(Jun 28 Bloomberg) The pound rose for the first time since the U.K.'s vote to leave the European Union, as a recovery in investor appetite for higher-yielding assets seeped through currency markets and sapped demand for the dollar and the yen as havens.

The yen weakened after Japanese officials reiterated that they will continue to watch markets.
