Our history

Christopher Little & Co Financial Advisers was founded in 1991 by Christopher Little. From our office, based in the picturesque market town of Otley, we have been helping clients achieve their goals through sound financial planning for over 25 years.

In January 2016, Thomas Hatley took over the business from Christopher Little and the business has gone from strength to strength.

  • Use a high degree of technical skill to advise on whether to transfer, and what to transfer into so you have the best chance of meeting your objectives.
