English financier; born in Hesse-Cassel about 1830; died at Liverpool April,1887. He joined the Liverpool Exchange, and at one time was one of the largest cotton-speculators in the world, but later failed in business. The vastness of his transactions may be gathered from the fact that he spent about £100,000 per annum in brokerages and commissions, and in the year of his failure turned over nearly £10,000,000. Ranger was prominently identified with Jewish affairs in Liverpool. He exercised great benevolence and founded a scholarship at the Liverpool University.
