Note: On February, 27, 2023, Knowledge First Financial Inc. and the Knowledge First Foundation became Embark Student Corp. and the Embark Student Foundation, respectively.

Knowledge First Financial today announced an increase to the management fee of its Flex First plan, as described in the product’s prospectus. Rising 0.19% from 1.30% to 1.49%, the change will take effect today, on February 1, 2023.

The increase will be used to offset increased plan administration costs brought on by a significant rise in inflation, while helping to improve the overall customer experience through value-added services and new digital capabilities.

Despite the change, the Flex First plan’s management fee remains very competitive within the industry.
