"A third of the UK economy is related to exports, but that is not the case for UK-listed companies," says Simon Gergel, fund manager of The Merchants Trust (MRCH). "Vodafone (VOD) is not a trader."

Gergel dispels the idea that UK companies will be adversely impacted by Brexit, that is, at least, not the ones listed on the UK stock exchange.
