What is MOIC?

MOIC - an explanation

Looking to invest?

MOIC stands for 'multiple on invested capital'. It is a metric commonly used in private markets and measures investment returns by comparing the value or performance of an investment at a given point in time to its initial cost.

The MOIC metric is particularly prevalent in the private equity industry, where it is used to track a fund’s investment performance and compare returns across different firms.

In private equity, it is used to see the gross multiple of how much money has been made relative to how much money has been invested, and takes into account both realised and unrealised gains on investments.
