Former Swansea winger Routledge announces retirement

Former Swansea winger Routledge announces retirement

Former Swansea winger Wayne Routledge has called time on his playing career.

Routledge, 36, who spent the last 10 years at Swansea, turned down the offer of a new one-year contract by the Welsh club in the summer after working his way back from knee surgery.

The former Crystal Palace forward revealed in August he had played his last game for Swansea, but did not say what the future held.

Routledge confirmed his retirement in a social media post which said: “It’s time… Retirement is a strange word, when all you know is this!

“It’s made me who I am today. Thank you all!”

In the second leg of last season’s Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final against Barnsley, Routledge sustained a serious knee injury.

He made over 300 appearances for Swansea in all competitions, scoring 33 goals, after joining the club from Newcastle for an undisclosed fee in 2011.

Routledge began his career at Palace, for whom he made over 120 appearances in all competitions, making his Football League debut in the old First Division aged 16 against West Brom in 2001.

A move to Tottenham followed in 2005, but he made only five first-team appearances for the club in two-and-a-half years, during which he had loan spells at Portsmouth and Fulham.

The former England Under-21 international also had spells at Aston Villa and QPR, returning to join the latter on loan in 2011 and also had a temporary spell at Cardiff in 2008-09.

WH Cornerstone Investments Announces Publication of a New Book by Bill Harris, CFP®, RMA®

WH Cornerstone Investments Announces Publication of a New Book by Bill Harris, CFP®, RMA®

Bill Harris, CFP®, RMA®, Author of ‘Inheriting Your Spouse’s IRA: A Widow’s Guide to Keeping More of Her Assets’.

This new book tackles the estate tax and legal maze to provide an empowering roadmap for widows inheriting an IRA

DUXBURY, MA, UNITED STATES, July 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — WH Cornerstone Investments is excited to announce the publication of ‘Inheriting Your Spouse’s IRA: The Widow’s Guide to Keeping More of Her Assets’ a new book written by co-founder Bill Harris, CFP®, RMA®.

An IRA is one of the most common assets a couple will have in their portfolio and inheriting a deceased spouse’s IRA touches almost everyone’s lives either directly or indirectly through parents, family and friends. Yet until this book, very little attention has been given to the surviving spouse’s inherited IRA. Bill Harris, CFP®, RMA® provides a comprehensive planning guide for navigating the estate tax and legal maze associated with the IRA universe which also includes the new tax rules and limitations brought about by the recent SECURE Act.

As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Practitioner and Retirement Management Advisor, Bill’s knowledge and experience optimizes his widowed clients’ financial resources. His expertise of over 30 years focuses on helping widows obtain financial peace of mind, rise up, and navigate their path forward.

‘After years of seeing and hearing stories from clients and prospects of inaccurate information regarding inherited IRAs shared by uninformed or under informed advisors, I felt compelled to share this knowledge,’ explained Harris. ‘IRA’s are often a couples largest asset and ensuring that it is inherited properly is vital because these decisions are irrevocable.’

Widows face tax hurdles that can cause financial harm on their inheritances, including the widows’ tax, the Social Security ‘tax torpedo’, the surtax on net investment income, IRMAA, Medicare Part B (medical insurance), and Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) surcharges. Important decisions on how to handle an inherited IRA can be irrevocable and costly if not properly advised. This book is a roadmap packed full of real-life examples to educate and support a surviving spouse.

Sovereign Associates Announces Their Interview in the New York Times

Sovereign Associates Announces Their Interview in the New York Times

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, July 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sovereign Associates is a premier boutique real estate firm, specializing in residential rentals and sales in Northern Manhattan. With over 20 years of brokerage experience, Sovereign has long-standing relationships with many landlords and property managers.

Due to their status Sovereign has been named and quoted in The New York Times article Washington Heights: The ‘Last Bastion of Affordability’ in Manhattan. Greg Healy, the principal broker of Sovereign Associates, and Adrivel Ruiz an associate broker were interviewed in regards to their opinion and experience on the significant changes the pandemic brought specifically to the Washington Heights area.

Broadway divides west and east. The west side “probably has the greatest concentration of co-ops and some condos,” said Greg Healy, the owner-broker of the Sovereign Associates real estate agency. As the leading real estate brokerage firm in Washington Heights and Northern Manhattan, Sovereign is an influential voice in the communities on the northern part of the island.

“This is not a normal market,” said Ms. Ruiz, of Sovereign Associates. “With the pandemic, the market changed — it became a buyer’s market; it became a renter’s market.”

Washington Heights, a neighborhood in the uppermost part of Manhattan, has moderate rents and large apartments compared to the rest of Manhattan which makes it an attractive area and one of the last more affordable areas to live. Washington Heights has some of the highest numbers of rent-stabilized apartments in the city and so this has made the area a high-demand place to live.

About Sovereign:
Sovereign Real Estate is the leading real estate brokerage in Northern Manhattan. While serving the neighborhoods of Inwood, Marble Hill, Washington Heights, Hamilton Heights, and Hudson Heights, Sovereign Real Estate is an influential voice in the communities on the northern part of the island.
Gregory Healy, the principal broker at Sovereign Real Estate, has been working in Hudson Heights and Inwood since 1991. With a policy of directness and openness, Healy and the Sovereign Real Estate team strive to go beyond the duties of a real estate brokerage and become a resource for home buyers and renters.
