Our Mission

Since 1995, financial professionals have relied on Financial Services Online for its extensive library of financial tools and support materials, and its moderate cost provides the best value proposition in the industry. We strive to provide financial service professionals with the marketing tools and resources they need to efficiently operate and grow their financial practices. We provide these comprehensive services through our VSA and VRL products.

Our History

In 1995, two 20-plus year veterans of the financial services industry combined their talents to create an entirely new concept for a paperless publishing house for advisors. Bill O'Quin, CLU, ChFC, RFC and Joan Barrett, CLU, ChFC were quick to recognize that the Internet would revolutionize the way information could be delivered.

By 1996, Bill, Joan and technical experts, Jim O'Quinn and Dylan Tynan, brought the VSA to the market. It provided a single location for all information needed for an advisor to operate a professional practice and all at a very reasonable price. The VSA was available 24/7/365, always kept current with new financial advisor support and reference tools, with no books, brochures or expensive software to buy.

In 1998, Bill and Joan sold the company to LUTC (an industry training institution) and continued working and further developing the VSA. In 2000, LUTC merged with the American College and the College decided that the VSA was not needed in their curriculum. As a result, Bill and Joan reacquired the company in 2002.

The VSA now has a marketing and content relationship with The National Underwriter and has over 5,000 subscribers with numerous companies, BGAs, IMOs and broker-dealers as clients. Today, the VSA is rightfully known as "the most comprehensive support tool in the industry."

In 2016, a partnership with Financial Services Online and Dick Cleary, President and CEO of FSEdNet, lead to the development of the VRL. FSEdNet is a state-of-the-art virtual educational and training system to launch, retool and re-energize financial professionals and staff in building a successful practice in the financial services industry. Dick has been involved in the financial services industry since 1983, with prior experience at Jefferson Pilot and John Hancock Financial Network and brings a wealth of knowledge to the table.
