(Bloomberg) -- U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May is shunning the European Union in her vacation choices, opting to take her August break in Switzerland.

Her pounds will buy fewer Swiss francs as a result of Britain’s decision to leave the EU. Sterling has fallen 11 percent since the June 23 referendum.
