Vacant offices, court cases initiated: The end of the hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC) does not sound like a happy ending. Only recently did the company have to announce its insolvency using a corresponding procedure.

The euro falls to one US dollar

A historic low: the euro has reached parity with the US dollar. One euro is therefore equal to one US dollar. At times, the currency of the euro zone even slipped below the greenback.

Such a low was last recorded in 2002. Rising inflation rates, the ongoing war in Ukraine and skyrocketing energy prices are likely to be responsible for the weakening euro.
