Torsten Jeworrek, member of board of management, Munich Re, commenting on their $300 million deal to buy relayr, a Berlin-based Internet of Things (IoT) startup that helps industrial companies extract valuable data from their machinery: “The Internet of Things is already changing our world and has the potential to disrupt the traditional insurance and reinsurance industry through new business models, services and competitors. This acquisition is a clear example of our strategy: we are combining our own knowledge of risk, data analysis skills and financial strength with relayr’s technological expertise. This is our basis to develop new ideas for tomorrow’s commercial and industrial world.”
