What Does All In Method Mean?
The all in method is a strategy used in private equity (PE) firms to obtain funding for a potential transaction. Private equiteers regularly bring opportunities to a PE firm's investment committee. The all in method (as opposed to the defensive lead method) involves all the members of the firm discussing the merits and pitfalls of the opportunity without a specific champion. Since the all in method is more inclusive of everyone's input, it is a preferred approach at PE firms as it allows for everyone's buy-in.
