About Us

Bob Little & Co Ltd is a firm of Independent Financial Advisers based in the North of England, servicing clients locally and nationwide. Our company has primarily grown through word-of-mouth recommendations from many of our satisfied clients.

Our history

Our founder, Bob Little, started working as an appointed representative for a major financial services company in 1985 after working as an engineer in the gas and chemicals industries. In 1993 he decided to work for himself and established our company. After a short illness, Bob sadly passed away in 2011

Our company is still family owned. Bob’s son, Robert Little, and all our other staff continue to provide the same style of fair and ethical financial advice which helped to build Bob’s reputation over the years.

This has led to our business continuing to grow based on recommendations from existing clients and other professionals, who admire the high standard of principles and ethics at Bob Little & Co Ltd.

We welcome clients from all walks of life, from first-time investors to very experienced investors and from people starting out in their working lives to people nearing their retirement. We also provide advice to businesses owners and directors.

We have a team of experienced and highly qualified staff, which you can read more about here: Our Staff

We offer a free, confidential, no-obligation initial consultation with one of our advisers to let you see if our services are right for you before you decide how you would like to proceed.

Personal finances can change rapidly, particularly following changes in legislation or changes in your circumstances, so we also offer optional ongoing financial reviews to ensure that our advice is updated over time.

What our clients say...

“With some organisations you’re not always quite sure whether they’re mainly in it for themselves or for their clients. But I feel that Bob Little & Co always have our best interests at heart. They’re very good and they’ve also helped our children as well. When they were going to university, Bob was an advocate of them taking the student loans that were available at low interest and investing their savings in order to get a better return. In a sense that’s helped our children recognise that good financial management should start when you’re young. Since then one of them has bought buy-to-lets and they go through Robert for all those things. Robert comes over as a very genuine person and I always get a good feeling about the team who work in the office. Many of them have been with him for a long time, which usually indicates that it’s a good operation.”

- Mr H, Leeds
