BankerBay, a platform which connects companies with investors has raised under $1 million angel funding from Nomura, Ernst & Young, Government of Singapore, Jefferies and other high net worth individuals, the company has confirmed to Medianama.

BankerBay claims to handle over 500 live transactions at present. By…
