Chase has announced that it originated $39.2 billion in mortgages in the third quarter, an increase of 35% from the level recorded a year earlier.The company reported that its originations totaled $119 billion for the first nine months, a 33.6% increase, despite pullbacks by competitors. "Chase is able to originate a wide range of mortgages and home equity products because it has the flexibility to fund the loans directly rather than relying solely on the secondary market," the company said.
