About Us

Ranson is the most experienced pure financial advisory firm incorporated in the State of Kansas. While many investment-banking firms provide financial advisory services as an add-on to their main business of bond underwriting, it is our sole business.

Ranson prides itself in bringing state-of-the-art computer technology into the financial analysis process. Principals of our firm are well trained to use this technology to its utmost potential. This training and expertise can be brought right into the board room when Ranson acts as your Financial Advisor. Our goal is to obtain the optimum financing for our clients.

The Ranson companies’ history goes as far back as the 1930’s. Principals of our firm have over 100 years of combined experience in serving the public and corporate finance needs of Kansas, Missouri and Texas. Our experience includes handling debt financings for cities, counties, school districts, special districts and other public-purpose corporations, as well as corporate financings. In addition, Ranson has been actively providing financial advisory services to the Kansas Rural Water Finance Authority, Kansas Municipal Energy Association, Kansas Power Pool and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Ranson has been also serving an educational mission by participating as featured speaker at the following annual conferences: Council Infrastructure Finance Authority (CIFA), American Water Works Association and National Rural Water Association. In addition, Ranson is a member and sponsor of the Kansas Government Finance Officers Association.
