In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Matina Agio, joining us from Athens, Greece. When Matina talks about inheritance as ‘the value transferred from one generation to another’, she’s not necessarily focused on the money. For her money is just a symbol, and what people are really after are rich experiences. The Greeks call this Eudaimonia, which means the condition of ‘human flourishing’. It’s based on having things in balance within us and outside of us.
Matina is an inheritance consultant who inspires a deeper perspective on inheritance – beyond the legal and financial. She helps her clients transform their inheritance into meaningful legacy, long-lasting wealth and insightful self-discovery.
Through her signature method – THE INHERITANCE MUSE METHOD™, Matina’s clients overcome the emotional and practical challenges & complexities of their inheritance. She supports them in their decision-making, regarding the sorting out, preserving, repurposing and managing of their artefacts, property & possessions.
Matina’s work addresses both the tangible and intangible aspects of inheritance. She believes that inheritance is not a one-time event. It is a fluid, dynamic and creative force in our lives that is ongoing, since we were born.
Matina’s experience of living and working in England, France, Germany, Italy, US, Canada and Greece, allows her to address the needs and varying backgrounds of her clients. Her clients include collectors, historic homeowners and family office members around the world.
Matina previously served as director of Athenian Muse Holdings – a boutique consultancy for culture-based enterprises and house museums. In parallel, she managed her family’s historical home and collection, initiating projects related to its cultural legacy. She has been involved in heritage crowdfunding projects, such as the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers in the Loire and other preservation initiatives, where she is active or part owner.
