BGF invested £5m into The Exchange Lab, a programmatic marketing company, in November 2013.
The funding helped the company develop its proprietary technology platform and embark on a focused sales strategy in North America. BGF successfully exited its investment in The Exchange Lab following its acquisition by WPP.
