Two of Europe’s biggest exchange operators are considering marriage even as politicians contemplate divorce.

London Stock Exchange Group Plc and Deutsche Boerse AG said on Tuesday they’re in talks about a merger that would create a combined business worth more than 20 billion pounds ($28 billion). The discussions were confirmed as British voters consider whether the country should remain in the European Union ahead of a referendum on membership.
