Hawkwin: London is the HQ of finance and investment in Europe. If there was a hard exit (and to a lesser extent, even a negotiated exit), it is estimated that $2 trillion would leave London (and I read a recent report that the movement has already started with roughly $1 trillion already gone). Dozens if not hundreds of companies would have to relocate to mainland Europe as they could no longer have their European HQs outside of Europe. London would probably lose 20,000 direct and indirect jobs.

I know from very little about this, but I have a recollection that Zurich was a huge banking and business center. This prompts me to wonder, "Is Switzerland a member of the EU?"

Yeah, I should look it up myself, but I will get some erudite responses giving more information.
