Should Investors Be Worried About ‘Brexit’?

Updated on

David Cameron heads to Brussels Thursday seeking to finish off months of negotiations on new European Union membership terms with a deal that he can put to the British people. If he succeeds, he’ll fire the starting gun on a four-month referendum campaign intended to secure the U.K.’s place inside the bloc.

Since winning re-election last May, Cameron has held at least two face-to-face meetings with every other EU leader. He’s visited 20 of the 27 other member states, including two that hadn’t had a visit from a British prime minister in six decades and one -- Slovenia -- that had never seen one.
