MFS Investments Chief Executive Officer said he doesn’t expect assets to grow as much as the 20% they climbed in the past 12 months, due to “more normal” market conditions of about 8% a year, Reuters reports. As the firm’s assets hit the $200 billion market in April, the company celebrated by giving each of its employees either $200 or a windbreaker inscribed with the figure.

“The $200 billion did come faster, but it was because of a big market rally that we had,” said MFS CEO and Chief Investment Officer Robert Manning. “We just don’t expect that going forward.” In fact, the company hopes to reach $250 billion or $300 billion in the next three years.
