Quarterly home-lending volume accelerated at JPMorgan Chase & Co., while the financial institution’s human resource assets have been expanding.

In its fourth-quarter 2016 earnings report, Chase said income before taxes was $8.7 billion. Income was trimmed from $8.9 billion the prior period.

But earnings at the New York-based business improved from the same three-month time frame in 2015, when pre-tax income came to $7.4 billion.
