So, is this an issue I should be concerned with? Does it make the lift less effective? Any recomendations?
I think you should be in good shape for decent pulling. You're torso length would play a role in leverage as well.

Post a pic/vid of you doing the lift so we can see if anything seems amiss.

Also, don't forget all the deadlift varieties if conventional doesn't fit you.
