07/22/16 10:17 AMLessons from Brexit market winners - Don't Panic - [Reuters] - The best-performing mutual funds avoided explicit directional bets on the outcome of last month's UK vote to leave the European Union, sitting out the volatility by latching on early to large, defensive, dividend-paying blue chip stocks. This strategy has, so far at least, been the big winner post-referendum as UK stock markets stabilise after the sharp downdraft in the aftermath of the vote. For returns over the past month that capture the market's swings following the Brexit vote, however, that ratio has worsened significantly.

06/17/16 01:01 AMBritish companies prepare for long night to possible Brexit - [Reuters - UK Focus] - In the final week before Britain's June 23 referendum on EU membership, the prospect of a "Leave" vote has come into sharp focus, prompting a last-minute flurry of preparations in the corridors of "UK PLC". Britain would have two years to negotiate its exit, or "Brexit", from the 28-country bloc. Treasury departments will also be working overtime because a vote for a Brexit would be expected to roil currency markets and have major consequences for trade, the economy and migration in Britain and elsewhere.
