield from Finance Charges, Fees and Interchange is the result of dividing finance charges, fees and interchange amounts, by the Average Pool Balance for the periods indicated.

The revenue experience will be affected by numerous factors, including, but not limited to, the monthly periodic finance charges on the credit card receivables, other fees and interchange amounts, changes in the delinquency and loss rates on the credit card receivables, the percentage of revolving credit card accounts bearing finance charges at promotional rates and the percentage of cardholders who pay their balances in full each month and do not incur monthly periodic finance charges. These factors may in turn be caused or affected by a variety of other factors, including seasonal spend variations, the availability of other sources of credit and general economic conditions, unemployment levels, consumer spending and borrowing patterns, all of which may be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, revenue experience will be affected by future changes in the types of charges and fees assessed by JPMorgan Chase Bank on the revolving credit card accounts and on the types of additional revolving credit card accounts added to the issuing entity from time to time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in reduced card usage resulting in lower interchange amounts. In addition, under payment deferral programs offered to cardholders affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, cardholders may delay the payment of finance charges and the servicer may waive or refund certain fees resulting in reduced yield during periods of deferment.

The revenue experience from periodic finance charges and fees—other than annual fees—depends in part upon the collective preference of cardholders to use their credit cards as revolving debt instruments for purchases and cash advances and to pay account balances over several months—as opposed to convenience use, where cardholders pay off their entire balance each month, thereby avoiding periodic finance charges on their purchases—and upon other credit card related services for which the cardholder pays a fee.

Principal Payment Rates

The cardholder monthly principal payment rate for each month is calculated as a percentage of the Pool Balance as of the first day of that month, subject to adjustment for additions and removals of assets that occur in that month.

Monthly Average

   41.28  36.30  34.98  33.37  31.02

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, JPMorgan Chase Bank, as servicer, offered a payment deferral program to allow cardholders affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to delay minimum payments which could result in reduced principal payment rates in future periods.

Composition of Issuing Entity Receivables.

As of March 31, 2021:

 

  

the Issuing Entity Receivables included $10,691,563,754 in total receivables;

 

  

the accounts in the issuing entity had an average total receivables balance of $1,512, including accounts with a zero balance and an average credit limit of $14,448;

 

  

the percentage of the aggregate total receivables balance in the Issuing Entity Receivables to the aggregate total credit limit was 10.47%;

 

  

the average age of the accounts, the receivables of which are in the Issuing Entity Receivables, was approximately 234 months;

 

  

for the March 2021 monthly period, 2.84% of the accounts in the issuing entity received the minimum payment due and 29.72% of the accounts in the issuing entity received a full balance payment; and

 

  

of the accounts in the issuing entity, approximately 12.05% related to cardholders with billing addresses in California, 8.69% in New York, 7.84% in Texas, 6.27% in Florida and 5.88% in Illinois; no other single state accounts for more than 5% of the accounts in the issuing entity. Since the largest number of accountholders (based on billing addresses) whose accounts were included in the issuing entity were in California, New York, Texas, Florida and Illinois, adverse economic, financial or social conditions, including those resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, or environmental conditions affecting accountholders residing in these states could affect timely payment by the related accountholders of amounts due on the accounts and, accordingly, the actual rates of delinquencies and losses with respect to the issuing entity.

The following tables summarize the Issuing Entity Receivables by various criteria as of March 31, 2021. Receivables in the following tables include principal, finance charge and fee receivables held directly by the issuing entity. Because the composition of the Issuing Entity Receivables may change over time, these tables are not necessarily indicative of the composition of the receivables in the issuing entity at any future time. In addition, in each of the following tables the number of accounts includes all non-charged off credit card accounts in the Trust Portfolio, but does not include inactivated credit card accounts where the credit card had been lost or stolen or that had been flagged for potential fraud and replaced with a new credit card account.

The following table reflects the distribution of the FICO scores for a statistically significant random sample of credit card accounts included in the Trust Portfolio received by JPMorgan Chase Bank in March 2021 and the outstanding receivables balances of the related accounts as of March 31, 2021.
