    Which do you think takes longer and carries higher risk:-

    1) Unwinding investments in financial instruments traded electronically

    2) Getting a country to secede from a regional political union or remain in it, changing numerous laws in the process

    It's obviously 2. The billionaires of both sides are doing this for ideological reasons. Money is just a tool. Clumsy 'follow the money' analysis when we're talking about billionaires is a sign the person doing it doesn't have a solid grasp on what that kind of wealth entails. Yes, there are probably a few parliamentary & establishment remainers whose wealth is measured in the low millions who are doing this because of EU largesse. It's irrelevant for people like Soros, Crispin Odey, Branson, Rees-Mogg.

    I dont dismiss it so easily. I think there's boys playing a big stake game as much as there are ideologues riding the opportunity.

    If you were a billionaire investor simply optimising to make more money, trying to steer the political culture and treaty obligations of a whole country, rather than just betting on the most likely political outcome, would be a completely retarded way of doing it.

    Remember when the UK crashed out of the ERM? George Soros is a big fan of the EU, but when he saw which way the economic wind was blowing he profited from the ERM failing.

    I dont think this is the case though, I think they are playing a game, a big stakes game, I think they're basically competitive boys.
