Sorry I didn't see your post before now.
The UK gained massively from being an EU member state. Amongst other things, it allowed London to establish itself as a World leading exporter of financial services, thanks to 'passporting'. This is currently under threat. If you're in the mood for an informative read...
The EU is not that important in Financial market terms, more of 50% of all stock market capitalisation is in the USA, ignoring the EU to concentrate on the USA would make much more sense if you were starting with a fresh sheet of paper.
