Ray Ranson's playing career ended due to injury in 1995. A year later he took a job working for Benfield Greig,

the insurance company owned by Chelsea director Matthew Harding (26 December 1953 – 22 October 1996).

Ranson invested heavily in the company and sold his stake for several million pounds in 2002.

He then started a venture, funding football transfers on a sale and leaseback basis.

In December 2007 Ranson completed a deal to take over Coventry City.
