All in method
What is the all in method?
It's a strategy used by private equity firms to evaluate and raise the capital for potential investments. In the all in method, all members of the firm openly discuss the benefits and potential pitfalls of an investment opportunity, rather than there being one specific champion or lead.
Where have you heard about the all in method?
Unless you work at a private equity firm you're more likely to have heard of it from your financial adviser.
What you need to know about the all in method.
It's inclusive. Unlike investment opportunities that are presented to the private equity firm's investment committee by one advocate, in the all in method everybody gets the chance to consider, discuss and give their opinion on the investment in a more open environment.
On the one hand, it can be a good way of raising capital for an investment but, as the deal has no individual owner or champion, there is a danger that it won't receive the same amount of attention once the funding has been agreed.
