I know there is no exact answer and it would be different at every
firm, but if you are not doing fee based, how much in assets would be
required to consistently do \$250k gross a year?

Why do you only want to do \$250,000 gross?

Assuming an ROA of 1%, that'd be \$25 million for \$250k.  Probably most ROA's fall between 1 & 2%.

I don't, but just starting out it would be kinda silly to ask how much it would take to do \$500,000 or \$1,000,000 gross since it would be quite a while before I can reach those numbers.  I figure \$250,000 gross is a good medium term (3-5 years) goal.

Thanks, is that true for non-fee based?

It all depends on your turn of assets, but 1% is a little high for my book. I run about .75-.85.  In other words, take the trailing 12 months and divide by current assets, that will give you your ROA or velocity. Then to figure what assets you need take that and divide by trailing 12 you want to give you the approximate velocity you would need. Bear in mind the longer that you are in the business, typically your velocity would tend to decrease slightly. Hope that helps.
