Meet the Experts: Behind the Scenes at Emery Little

We’re aware that a lot of the time, the person whom you as a client come into regular contact with at Emery Little is your financial planner; the personal face of your investment plans and aspirations. But behind this knowledgeable face is a whole team of other specialists, applying their expertise and experience to inform, manage and support your financial plans. 

We feel we want you to ‘meet’ these people and give you a sense of Emery Little as a whole.

So let us introduce Jo Hammond, one of our Client PAs here at Emery Little. 

Over to you, Jo…

I had my first short stint working with Emery Little 18 years ago. I left to join another IFA firm and then went on to have my two children. I started back at work at a mortgage brokers and was there for five years before spotting that Emery Little had a vacancy. I was very quick to get in touch with my old colleagues and I’m pleased to say they swiftly welcomed me back. I can safely say that my decision to re-join Emery Little was a good one. 

I work with a number of of our Financial Planners - Woods, Marcus and Harry - and support them with the work they do with clients. I’ve also been tasked with implementing a new process for welcoming new clients and taking them through the first steps of establishing their financial strategy.  

I enjoy forging relationships with clients and my colleagues. I hope clients know that they can contact me with any queries and that I will always seek to provide help and guidance where I can and that I provide a link between them and the Planners.

I really like how the whole team are included in any decisions and efforts to enhance our services. Seeing the results of all of our individual input is rewarding.

I absolutely love horses; there is something so special about them that I can’t put into words. It will come as no surprise to hear that when I’m not working, I can normally be found at the stables. The time spent with horses completely clears my head and refreshes me for hours after - even the muddy wet winter gallops. I also enjoy exercise, particularly barre, pilates and badminton. I love long walks with my three year old French Bulldog, Teddy. At home, he’s known as the King of the Castle - for good reason.

My two daughters - Ruby and Maisie - are at the same school but have very different interests.  Ruby shares my passion for horses and I have great difficulty prizing her away from the stables. Maisie can’t think of anything worse than spending time with horses and is a keen footballer. She’s joined a local girls football team and it’s a delight watching her get stuck into her games.
