Asian shares edged up and sterling stood close to its peak for the year today, as investors were cautiously optimistic that British voters would opt to remain in the European Union at a referendum later in the session.

Two opinion polls published late on Wednesday, a few hours before voters were due to begin to cast their votes, showed the “Remain” camp gaining momentum in the closely divided campaign.
