Lye has been with IFM Investors as a senior associate for the last year, integrating responsible investing factors across the equities asset class and working with the equities team on ESG product development.

Before her time with IFM, Lye was a senior investment analyst at LUCRF Super until a restructuring of the fund's investment operations in late 2019. She previously spent more than 14 years in a variety of analyst roles with The Gandel Group including treasuries, listed, and direct investments.
